The official Twitter for the Grammy Awards updated their performance roster early this morning with the likes of Grammy regulars John Mayer, Keith Urban, Stevie Wonder, and Neil Diamond. There was one big surprise on their list, however: M.I.A.
It has been previously reported that M.I.A. is due to give birth on February 8, the exact same day of the Grammys, but news that she is set to perform on the television broadcast that day as well is a bit strange. It is possible the posting from the Grammy Awards made an error and as Rolling Stone notes, “Tentative isn’t even the word to describe the very-pregnant M.I.A.’s planned performance.”
M.I.A. is nominated for Record of the Year for her song “Paper Planes.” If she does indeed perform, 9 months pregnant to the date, this year’s Grammy Awards is sizing up to be an interesting show. Not to mention Radiohead will be doing a rare live award show performance for the broadcast.
