This previous Sunday, the Recording Academy revealed its lengthy list of performers for the upcoming 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. The setlist guarantees appearances from Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Cardi B, DaBaby, Lil Child, Roddy Ricch, Doja Cat, and plenty of different favorites. Regardless of the somewhat prolonged checklist of acts, there was a pair of artists who had been notably upset to not be invited: Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak.
The singers not too long ago joined forces as Silk Sonic and shared their first single, “Leave The Door Open,” which was met with rave critiques. After they weren’t listed among the many Grammy performers, they took issues into their very own fingers. Mars posted a letter to Twitter, which was co-signed by .Paak, which learn partly, “Pricey Grammys, For those who can see it in your hearts to permit two out of labor musicians to carry out at your present, we’d actually admire it. We simply launched a track and will actually use the promotion proper now.” Fortunately for them, the message labored, because the Recording Academy delivered precisely the response they hoped for.
