The Lumineers, Ed Sheeran + More to Perform at 2013 Grammys
The Recording Academy announced the newcomers in a press release for the 55th Annual event, which takes place in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. Carrie Underwood, Jack White, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert were also added to the performance roster, which previously included fun., Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Mumford & Sons, and the Black Keys.
The Lumineers will almost certainly perform ‘Ho Hey,’ which has been all over tv commercials and the radio over the past 12 months and helped the trio scoop up two nominations, including Best New Artist.
Sheeran was overlooked for that category, but ‘The A Team’ is up for Song of the Year. He has performed the song numerous times over the past year, so teaming up with Elton John will probably be a refreshing change. Elton has been a part of many notable Grammy collaborations over the years, performing with Eminem in 2001 and Lady Gaga in 2010. There’s no piano in ‘The A Team,’ an acoustic song about a troubled young woman, so we’re curious to see what Sheeran and John have planned.
Il be playing at he Grammys on the 10th of feb, singing a duet of one of my songs with Elton John, very excited about that !
