Biting His Nails? Frank Ocean Admits to Being Very Nervous Ahead of Grammy Awards
Frank Ocean appeared at the pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles on Friday, where he admitted to being incredibly nervous about the coming awards themselves, Billboard reports.
Performing a 6 song set at the Ace Museum in Los Angeles, Frank Ocean told the audience: "So it's officially Grammy weekend, which is probably not a big deal for everyone... But it makes me nervous as f**k." With 6 nominations including for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist Ocean's got nothing to be nervous about. Especially with Channel Orange being such a strong contender.
Esteemed guests to the show included Busy Phillipps, Alan Cummings, Ashley Benson and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, and were all equal to the average joes in the audience, as they were treated to renditions of "Crack Rock," "Monks", "American Wedding", "Sierra Leone," "Thinkin' Bout You," and "Pyramids."
A DJ set from M83 preceded and succeeded Ocean's performance providing a wide range of music to the night. The Grammy Awards ceremony is to be held tonight, celebrating the best of pop, hip-hop, R&B and rock music from across the western hemisphere. It'll prove to be an exciting event, not least because of all the awards to be won, but also because of the incredible performances that have been promised including Justin Timberlake, and a duet between Brits Elton John and Ed Sheeran.
