The Grammy performance roster already boasts a galaxy of stars that includes Lady Gaga, Green Day, Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Pink, Taylor Swift and Maxwell. So, it just makes sense that the first round of presenters announced on Thursday (January 14) would match that star wattage.
The Recording Academy unveiled the first group of presenters, which includes [artist id="3187077"]Justin Bieber[/artist], [artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist], Ke$ha, the [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brothers[/artist] and LL Cool J. Also scheduled to present awards are actors Kristen Bell, Jeff Bridges and Josh Duhamel and musicians Norah Jones, Ricky Martin, Carlos Santana and ex-Beatle Ringo Starr.
The 52nd annual Grammys will air live at 8 p.m. ET on January 31 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will also feature performances from Bon Jovi, the Dave Matthews Band, Lady Antebellum and the Zac Brown Band. More performers and presenters will be announced soon.
The show will feature live sets from all five of the Album of the Year nominees — Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, the Dave Matthews Band and Taylor Swift — as well as a special song from Bon Jovi as part of a contest called “You Pick It, They Play It!”
The veteran New Jersey band will let fans decide which hit they will play on the show through a contest on CBS’ Web site, where they can pick one of six songs, “Always,” “Bed of Roses,” “Have a Nice Day,” “It’s My Life,” “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.”
Fans are also still encouraged to upload a 20-second video of themselves singing along to a portion of the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” for a chance to have their video appear as part of the Peas’ performance at the show.
