Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood to Perform at Grammys

Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban will perform at this year's Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday. Metallica are up for one award at this year's Grammys, with their "Hardwired" nominated for Best Rock Song. The band promised it has "something very unique and special planned for this celebratory night," but didn't go into further details. On the Metallica site, the band said, "First, it was a total honor to be nominated, but now this?!!? We’re beyond excited that we have been invited to perform on the 59th annual Grammy Awards telecast ... It's been three years since we were lucky enough to participate in the awards show when we last performed with world-renowned Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang and we’re thrilled to be asked back."
