Juanes won’t just be attending this year’s Grammy Awards as a nominee; he’s also a scheduled performer…
The 40-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter will perform at Sunday’s Grammy Awards (February 10) ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to Universal Music, his record label.
Juanes, nominated for a gilded gramophone from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in the Best Latin Pop Album category for Juanes MTV Unplugged Deluxe Edition, will join a list of performers that includies Bruno Mars, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys.
Juanes, the winner of last year’s Latin Grammy for Album of the Year for the same project, which was recorded in early 2012 before a live audience at the New World Symphony Center in Miami, is competing against Ricardo Arjona, Fonseca, Kany Garcia and Jesse & Joy for the prize.
In all, Juanes – who will be releasing his memoir in April – has earned 19 Latin Grammys and one Grammy award during his career.
