Beyonce, who’s nominated for six Grammys for her ground-breaking 2014 self-titled album, has just been added to the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
Instead of belting out a medley from her own arsenal of hits, Queen Bey will sing the gospel tune ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord.’ She’ll perform the song as an opener for John Legend and Common’s Oscar-nominated ‘Glory,’ off the soundtrack to the film, ‘Selma.’
According to Common the performance will be epic. “We do have an incredible introduction to our performance,” the rapper tells Us Weekly. “A segue into our song ‘Glory,’ as a tribute to Selma, being done by the great Beyonce. That’s one of the greatest talents you can have, helping us segue into it. To co-create a performance with someone like her. It’s good.”
Rumor has it, Queen Bey will be introduced before her set by her BFF Gwyneth Paltrow. Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney were also announced as performers at the ceremony. The live show kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 8 at 8PM EST.See 20 Rappers’ & Singers’ Yearbook Photos You Won’t Believe
