Whos Performing 2016 Grammys
The very first performers announced for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards -- which airs tonight (February 15) on CBS -- were Adele, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Little Big Town. That was all the way back in January, which, sure, wasn't really that long ago. But it also kinda was.
Back then, Kanye West's new album didn't even have a title, or at least not the title it ended up taking . But hey, now The Life of Pablo is out, sort of, so we can all listen to it while we wait for the Grammys to start up.
Kanye West won't be performing at the Grammys tonight, as far as we know. But here's who will be.
