Answer: The Grammys will get some in-person Mick Jagger satisfaction for the very first time when the veteran rocker performs live, on stage, on this year’s telecast.
A Grammy winner himself and a recipient of the awards show’s Lifetime Achievement honor, Jagger has only once before appeared on the Grammys, back in 1986 and via satellite with his fellow Rolling Stones. But at the 53rd annual Grammycast, airing February 13 on CBS, the 67-year-old entertainer will not only hit the stage but also perform, with Raphael Saadiq and his band.
In concert, they will help tribute recently deceased Grammy winner Solomon Burke and other music industry biggies who passed away during the past year.
Jagger and Saadiq join previously announced Grammy Awards performers and nominees Arcade Fire, Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Muse, Katy Perry; Justin Bieber, Usher, Jaden Smith, B.o.B, Bruno Mars, Janelle Monáe, Drake and Rihanna, Cee Lo Green, Gwyneth Paltrow and the Jim Henson Company Puppets.
