Grammy 2016 Must See Performances

The biggest night in music is finally here and we are towering in anticipation for this year’s performers. The 58th Annual Grammy Awards is jam packed with heart felt tributes, hit collaborations and massive, legendary talent.

Adele

New You-Adele

Ten time Grammy winner Adele is back on the stage to well up our eyes and steal our hearts. After beating *NSYNC with her best selling album of 2015, it’s safe to say, the audience at home and in house will be stunned by whatever awe-inspiring, record breaking single she decides to sing from “25”.

Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry)

New You-Jonny Depp

Rock legend and “Wayne’s World” cameo great, Alice Cooper + Aerosmith’s bad ass guitar player of all time, Joe Perry + Captain Jack Sparrow/Johnny Depp = MIND BLOWN.

Aerosmith guitarist Perry, 65, vows that his fledgling group is going to blow people away in its first major U.S. televised outing. We’re not worthy!

Lady Gaga, paying tribute to David Bowie

New You-Lady Gaga

The night will certainly come to a climax when Lady Gaga pulls out all the stops for an amazing tribute to David Bowie who passed away just a month ago at the age of 69 from cancer. She has already expressed the honor of this performance by tattooing her idol’s face on her side which showed up on snap chat over the weekend. The performance will reportedly last six or seven minutes, and feature three or four of Bowie’s biggest songs.

Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr., and Bonnie Raitt, paying tribute to B.B. King

New You-BB King

The Grammys look to pay tribute to music legend B.B. King who passed away last May. This special performance will feature country upstart Chris Stapleton, singer/guitarist Gary Clark Jr. and blues legend Bonnie Raitt. Producers chose the Grammy-nominated Stapleton after seeing a You Tube performance of him singing King’s “The Thrill Is Gone.” The King of Blues is surely missed and we can’t wait for this performance.

Justin Bieber and Jack Ü (Diplo and Skrillex)

New You- JackU

One of the world’s largest pop stars who, surprisingly, has yet to win a Grammy is hitting the stage performing fan favorite “Where Are You Now”. Beiber had many chart chart toppers but this one turned out to be and epic EDM club jam with hit collaboration, Diplo and Skrillex (aka Jack U). I’m pumped!

Luke Bryan, John Legend, Demi Lovato, and Meghan Trainor with Lionel Richie

New You- Lionel Richie

The uber talented group of pop, country and blues musicians will perform in a medley of Richie’s hits including “Hello”, which will be performed by Lovato, and “Easy like Sunday Morning,” which will be performed by Legend, before being joined by the songwriter himself.

Pitbull, Travis Barker, and Robin Thicke

New You-Pitbull

Who isn’t super stoked for the triumphant return of Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker to the Grammy stage. Barker, who famously performed with rappers Lil Wayne, Eminem and Drake at The Grammys in 2010 and with LL Cool J in 2013, is now joining Blurred Lines singer Robin Thick and Mr. 305 rapper Pitbull. I’m on the edge of my seat for that one for sure…
