Eminem, 'NSYNC, and Sheryl Crow with Lenny Kravitz have been added to the list of performers for the 45th annual Grammy Awards.
Although details of his performance are not known, if previous awards show performances are any indication, the set from the Detroit rapper with five Grammy nominations should be special. At the 43rd annual Grammys, Eminem delivered "Stan" as a duet with Elton John. Six months earlier, he was surrounded by throngs of Shady clones for "The Real Slim Shady" at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.
'NSYNC's performance, the group's first since its tour wrapped in April, will be part of a dedication to the Bee Gees, whose Maurice Gibb died last month (see "Maurice Gibb Of The Bee Gees Dead At 53"). The disco trio will receive the Grammy Legend Award for their contributions and influence in the recording field.
Entering New York's Madison Square Garden with eight Grammys already under her belt, Crow could come away with a cool baker's dozen should she make good on her five nods. Kravitz, meanwhile, has won four Grammys in the past. (Click here for the list of nominees and for photos of this year's Grammy nominees and performers.)
Elvis Costello, No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal, and Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt will pay their respects to the late Joe Strummer with a tribute to the singer/guitarist and his band the Clash, who are up for Best Long Form Music Video with "Westway to the World." Costello and No Doubt each racked up three nominations, while Springsteen is contending for five.
Strummer died of a heart attack in December (see "Autopsy Finds Joe Strummer Died Of Cardiac Arrest").
Eminem, 'NSYNC and Sheryl Crow with Lenny Kravitz join previously announced performers Ashanti, Avril Lavigne and No Doubt, among others (see "No Doubt To Play, Beyonce and Michelle Branch To Present At Grammys").
