mickjaggermick1 Mick Jagger To Perform At Grammys

This may come as a shock to you all, but [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] has never performed at the Grammys. Well, that will all change following this year’s ceremony.

According to popeater.com, the legendary 67 year-old [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] frontman will grace the Grammy stage as a part of the show’s annual tribute to musicians who have recently passed away.

Grammy organizers also said that Jagger will honor gospel and blues singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Solomon Burke[/lastfm] and be accompanied on stage by soul singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Raphael Saadiq[/lastfm] and his band.

Neil Portnow, the president and chief executive of the Recording Academy said he was thrilled and delighted to have Jagger making his debut on the Grammy stage. He also added, “It’s extraordinary to many of us that the fact is, this will be the first time; he has never performed on the Grammy stage.”

Jagger HAS performed on the annual award show before, but he appeared via satellite in 1986 with The Stone when the band was presented the lifetime achievement award.

The 53rd annual Grammy Awards which airs on Sunday, February 13th, will also feature the likes of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Gwyneth Paltrow[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rihanna[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Usher[/lastfm], and many others that we do NOT play on Jack FM… thank goodness.

However, on occasion, we DO show our love to Mick and The Stones. As a matter we’ll do that now by sharing with you all a couple of their classics. Enjoy…
