Singer John Legend and rockers Metallica will be among the top performers at the Grammy Awards on February 12 in Los Angeles, the organizers said Thursday.
John Legend, known for his ballad ‘All of Me,’ is one of the favorites this year. The 38-year-old has already racked up 10 Grammy awards throughout his brilliant career.
Metallica, one of the most influential bands on the metal scene, recently released their first album in eight years. Released in November, it was too late to be eligible for the Grammys this year..
The Recording Academy, who will later announce the names of the other artists to perform, also revealed that country music stars Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban will also be performing during the show.
Grammys winners are rewarded for their creativity and contribution to music rather than for the numbers of the albums they have sold.
This year, the ceremony will be hosted by British funnyman James Corden. The entertainer has built a community of fans through his “Carpool Karaoke”, where he shares an intimate and musical moment with a celebrity during car trips.
Corden, who has sang with and interviewed the likes of Madonna, Adele, Bruno Mars and even Michelle Obama seems like the perfect fit the awards show.
Rapper LL Cool J, has hosted the ceremony the past five years.
