The 2019 Grammy Awards ceremony is drawing closer and besides the awards themselves, the next big thing is the live performances. This year’s announced performers are perfectly balanced between musical legends and newest breakout stars.
One of the main highlights from the 61st Annual Grammy Awards is a special tribute to the 8-time Grammy winning legend Dolly Parton. Not only will she get a tribute by a collaborative performance from Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and Katy Perry, but Dolly Parton herself will be performing at the show. Parton will perform a new song from her latest album ‘Dumplin’.’ Further, she is to be recognized as ‘2019 MusiCares Person of the Year’ for her service to music through initiatives such as Dollywood Foundation.
The opening act of the 2019 Grammy Awards is promised to be yet another spectacle. J Balvin, Young Thug, Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval are to join Camila Cabello for a stunning collaboration. The song/s are not revealed yet.
