It would appear that Jay Z and Beyonce are performing on Sunday at the Grammys, according to a report from multiple sources including AllHipHop.com and US Weekly — At Poor Scholars, we only cite the finest of publications, I tell you!
This would count as great news for a stagnant awards show that needs something! This year looks a bit more promising.
With Jay Z and Beyonce and the additional interesting mash-up of Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder, the Grammys have at least two performances to look forward to this year for a show that can be very dry during most years.
Jay Z is the best performing live rapper ever and after seeing him four times now, I can confidently say that. Jay makes arena shows look easy.
Beyonce has done a Super Bowl halftime show before. Nuff said.
The Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder mash-up has a chance to be really special though. Daft Punk always brings the heat in their live performances and Stevie’s soulful voice will hopefully sound good over Daft Punk’s beats.
