Mick Jagger to perform live at the Grammy Awards


The “53rd Annual Grammy Awards” will air Sunday, February 13th on CBS. Believe it or not, the broadcast will feature the first ever live performance on the Grammy stage by Mick Jagger.

Jagger will be accompanied by soul singer Saadiq and his band in honor one of his longtime idols, recently deceased Grammy winner Solomon Burke. Jagger has appeared only once before on the Grammy telecast. But that appearance with the Rolling Stones in 1986 was via satellite from London. At that time Eric Clapton presented the Stones with The Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award.
