Beyonce & Jay Z to Perform at the GRAMMYs
By Shannon Carlin
Music’s biggest night just got music’s favorite couple to don the stage at this year’s show.
In a commercial yesterday (Jan. 19), CBS announced that Beyoncé and Jay Z would be performing at this year’s GRAMMYs, airing next Sunday (Jan. 26). And in hopes to get fans even more excited, the ad promises that their performance will happen within the first hour of the show.
Though there has been no official announcement about the duo’s upcoming appearance on the broadcast, it’s been reported that the two will hit the stage together for a performance of their GRAMMY-nominated duet “Part II (On The Run)” off Jay’s album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail, along with Bey’s song “Drunk In Love.”
Beyoncé earned only one nomination this year for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for her duet with Jay—her self-titled visual album came out after the nominations were already announced—but Jay earns the title of the most nominated artist of 2014 with nine noms, including Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Album and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, where he’s nominated with both Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake for their song “Holy Grail.”
