Madonna is the first performer announced for the upcoming 57th Grammy Awards, which will air Feb. 8, 2015 on CBS.
It will mark the fifth time she has taken the Grammy stage. The seven-time Grammy Award winner last performed on the show just a year ago, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
On Jan. 12, the Queen of Pop shared an image to her social media accounts of a Grammy Award wrapped in now-familiar black wire (as seen on the cover of her upcoming Rebel Heart album and many of her Instagram posts) with the caption: “Rebel Hearts see you Feb 8th @theGRAMMYs.” (The Grammy Awards’ official Twitter account re-Tweeted the news shortly afterwards.) Madonna first hinted at a Grammy Awards performance in a December interview with Billboard, saying that it was “possibly something that’s gonna happen.”
Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, confirmed to Billboard that the diva will indeed be performing on the show (Some may have wondered if Madonna’s vaguely-worded Tweet suggested that she was simply going to appear on the show, rather than perform).
The 57th Grammy Awards comes two days before Madonna’s new single, “Living For Love,” will officially begin its promotion to U.S. radio. It’s the lead track from the Rebel Heart album, which will be released on March 10 through Interscope Records.
