In the wake of the stunning success of Britney Spears‘s just-released new single Hold It Against Me this week, a new rumor started to go around yesterday that claims that our dear Britney will be performing during the 2011 Grammy Awards next month. According to People magazine, Britney will NOT be performing at the show and her own people have issued a statement saying that any news not officially released by them is merely “rumor”. But, I have it on good authority that plans are in the works to get Britney to perform during the awards show so … who to believe?
Don’t hold it against her – but Britney Spears isn’t performing at this year’s Grammy Awards, her label tells PEOPLE. Contrary to reports online Tuesday, the pop star, 29, who just released her new single, “Hold It Against Me,” which already rose to No. 1 on iTunes charts, has no plans to sing live on the Feb. 13 telecast. Adds a source: “I really doubt it.” A full list of Grammy presenters and performers is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The awards show will air live from L.A.’s Staples Center on CBS.
It is possible that these denials are true … for now. I have it on very good authority that the Grammy folks are working to make the Britney performance happen … so mebbe the deal isn’t set yet and, therefore, her record label can say that she is not performing knowing full well that she will once they get a deal in place. From what I’m hearing about plans for her performance, it would be an epic performance. But, again, without knowing anything official … it’s just more rumor in the wind. I would welcome any live awards show performance from our dear Britney … so I’m gonna keep my fingers and toes crossed that Britney will end up performing on the Grammy Awards next month. What do y’all think … will she or won’t she perform?
