From a same-sex kissing pop tart to a Caribbean-loving country star, this year’s Grammy performers will be an eclectic bunch.
“As an artist and a songwriter … you always dream about being nominated for a Grammy,” Nick Jonas said of being nominated with his brothers in the best new artist category. “And if we do win – wow, that would be amazing.”
CBS will broadcast the ceremony live from Los Angeles’s Staples Center on Feb. 8.
