Adele and Kendrick Lamar Among Stars Set to Perform at Grammy Awards
On Wednesday, organizers announced the first round of artists who will dominate the Grammy stage on Feb. 15 – and the “Hello” singer is on the list.
Lamar leads the pack of stellar nominees, which were announced in December. With 11 nods, the rapper has the second most nominations in one year ever. And he’s not disappointed about being second to Michael Jackson, who nabbed 12 nominations thanks to Thriller in 1984.
“I’m still soaking that all in,” Lamar told The New York Times in December. “Michael will forever be the greatest.”
The “Alright” rapper added: “I’m glad it was at 11. I would never want to even think about putting myself on the same level as Michael, simply because I haven’t put in the work that he did. It couldn’t be a better number.”
