Sam Smith Added To ‘A Very Grammy Christmas’ Lineup
The Recording Academy’s A Very Grammy Christmas special just got even bigger, as Sam Smith has just been added to the lineup! The UK crooner will perform at the one-hour entertainment special, joining the likes of Ariana Grande, Pharrell, Mary J. Blige, Tim McGraw and Maroon 5.
Grande’s segment with Big Sean, along with the other artists, were previously taped on November 18 in Los Angeles, so it’s possible that Smith will perform live. A Very Grammy Christmas is set to air on December 5 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS. That same evening at 10 p.m., the academy plans to announce the 2015 Grammy nominations for Album of the Year.
Four of the category nods will be revealed earlier that morning at 8:30 a.m.. After that, the rest of the nominations will roll out via Twitter throughout the day from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.. Look out for the 57th annual Grammys when it broadcasts on February 8 on CBS at 8 p.m.!
