The Weeknd to perform with Daft Punk; ATCQ and .Paak to perform with Dave Grohl.
The Grammys made a pair of big announcements this morning. The Weeknd will perform at the upcoming 59th Grammys with Daft Punk. It will be Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s first live performance since the 2014 Grammys (Bangalter has tinnitus). In addition, A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak, and Dave Grohl will take the stage together.
This is the most exciting round of Grammy performance announcements from a hip hop perspective. Adele, Bruno Mars, Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban have already been tapped to perform. The Grammys are set to take place at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday, February 12th at 8 PM ET on CBS. James Corden will host.
