Just yesterday, the Grammys announced a special homage to Dolly Parton, to be performed by Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, and Little Big Town, as well as a medley act comprised of Young Thug, J Balvin, and Camila Cabello. The successive waves of recruit follow an initial roundup of Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Diana Ross, done to cascading effect to ensure a suspension of interest.
As promised, Alicia Keys will host the event taking place on February 10, and help usher in a celebration of Aretha Franklin's storybook career in the process - alongside two songstresses of note: Gospel great Yolanda Adams and Fantasia Barrino. Keep it locked for any further additions.
