Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will join the already superstar-heavy lineup of performers booked for the Grammy Awards on February 12. The 20-time Grammy-winning rock icon will take the stage to promote his upcoming studio album, Wrecking Ball, the first release since the death last summer of saxophone player and Springsteen right-hand man Clarence Clemons.
In addition to Springsteen, the producers of the 54th annual Grammys announced another round of presenters as well, including actor Jack Black, Fergie, Roots drummer ?uestlove and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr. Other presenters include Drake, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley.
The Springsteen announcement came just a day after Katy Perry was also added to the show. The currently blue-haired pop star is up for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her feel-good empowerment track, “Firework.”
Adele announced her Grammy appearance on Tuesday. The long-rumored performance marks her first since a November vocal surgery. “I’m immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards,” Adele said. “It’s an absolute honor to be included in such a night and for it to be my first performance in months is very exciting and of course nerve-racking, but what a way to get back into it all.”
Rihanna, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean and Nicki Minaj are also confirmed to perform live at the show, which will be hosted by LL Cool J. What Grammy performance are you looking forward to the most? Leave your comment below!
