Lorde To Perform At Grammy Nominations Show With Katy Perry & Taylor Swift

Lorde has been added to the line-up to the Grammy Awards nominations special concert, which broadcasts live from Los Angeles at 10 p.m. ET on CBS this Friday. Oh, the Grammy Awards nominations concert, titled The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night? Yes, you remember it from last year — that thing where LL Cool J (who’s hosting again this year!) runs through the nominations in a deeply awkward way, interspersed with inexplicable performances. It’s weird. Real weird.

At any rate, here’s what you can expect: Lorde will perform (hopefully shooting a withering look at LL Cool J as she mutters, “That simpleton,” under her breath), and T.I. and Robin Thicke will also perform “Blurred Lines” alongside members of Earth, Wind & Fire, and Keith Urban will sing Bill Withers‘ “Ain’t No Sunshine” with Miguel, and also there will be pre-taped performances from Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, so if it sounds like music’s strangest night, you’re already right. 

Get ready. It’s all happening.
