One of the coolest things about the Grammy Awards is the show’s ability to bring some unique and unexpected collaborations to its stage. It was announced on Tuesday that former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will be performing together at this year’s ceremony, which is only the most buzzworthy of a long list of collaborations that are sure to make for an interesting evening on Music’s Biggest Night. The 56th annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, January 26 in Los Angeles.
8. Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, & Keith Urban
This country mashup will be worth watching to see newcomer Kacey Musgraves blow pop tart Taylor Swift out of the water. Musgraves is nominated for Best New Artist, Best Country Album, and has two entries in the Best Country Song Category from her debut album “Same Trailer, Different Park.” Musgraves’ lyrics are smart, funny, and gritty — she has staying power on the grounds of her music alone, no incessant tabloid coverage of her relationships necessary.
