Coldplay and Paul McCartney to Perform at 54th Grammy Awards

Today the Academy announced Grammy nominees Coldplay, Paul McCartney and Rihanna have been added to the 54th Grammy Awards performance list.

Four-time Grammy winner Rihanna and seven-time Grammy winners Coldplay will perform together live and for the first time. McCartney, who has 14 Grammys of his own and is 2012’s MusiCares Person of the Year, is nominated for Best Historical Album for the reissue of his 1973 album Band On The Run.

As we previously reported, other 2012 performers include Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

What we do know is that any performance by Sir Paul, no matter his age, the location of said performance or occasion, will be one we will tune in for.

The Grammys take place live at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 12 and air on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
