Rihanna & Drake, Cee Lo & Gwyneth Paltrow to Duet at Grammys

(Billboard) Rihanna and Drake will perform together at the Grammy Awards, while Cee Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow will team up for their own duet with the Jim Henson Company Puppets, it was announced late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning (Feb. 2).

Rihanna and Drake’s duet was announced via the official Grammy Twitter account. “OFFICIAL & for our fans first: @Rihanna to perform w/ Drake (@drakkardnoir) at 53rd GRAMMYs!” reads the post. No word yet on what they’ll perform, but it’s likely to be their collaboration “What’s My Name?”, the No. 1 hit from Rihanna’s “Loud” album. The pop starunveiled the provocative music video for her next single, “S&M,” just a day ago.

For Cee Lo Green and Paltrow, the performance finally brings the two together for a musical collaboration after Paltrow covered the former’s hit single, “F**k You” (nominated for record and song of the year), on “Glee.” Paltrow and Cee Lo were expected to perform the song (or its censored version, “Forget You”) in January when the two appeared on “Saturday Night Live” on the same date, but that performance never materialized (likely because plans to duet on the far-larger Grammy stage were in the works).

Rihanna, Drake, Cee Lo and Paltrow join an already-lofty roster of Grammy performers, including Lady Gaga — who confirmed she’ll perform her new single “Born This Way” at the Feb. 13 ceremony — and Justin Bieber, who will perform “Never Say Never” with Usher and Jaden Smith. Bruno Mars will be joined onstage by B.o.B. and Janelle Monae for a “rare, never before seen presentation,” and Eminem, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum, Arcade Fire and Muse will also perform.
