Confirmed: Katy Perry to Perform “By the Grace of God” at Grammys

Calling it the “final” performance announcement for this weekend’s Grammy Awards ceremony, the Recording Academy confirmed rumors that Katy Perry will be singing at the show.

According to the release, Perry will sing “By the Grace of God” at “Music’s Biggest Night.” The 57th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony airs at 8PM ET on CBS this Sunday.

Perry is up for two awards: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Dark Horse” and Best Pop Vocal Album for “Prism.”

While the academy says Perry is the “final artist” set for the performance lineup, at least one more name is set to perform on the show. Common, who is performing his Oscar-nominated “Glory” with John Legend, says Beyonce will deliver “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” as an introduction to the duet.

Lang Lang, whom CBS says will cover one of the year’s “infectious songs,” says that his performance will be a collaborative one. It is unclear whether that collaboration will involve a previously confirmed performer (such as Pharrell, whose “Happy” was certainly one of the year’s most infectious songs) or a surprise guest.

Per the Academy, “Previously announced performers are GRAMMY-winning band AC/DC; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Beck; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Tony Bennett; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Mary J. Blige; nominee Eric Church; nominee Brandy Clark; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Common; nominee Ariana Grande; GRAMMY winner Herbie Hancock; nominee Hozier; nominee Jessie J; GRAMMY winner Tom Jones; 20-time Latin GRAMMY winner and current nominee Juanes; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Lady Gaga; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Miranda Lambert; internationally acclaimed pianist and GRAMMY Cultural Ambassador To China Lang Lang; GRAMMY winner and current nominee John Legend; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Annie Lennox; GRAMMY winner Adam Levine; the legendary Jeff Lynne’s ELO; GRAMMY winner Madonna; GRAMMY winner Paul McCartney; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Chris Martin; GRAMMY winner John Mayer; GRAMMY winner Questlove; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Rihanna; nominee Ed Sheeran; nominee Sia; nominee Sam Smith; GRAMMY winner Gwen Stefani; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Usher; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Kanye West; GRAMMY winner and current nominee Pharrell Williams; and GRAMMY winner Dwight Yoakam. Entertainment icon and two-time GRAMMY winner LL Cool J returns as host.”
