Madonna, Billie Joe Armstrong & Miranda Lambert to Perform at 2014 GRAMMYs
By Shannon Carlin
The GRAMMYs may only be two days away, but they’re not quite yet done announcing the big night’s performers.
Today (Jan. 24), it was revealed that Madonna will hit the stage on Sunday night (Jan. 26). No word yet on what the 7-time GRAMMY winner will perform on the live show being that her last album, MDNA came out in 2012.
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Miranda Lambert have also been added to the list, performing a tribute to the late Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers. Back in November, Armstrong and Norah Jones released a duets album called Foreverly, which had the two remaking the Everly Brothers 1958 full-length, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us.
Both Armstrong and Lambert are nominated for awards this year: Armstrong for Best Music Film with Green Day’s ¡Cuatro! and Lambert for Best Country Solo Performance with “Mama’s Broken Heart.”
