The list of GRAMMY performers keeps growing: Widely speculated, the Recording Academy now confirms that nominee Taylor Swift will open the show on music’s biggest night. Miguel, The Alabama Shakes and Joey Alexander have also been confirmed as performers during the GRAMMY telecast.
Swift is up for seven awards this year, but she already has seven GRAMMYs at home on her shelf. She will perform an unspecified song from her critical and commercial triumph 1989. The Alabama Shakes snagged impressive nominations for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album for Sound & Color. Miguel is nominated twice in R&B and Urban Contemporary categories.
At just 11 years old, prodigy Joey Alexander is nominated for his album My Favorite Things as well as his improvised jazz solo on “Giant Steps.”
The 58th GRAMMY awards will air Monday, February 15th at 8 p.m. on CBS.
