See original story below.
There's already an extensive list of performers scheduled to appear at the 2019 Grammys, but that list just got a whole lot bigger. In a series of since deleted tweets, the Recording Academy revealed that Travis Scott, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, and St. Vincent will be joining the extensive lineup of performers.
The Academy revealed the news on Twitter early Wednesday, but they later scrubbed the tweets and the pages detailing the performances on their official website. It's worth noting that St. Vincent and Dua Lipa will be performing together, as will a number of the already confirmed acts. These performers will likely be joining the already announced list of acts set to play at the Grammys, which includes Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Camila Cabello, J Balvin, Young Thug, Cardi B, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, and Diana Ross among others.
The Grammys will also include a special performance in honor of Motown's 60th anniversary this year, and for some reason Jennifer Lopez was selected to headline the celebration. Understandably, people were confused with the decision, but at least the rest of the performances scheduled for the Grammys this year sound appealing. One person we know definitely won't be turning up, however, is Ariana Grande, who reportedly clashed with producers over her potentially performing her No. 1 single "7 Rings" at the ceremony.
