Swift Added To Grammys

02:02 PM Tuesday 2/3/09 | |

Grammy organizers must have gotten around to reading Pollstar’s Grammy coverage because they’ve finally taken our recommendation and added Taylor Swift to the list of performers at the 51st annual award show.

Swift will sing along with Miley Cyrus in a special performance. Additional artists added to the performance lineup include current Grammy nominees Adele, Chris Brown and Sugarland.

Estelle and Kanye West will perform together and the Grammy Awards will also include a Four Tops tribute featuring Duke Fakir (2009 Lifetime Achievement Award honoree and original member of the Four Tops), Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo.

Previously announced performers include U2, Rihanna and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. There’s also Kenny Chesney, Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, Jonas Brothers, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, Radiohead, T.I., Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood and Jay-Z.

Presenters include Jack Black, Duffy and Josh Groban.

The show takes place Feb. 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It will be broadcast in HDTV and 5.1 Surround Sound on CBS from 8-11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The Grammy Awards will also be featured on radio via Westwood One and covered online at Grammy.com and CBS.com, as well as on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Last.fm.

Additional performers, presenters and special segments will be announced soon.

    The Grammys are all about ratings, money and big names.  Period.

    I have to say that I am disappointed that Taylor and Miley were invited to perform.  They were not nominated so why should they get to perform.  I guess I just think that nominees should get to perform on the biggest night in music.  If I was nominated and over looked by them I would be irritated.  This is so unfair to all of the other talented nominees.
