Two of the music industry’s biggest rumors of the week have both proven themselves true.
Yes, last week we reported that Beyonce and Madonna were set to hit the 56th annual Grammy Awards stage this Sunday as surprised performers. Not even 3 days later, the ‘Drunk In Love’ diva and her hubby co-star Jay Z were confirmed as featured performers for the show.
Now, in a move that rocked fans further, the Grammys committee have confirmed that Queen of Pop Madonna will indeed take the stage at this week’s ceremony – her first performance since 2006 when she brought down the house with her comeback hit ‘Hung Up’…
Fans were hung up this week on hints that Madonna would be in attendance at the 2014 Grammys, a rumor she confirmed via social media when she posted:

While rumors swirled the net that the 7-time Grammy winner would hit the stage, it was not until moments ago that those whispers were officially confirmed via the Grammys themselves. The diva joins a line-up that features performances from Beyonce, Jay Z, John Legend, Pink, Stevie Wonder, Kendrick Lamar and so many more.
Could she be performing new material? We don’t know yet. But, until we find out, stroll down memory lane with us to Madge’s last show-stopping visit to the Grammys:
