Grammy Family...It's Official: Jay Z & Beyoncé to Grace Grammy Stage..."Drunk In Love"..."On The Run (Part ll)" and a Little "Tom Ford" Would Be Nice...Maybe Throw in a Little "Holy Grail" Too...

Jay & B are coming!!! 

Billboard reported today that the Carters will be performing at this Sunday's, 56th annual Grammy Awards:
After some speculation last week, Beyoncé has been confirmed to be taking the GRAMMY Awards stage on Sunday night (Jan. 26), alongside hubby Jay Z.
The appearance was confirmed in a commercial that aired on CBS on Sunday (Jan. 19), listing the married couple among the performers of the upcoming ceremony. 

The GRAMMY Awards has yet to announce the latest lineup additions, and whether or not Bey and Jay will collaborate onstage. Although Jay Z pops up on his wife's latest hit single, "Drunk In Love," the rapper is also entering the upcoming GRAMMY Awards with nine nominations, including Best Rap Album for last year's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail." Beyoncé's upcoming GRAMMY moment will mark the singer's first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Current sales for "Beyoncé" stand at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  (Source:  Billboard)
