Mick Jagger making rare Grammy Awards appearance
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Musical history will be made later this month when Rolling Stone front man Mick Jagger makes his first-ever live appearance at the Grammy Awards.
Jagger has agreed to taking part in the annual “In Memoriam” segment, and will pay tribute to the late gospel soul singer Solomon Burke, who passed away in October.
Not that this is Jagger’s first Grammy appearance. Way back in 1986, he and his bandmates accepted the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, but they appeared via satellite from London, RollingStone.com reports.
Jagger will be in good company at the Grammys this year. Arcade Fire, Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Muse, and Katy Perry will perform, while the evening’s Grammy nominees include Justin Bieber, Usher, Jaden Smith, B.o.B, Bruno Mars and Janelle Monáe, Drake and Rihanna, Cee Lo Green, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place live on Sunday, Feb. 13, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast on CBS from 8 to 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The show also will be supported on radio worldwide via Westwood One, and covered online at GRAMMY.com and CBS.com, and on YouTube.
