EXCLUSIVE: Justin Bieber Is Ready to Rock the GRAMMY Stage -- Details on His Mashup Medley and Special Guests!
By Meredith B. Kile
Justin Bieber is taking the stage at Monday’s GRAMMY Awards, and ET has the exclusive details on his anticipated performance.
A source inside GRAMMY rehearsals revealed to ET that Bieber will kick off his performance singing an acoustic version of his single “Love Yourself,” similar to his performance of the song during Ellen’s “Justin Bieber Week” in November.
The performance will then transition to a grungy, “superband” version of “Where Are Ü Now,” featuring the song’s producers, DJs Skrillex and Diplo, on guitar and keys, respectively. The song, which was featured as a bonus track on Bieber’s latest album, Purpose, was originally created as part of the DJs’ collaborative project, Jack Ü.
The song is nominated for Best Dance Recording at this year’s GRAMMYs, marking Bieber’s third career nomination. The 21-year-old superstar has never won a golden megaphone, after famously losing Best New Artist to Esperanza Spalding in 2011.
