Even if he doesn't win at least one of the eight awards he's up for at the [article id="1600678"]51st Annual Grammy Awards[/article], [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] will indeed take the stage at the Staples Center on February 8. Weezy F. Baby will perform at the Grammy Awards, a source close to show has confirmed to MTV News.
And what should we expect from Wayne's set at the prestigious ceremony? Maybe his biggest-scale TV performance to date, the [article id="1594268"]2008 VMAs[/article], will give us a clue.
"I thought it out," Wayne said of his VMA show. "And that's very scary. For me to plan something and execute it, that's when I murder the world. And I'm gonna murder that performance."
Surely, he will be showing out for the Grammy Awards too. Weezy has been getting kudos for his live-performance chops while out on the road right now. The New Orleans Fireman is hitting the stage with a live band as he headlines the [article id="1600172"]I Am Music tour[/article] along with T-Pain, Keyshia Cole, Gym Class Heroes and Keri Hilson.
Last week, the rumor mill went crazy when portions from an interview with Canadian MC Drake hit the blogs. In it, Drake described Wayne's next LP as being an all-rock effort. But in October, Wayne explained his musical ambitions to Mixtape Monday, saying that he's beyond genres.
"People see the guitars, and they wanna call it rock and roll," Wayne said. "I plug up the bass, I plug up the electric, I plug up the acoustic. It's not really rock and roll, it's just great music I'm doing right now."
