Who Will Perform At The 2016 Grammy Awards? There Are Some Satisfying Choices That We Could See
Monday was an incredibly exciting day, as the Grammy nominations for 2016 were finally announced. While there were the usual surprises, and snubs, to be chewed over, there were, of course, several performers on the list who truly deserved to be there. After weeks of speculation, it was satisfying to find out who would be vying for awards in the coming weeks. But, now that we know who is up for an award, the next big question to ask is who will be performing at the Grammys? With so many amazing artists to choose from amongst the 2016 Grammy nominees, it's sure to be an epic ceremony.
One artist I would love to see perform at the 2016 Grammys is Courtney Barnett. Nominated in the Best New Artist category, Barnett's music career has been picking up speed throughout 2015. You may not think you know her work, but recently she's had songs featured on TV shows like Younger , The Vampire Diaries and Bojack Horseman. From performing on The Ellen Show, to her album getting five star reviews, Barnett would be a great choice to perform at the Grammys, especially as her pared back style would be a total palate cleanser next to more gratuitous performers.
It'd also be satisfying to see Drake perform his nominated track "Back to Back," especially as the song forms part of a much larger story — Drake's famous feud with Meek Mill was one of the highlights of 2015. If Drake performs at all though, I'd much rather he did "Hotline Bling," dance moves and all.
Taylor Swift has got to be a shoe-in as a performer at the 2016 Grammys. She famously didn't perform at last year's Grammys, despite being nominated, though Swift's outfit was completely on fleek and unforgettable. As Swift is nominated in seven categories this time round, it seems likely that she will perform, perhaps even bestowing us with a mash-up of several of her hits ("Bad Blood" and "Blank Space" are nominated) or bringing several of her BFFs onstage like she did throughout her 1989 tour. Any Swift performance is sure to be epic.
Considering the incredible list of nominees for the 2016 Grammys, the night in question is sure to be a who's who of the music industry. I don't think my wish list for the performers is too much to ask.
