Rihanna And Coldplay To Perform 'Bonkers' Duet At Grammys
Rihanna and Coldplay are set to bring their studio collaboration 'Princess Of China' to the live arena after it was revealed the British group and pop star would come together as part of the 54th Grammy Awards to be held on February 12th. Eyebrows were raised when the two camps confirmed that they'd written a track together back in September of last year, with the resultant 'Princess Of China' going on to be one of the most pop-orientated numbers on Chris Martin and co's fifth studio album 'Mylo Xyloto,' and also gaining a single release. Charting well in America, reaching 20 in the US Billboard Top 100 on its release in November, the clamour has since been to see them perform it live together.
Now Rihanna has confirmed that she and Coldplay will indeed be performing the track live at the forthcoming Grammy's, with The Press Association saying she confirmed the news by tweet, saying "My friends Coldplay and I will be sharing the stage for this year's annual Grammy Awards - bonkers," the star also went on to express how "great" the news was.
The news comes as anticipation ahead of the event starts to pick up, perennial host of the nominations show, LL Cool J will be the first host of the awards ceremony since Queen Latifah in 2005 whilst Bruno Mars, The Foo Fighters and Kelly Clarkson are among those scheduled to perform as well.
