Grammys 2015: Usher, Sam Smith, Pharrell, And John Legend Join Performer Line-Up

Published: Wednesday 21st Jan 2015 by Sam

The Grammy Awards 2015 has been gifted a major bolt of star power courtesy of some of the industry’s leading male talent.

Details below…

Set to air an on February 8th live from the Staples Center, the show’s producers have  announced today that Usher, Sam Smith, and Pharrell Williams will be taking to the stage on music’s biggest calendar night.

Also joining the bill are ‘Glory’ nominees John Legend and Common.

Together, the group join previously announced performers Madonna, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, and AC/DC as some of the major names tapped to rock the event.

Needless to say, a decent premium has been delivered to the bill. However, as keen appreciators of dynamite divas, we’re hoping there is some more oestrogen added in the weeks approaching.

    I wish I can be happy for Usher but his performances have been weak as of late. Still a huge fan of his but it’s time to reclaim his crown! He gets more greater opportunities than Chris Brown to perform on all major events.

      I agree he hasn’t evolved as a performer…he needs to up his performing style so he can separate himself from Omarion, Chris and anyone else who have MJ inspired moves.

    Beyonce, i better see your ass performing on that stage or imma drag the f*** out of u b****. See you.

  3. King M.J January 21, 2015

    I really hope Beyonce performs.

    • Paulo January 21, 2015

      me too but how often do they get to perform 2 years in a row? I think she’ll just be sitting front row and clapping this year.

    • guyyyy January 21, 2015

      Perform what ? she has no single out !

      • Danny Bey January 21, 2015

        She has 7/11 out. But tbh she doesn’t need a single out. She’s nominated for multiple categories and her album was the most relevant album of the past year. She could very well sing any damn song from the album or not even sing one of her songs. Everyone still wants to see her perform bc even when she’s out the limelight, she’s still the most relevant.

  5. Paulo January 21, 2015

  6. Skyfall January 21, 2015

    Good lineup so far.

  7. Rowlandstones January 21, 2015

    Kelly should perform At this years Grammy’s that would be amazing.

    • Beyhive January 21, 2015

      I would get my life if Kelly performed on the Grammys. She’s everything and more

  8. Dante January 21, 2015

    I know she’s not the best live performer, but I’d love to see Jhene Aiko perform.

    • Skyfall January 21, 2015

      Yaaaass, they need more underrated artist to perform at these shows than these wack mainstream artist.

  9. Anne January 21, 2015

    I think Beyonce should perform since she is nominated for AOY but I’m not sure what song she should perform. Maybe a ‘Beyonce’ song that has never had a televised performance like Heaven, Superpower, Haunted, Jealous or Pretty Hurts.

    • Danny Bey January 21, 2015

      Superpower would be so appropriate given the issues of racial tension and other issues we’ve been experiencing lately.

  10. blue January 21, 2015

    whats with the grammy twetting 8 anchors? Is rihanna gonna perform?

  11. BamWamm January 21, 2015

    Beyonce gotta perform..AOTY nominees always perform & she is the only AOTY performer who name has not been announced..most likely she will be the last to be announced if she is performing,because her as is definitely going lol.

    Id love to see a Haunted or Crazy In Love mix performance.

    • Anne January 21, 2015

      I agree but I don’t think CIL mix would make sense. I think her performance has to be a song from the AOY nominated album. So of the two you named only Haunted makes sense imo. Just hope she performs ssomething, we’ll see.

  12. Meteorite January 21, 2015

    I was and am still hoping Christina will perform. Grammys needs at least one person who can SANG! No offense I’m not to thrilled about this line up…

  13. metzo January 21, 2015

    I want Beyonce to perform haunted or Jealous or CIL remix since it comes out just days after the grammys. She better not perform 7/11 or she’ll lose all credibility

    • RIHANNA&BEYONCE January 21, 2015

      we have the same taste in Beyonce Music, Jealous is very underrated its a really beautiful Ballad…..

  14. RIHANNA&BEYONCE January 21, 2015

    I really can’t imagine an award Show without BEYONCE performing, we all know her performances sends chills down our spines the anyways she will be performing twice one with Nicki Minaj Feeling myself and one song Hopefully Jealous or Haunted from the Album, after beys perfoms I’ll just turn the TV off….
    erhaps keep it on to see her win awards..

    Why is Usher ALWAYS nominated for something (at least in the r&B categories) when he is releasing just ok stuff at best BUT other amazing artists never get a chance to be nominated and are always ignored as if they were nobodies? If Usher get nominations for the music he is doing then people like Mariah freaking Carey sure deserves to have a nomination for something from time to time. So biased. It´s a little bit like Beyonce´s history with the grammys (not this time, cause this time she really deserves it and pushed her artistry and music), always nominated no matter if it was basic stuff. At their rate Mariah or Madonna should have been nominated at least 200 times and won like 45 grammys. Cause you all know those two catalogues destroy Bey´s or Usher´s.

  17. Kiyonce’ January 21, 2015

    Want Bey to perform so bad !! But what ? Lol hope maybe she might have some new music hiding somewhere you never know ! But I hope she performs she’s on a lot of billboards
