Queen Bey and the Queen of Pop in one night? It's only appropriate that music's biggest night will include performances from two of the industry's brightest stars. Beyonce and Madonna are expected to perform at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards next weekend, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
As the LA Times reported Friday, Jan. 17, the dancing divas are among the big surprises scheduled for the awards show. The two hitmakers, however, will not be performing together, the insider tells Us.
According to the paper, Madonna will provide guest vocals during a performance from one of the evening's nominees.
The 2014 Grammy Awards will mark for the "XO" singer, meanwhile, her first TV performance after dropping her fifth studio album, Beyonce, in late December. The record has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide since it's shocking surprise release.
Her rap mogul hubby Jay Z, meanwhile, leads the pack of Grammy nominees with nine nods for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Pop Duo Performance.
Both Beyonce and Madonna took center stage during the 2013 and 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Shows, respectively. The Material Girl, 55, recently attended a Beyonce concert and expressed support for her fellow singer: "Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad ass show!" Madonna wrote beside a picture of the sexy songstress on stage at the Barclays Center in NYC. "Girls run the world!"
They will join performers like John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Blake Shelton, and more next weekend.
The Grammys awards ceremony will air Sunday, Jan. 26 on CBS at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time.
