Confirmed: Madonna Set To Perform At Grammys For First Time In Nearly A Decade

Published: Friday 24th Jan 2014 by Rashad

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:

With the caption:

“It’s official! I’m off my crutches and I’m looking for the perfect pair of heels to wear to the Grammys……….#instagrammy / My lips are almost sealed! I can’t say anything more………………..#itsasecret”

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:

  5. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Madonna’s best time as an artist was the late 80’s/Early 90’s.

    Like A Prayer
    Bedtime Stories
    Vogue/Justify My Love/Rescue Me

    That was her best time for me.

    Her vocals were so raw & mature.

    This is her best VOCAL performance on a song imo…
    She should’ve won best pop vocal Grammy for this song…

  6. Molly January 24, 2014

    QUEEN Ciara has #1s, platinum albums and a grammy. Llama fail drunk is trying to play catch up

  30. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    I find it funny how people say “Oh Madonna Girl” or “Wheelchair Madonna” or “GrandMadonna”…

    Like yall not gonna get old one day. All you have to do is keep breathing & before you know it. You too will be pushing 60 years old.

    If Madonna is able to still run, jump, scream & turn up!

    Why cant she still be an active artist?

    Madonna still sells out more shows than any of OUR favs can ever do.

    Rihanna only sold those stadiums out due to LOW ticket sales.

    Madonna sells out stadiums starting at 100$’s and up.

    Madonna is arguably still the most profitable pop star on the planet & still has a love for what she does. So leave her alone…

    @SuperCisus Lana couldn’t even outsing Britney spears on her worse day that’s how pathetic Lanas so called singin is..

  33. Touche January 24, 2014

    As long as she gives me great visuals I’m fine because I’m not here for her vocals.

  34. Molly January 24, 2014

    @Whatever how about go buy XO and get that struggling single into the top 40.

  35. whatever January 24, 2014

    lol cierror has #1’s and platinum albums from last decade


    what has she done for me lately? *janet voice* HAHAHAHAHA

  36. whatever January 24, 2014

    how about you buy that flop album and get to sell more than K.michelle’s BWAHAHAHAHAHA

  37. Slayty Perry (Prismatic Tour) January 24, 2014

    The Queen of Pop will slay! Madonna has never put on a dull performance. I doubt she’ll be “rusty” on stage either. Madge, Katy, John Legend, and Kendrick Lamar will make this years show interesting.

  38. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Nobody likes Madonna’s vocals?!!!!


    If nobody likes Madonna’s vocal then why did she sell 300+ Million Records …

    Also, she sold lots of BALLAD singles too..

  39. Yazmine January 24, 2014

    Why do Ciara fans shade with stuff their fave can’t even do? Logic? Talking about top 10s, top 40s, Grammy nomination and what not like their fav is slaying those avenues. Where is her album on ITunes?

  40. BeyIsKing January 24, 2014

    I can’t at Ciara stans coming for other people’s faves. Like you stan for Ciara the shade writes itself. The mere fact that you stan for Ciara is shade enough itself.

  41. Touche January 24, 2014

    Whatever hush! Stop trying to start s*** with the c-squad.

  42. whatever January 24, 2014

    touche mind ya business b****

  43. Yazmine January 24, 2014

    Ciara stans advising people to buy something LOLOLOL. When they can’t even get their fave past 200k after 6 months? I can’t.

  44. Molly January 24, 2014

    @BeyisaThief @YeastInfectionYazmine why are you b****** more concerned about the C squad and Ciara then the topic at hand? lol we run you b****** i see.

  45. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Ciara fans always be getting dragged on here.

    Yall are too mean to Ciara.

    Atleast, she is trying. Its not Ciara’s fault people aren’t purchasing her albums. She performs good, gives good music & great promo and still flops.

    I don’t understand how Ciara be flopping tho. She does everything shes suppose to do…

  46. ratedxx(love is beautiful) January 24, 2014

    yes, the queen of pop is performing, I know she will shut it down….she’s in her 50s and killing the game for h*** who are in their so call 30s..

    I ain’t watching but…

  47. Super Cisus January 24, 2014

    B****** keep Ciara’s illustrious name on their fingertips. Ha power…

  48. Yazmine January 24, 2014

    @Molly No don’t fatter yourself. You are the ones shading others peoples faves like you don’t Stan for the biggest FLOP. Why aren’t you b****** concerned about getting Ciara past 200k?

  49. RDK January 24, 2014

    Now i have a reason to watch,

  50. Rihanna Lately January 24, 2014

    Well this biitch will slay these mediocre whores side eye *Katy Trash, Beyflop* who performs the same thing over and over and that untalented trash whoore Katy

  51. NN January 24, 2014

    chile, nobody wanna see Madonna old wrinkly b*** on stage, stretchin to yoga classics- sit down Felicia!

  52. what? January 24, 2014

    The c squad are the the biggest joke of all. Ciaras sales are a drag itself LOL. I just read an article on the Billboard website about Ciara’s pregancy from a few days ago and it stated that her album has only sold 133k as of January so how can they drag anybody else. If I was them I would be embarrassed to show myself on this site.

  53. BeyIsKing January 24, 2014

    No one cares. Honestly tho everyone is anticipating Bey’s performance everything else is trivial in comparison.

  54. Hadley January 24, 2014

    Madonna doesn’t interest me as a performer. Ill be watching for Bey, Pink and Bruno performances.

  55. SLAY_HIVE January 24, 2014

    *yawns* after Bey performs, I’ll be sure to change the channel! Hopefully they want try to make us wait til the last hour of the show to hold the ratings. 🙁

  56. SLAY_HIVE January 24, 2014


  57. slaylor swift January 24, 2014

    Taylors gonna slay.

  58. Lovebird January 24, 2014

    I don’t think anybody is interested in seeing those yoga moves besides her stans.

    I think most of the people like me will tune in to see of the paramedics who’ll be on standby will be part of the show.

  59. Lovebird January 24, 2014

    Anyway good luck Madonna and hope you put on a good show.

    Would rather watch Madonna’s yoga moves than Mariah’s wagging finger, Katy’s screamong match or Lana counting the tiles.

  60. Love_Music January 24, 2014

    Expectations are way too high for this Beyonce performance. I mean….she’s going to have to parachute in and do backflips to satisfy the people! I hope she and Jay can pull something off that isn’t stale, since they have performed together often enough that people might be bored with it.

    Pink is always good, her best performance there being “Glitter in the Air”. Chicks vocals are always flawless.

    Love Madonna, but I do wish she’d stop seeming so desperate for attention. She’s the Queen of pop…..

  61. ASHTON January 24, 2014

    Drunk In Love is #12 on the Hot 100

  62. MusicStan( Ya’ll Know Who I stan for ) January 24, 2014

    *Inhale the fresh air and exhale, now time to put your two cent into* It is sooooooooooooooooooo comcial that my fellow hive memebers are always bring Ciara name into something that clearly have anything to do with her…. ( weak ass shade) Now Ciara is performing at the offical grammy after party which is a good thing.. Half of ya’ll on this god damn site can’t even get into a punk club at that and ya’ll trying to throw shade at someone who clearly has more then you…. Pitiful…. Ya’ll sooooo Lame ( in My Hova “TAKEOVER” VOICE)…. ya’lll think dragging someone cause they like another artists that you don’t care for is life and you doing something n**** please….. Everyone isn’t going to Like Beyonce,. Gaga, Katy, Rihanna, and etc just #deal with it… I find it funny how half of ya’ll are MEN ( OR PRETENDING TO BE) and Ya’ll act worst then Females… Shameful!!! I mean there is more to life then just sitting on thatgrapejuice and agrue about women none of you are ever going to meet in person…. None of you are ever going to Meet Beyonce, Rihanna, Ciara, Gaga, Katy and etc EVER!!!! Pulling these same Recepits from the beginning of these feamles careers is getting tried *In my Janet Jackson voice* ” what have you done Latley?” probably nothing but sit your fat ass on this site and trying to dragged people cause they don’t like Beyonce…. NewsFlash, Beyonce is great but she isn’t the Best that ever did it…. that is MICHAEL JOESPH JACKSON he will always be the ORIGINAL BLUEPRINT FOR ALL ARTISTS….. Yes she has 17 grammy’s but Michael Jackson Has More awards in his entire career… not just for music but in Philanthropy, he holds records that no one hasn’t achieved yet so if you want to pull receipts pull his and see how A BLACK MAN inspired Millions around the WORLD….. Ya’ll are so quick to talk about things that clearly you don’t have the proper education on to make yourself sound smart… lol fools…. Now that is off my chest back to the topic I’m looking for to see Beyonce, jAY-Z, Lorde, Pharrell and john don’t really care for the Grammy’s cause the artist don’t let loose on their performance and it seem soo stuffy and boring

  63. MusicStan( Ya’ll Know Who I stan for ) January 24, 2014

    @WHAT, and WHAT are your album sales looking like since you want to come for album sales….. DON’T WORRY THE REST OF THE GROUP WILL WAITING ON YOUR ANSWER……. smoke a blunt while waiting

  64. SLAY_HIVE January 24, 2014

    Expectation aren’t too high. Beyonce is known to slay performances, whether she is just standing there singing! She doesn’t have one bad performance. She will bring something new and unexpected. See: Billboard Awards 2011 😉

    Pink is overrated to me. All she does is swing from the ceiling. She is alright!

  65. what? January 24, 2014

    @Musicstan what does your response has to do with anything??? Im not a singer so I dont have any albums dummy. what a stupid comment. that doesnt cahnge the fact that ciara flops and her stans have no rith to drag anybody else. BYE.

  66. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Hi, Music Stan!

  67. Slayretha Franklin January 24, 2014

    Who’s gonna sweep the dust off the stage after she done. Dusty old baaatch!

  68. S****** Blonde January 24, 2014

    Giving me ‘Music’ shades from that pic, @Stephy, i also love ‘Rescue Me’, the whole ‘Blond Ambition’ era was Iconic.

  69. Rosie January 24, 2014

    LMAO the Z-Squad’s obsession with me and Lana is hilarious. I’m not seething at all, my fave is nominated and is actually invited to the Grammys, sitting only a few seats behind Beyoncé and Jay Z among others while Ciara will do a non televised after show performance at the Popeyes down the street. They really need to worry about
    Billboard 200:
    38. Lana Del Rey – Born To Die
    N/A. Ciara – Ciara
    48. Lana Del Rey – Born To Die
    Not in top 1500. Ciara – Ciara
    Worldwide sales
    Lana Del Rey – Born To Die: 5 million+
    Ciara – Ciara: ~160K

  70. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    @Blondie… Yes, 1982-1998 was her prime…

    I purchased all her albums in the 2000s & only liked Confessions. The rest is boring… Music is just ok…

    Overall, 1989-1995 is my fav era for her vocals

    Blonde Ambition Era is her Thriller era

  71. The truth hurts January 24, 2014

    Dying at the z-squad (pretend) stanning for lorde because they are so pressed by rosie constantly dragging the sh*t out of them daily.

  72. FAF January 24, 2014

    God damn~! @Whatever Ci-ERROR has all your love & affection

    4 comments on the same topic?!!?

    What type of dedication?!?? 😆

    she’s preggers & resting at home with her feet up while they broadcast her performance for degree (for which she actually gets PAID unlike the grammy acts)

    SEETHE 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  73. FAF January 24, 2014

    @Lies HURT 😆 😆 😆

    I know ur mad lorde will get a grammy and has had a #1 single even after she dragged lana (which has neither)kiii !

    and Lana not even on the Z list… so I’m confused 😆

    id love to be on ciara’s z list with platinum successes & 8 top tens in the US alone

  74. FAF January 24, 2014

    @Rosie since u loove R&B so much (sike, u a pretend to be white, foreign d*** who really lives in the slums of pissy Harlem) u should know u can’t compare an album with a black female r&B star and no top twenty debut single to an album which had summertime s****** remixed twice just to chart and EDM at that.. (her only hit) kii

    I could drag more but I wont give u the attention 😆

    now skidaddle and write me a dissertation full of Ciara statistics (which is all you’re good for bc u stan harder than ANY ci fan on TGJ)

    I know you’ll be glued to that seat with Ciara’s degree promeaux recorded so u can watch it early monday morning… KIIIIIIIII

  75. FAF January 24, 2014

    @Stephy girral what type of flip flopping catfish?? which lightskinned bottom will u be this week, durrling? sit on mama’s lap, now, son 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  76. S****** Blonde January 24, 2014

    All her albums until Confessions were masterpieces, the last two, just ok for her standars, ‘Thriller who?

  77. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    @Blondie, all her albums are NOT masterpieces.

    Madonna: 1982 (GOOD)

    Like A Virgin: 1984 (GOOD)

    True Blue: 1986 (GREAT)

    Like A Prayer: 1988 (GREAT)

    Immaculate Collection: 1990 (PERFECT)

    Erotica: 1992 (PERFECT)

    Bedtime Stories: 1994 (GREAT)

    Ray Of Light: 1998 (PERFECT)

    Music: 2000 (OK)

    American Life: 2003 (FORGETTABLE BUT OK)

    Confessions: 2005 (GREAT)


    MDNA: 2012 (OK)

    That’s my opinion. Also, Thriller is the biggest selling album of all time. Lets not pretend you don’t know the King Of Pop…

  78. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    @FAF… Why in the world is people calling me a catfish with MICHAEL JACKSON IN MY AVI!!!

    That catfish was for BLONDIE to call this number of some hillbilly in Virginia to get cursed out. Im not trying to hook up with Blondie. Stop calling me a catfish. If I wanted to catfish someone it would be on a blog where I can actually see the person. I get way to much DICKK in real life to catfish anyone on this blog.

    BYE FAF… Bitchh who was even talking to your bipolar ass…

  79. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    Also, you can check to see if any picture is real or not on the internet. If I was trying to CATFISH a smart person like Blondie don’tcha know he would’ve found out anyways…

    IT WAS A PRANK get over it assholes

  80. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014


  81. Rosie January 24, 2014

    @F.A.G Summertime Sadness already charted in more countries than Cierror ever will just with the original in 2012, meanwhile your fave can’t even chart outside of the US without paying Icki Minaj for a rent-a-verse. Didn’t Lana outsell Cierror’s last two albums combined worldwide in a week? Hasn’t BTD outsold Cierror by over 6x in the US? Hasn’t BTD outsold Cierror’s discography? Hell even Paradise (an EP released in only a few select countries with no hits or promo and was pretty much made to be rereleased with BTD) outsold Cedric like it was NOTHING. Worry about your flop South Atlanta prostitute fave having to f*** a E-list rapper and becoming his 5th baby momma for publicity and a hit and STILL being able to be the biggest flop in the game.

  82. S****** Blonde January 24, 2014

    American Life is a masterpiece, not your type of music, i get it, is Rock, electronica, folk, it’s one of her best also Music is a gem.

  83. Stephy Tha Lambily January 24, 2014

    @BLONDIE, Lick me…

  84. TinaMinaj January 24, 2014

    Rosie READ the squad for filth! LMAO!! They should just quit!

  85. TRUTH SERUM January 24, 2014

  86. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    @LOEVBIRD DEATH @ yoga moves and the Lana shade!!!!!!!!

    I want to slap you b****!!!

  87. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    I just want Bruno to slay me again!!! He is such a great performer and always consistent!!!

    Im here for Bey’s performance too, but only if its something I havent seen her do before, and only if she leaves Jayz in his seat!

  88. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 25, 2014

    I love how Madge is a Typical Female Leo. and She’s very Smart. 😀

    Can’t wait to watch her performance and listen to Her New Album, Her manager Said she Gonna Have a New album and “hopefully” she will release a Single Soon.

    I just Love this Woman and her Mind. hard Work beats talent Indeed.

    “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Kevin Durant.

  89. JOHNVIDAL January 25, 2014

    Damn it Madonna has been such a hard worker. That performance from 2005 Confessions era was so good and was the last time she really slayed and reinvented herself(that era I mean). I wouldn´t be hoping for something like that now. 8 years have gone by and Madonna wasn´t young then but now she is really old to deliver such a great era/performance. Her last two album have been some of her worst and perofrmances are not the same either (not that they should be, it´s outstading how she has managed to maintain such a good level for so long). We´ll see what she does.
