Will Beyoncé & Adele Perform at 2017 Grammy Awards? Longtime Grammy Producer Gives Subtle Hint

Beyonce-Adele-Grammy-Performers

If you haven’t done so already (and honestly why haven’t you), you have just over a month to get in “Formation” and say “Hello” from the other side. I know, I know it’s corny, but I just couldn’t help myself.

On to what truly matters — Beyoncé and Adele are both expected to perform at the Grammy Awards in February.

An official announcement of Grammy performers has yet to be named. However, during a roundtable interview with Billboard, Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich hinted that the two pop stars will grace the stage.

Ehrlich, who has produced the telecast since 1980, revealed only three of four artists have declined to perform at the awards show over the years. However, he refused to give their names. Here’s what he did say:

“But I can tell you that Adele and Beyoncé are not two of them. We have every anticipation that both of them will be with us in February.”

Hmmm, sounds like a confirmation to me. It actually would be hard to imagine a 2017 Grammys without Beyoncé or Adele. Beyoncé is the top nominee of the night with nine nominations, while Adele nabbed five. Both are also up for the “big three” awards: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year.

Beyoncé will most certainly give a jaw-dropping must-see iconic performance (like she always does). And though not her fault, Adele can redeem herself from her less-than-stellar 2016 performance of “All I Ask.”

The 59th Grammy Awards will be held February 12th and will air on CBS at 8 p.m.

To prepare yourself, watch these previous Grammy performances by Beyoncé and Adele:

Beyoncé “Flips Out” on Kim Kardashian Over Kanye’s Rants, Returns Kardashian Christmas Party Invitation (Report)

Beyonce-Kim-Kardashian-Feud

Kanye West can kiss any hopes he had of daughter North West ever playing with Blue Ivy Carter anytime soon goodbye. A new report suggests the feud between the Wests and the Carters has grown to epic proportions and the two Hollywood couples will never be friends.

Radar Online is exclusively reporting Beyoncé “flipped out” on Kim Kardashian recently during a phone call. According to the site, Kim called Beyoncé after Kanye was released from the hospital to apologize for his onstage rants on Beyoncé and Jay Z. However, a source says the conversation did not go as Kim intended.

“Beyonce flipped out on Kim when Kim called her to try and soothe tensions after Kanye’s hospitalization. Basically, she told Kim to never, ever, contact her or her husband again and said stuff like she thought that the two of them are made for each other because they are both talentless and pathetic!”

In October, Kanye criticized Beyoncé and Jay Z for not calling or stopping by the house to check on Kim after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. He also revealed that their children had never played with each other, despite their daughters being close in age. He went on another Beyoncé/Jay Z rant in November.

The source says the rants caused friction at home with Kim.

“Kim and Kanye both felt awful and got into it because Kim told Kanye that he had ruined their chances of being friends with Beyonce and Jay.”

Kim has reportedly spent years desperately trying to become friends with Queen Bey, but Beyoncé “kept ignoring her,” says the source. A previous report also claimed that Beyoncé has never liked Kim to begin with, and only tolerated her because of her and Jay’s friendship with Kanye.

Furious with Kanye for making matters worse, the source told Radar that Kim attempted one more time to make amends.

“They wanted to try one last time to make things better, so they mailed Bey and Jay an invite to the Kardashian’s holiday party. The invite was returned to Kim and Kanye’s house with ‘Return To Sender’ written on the envelope!”

To be fair, I don’t think even Kim and Kanye wanted to attend that party.

Beyoncé is never one to hide how she feels, but I highly doubt she would “flip out” on Kim Kardashian, mainly because I don’t see Beyoncé giving this petty situation that much energy. Kim might be desperate to build a friendship, but I can almost guarantee Beyoncé is not hard-pressed over what Kim or Kanye does.

Did Jennifer Hudson Clap Back at Tina Knowles Lawson’s Accidental Shady Instagram Comment “Like?”

Tina-Knowles-Lawson-Jennifer-Hudson-Shade

The first celebrity feud of 2017 may have just been sparked by an “accidental” like and a cryptic social media response.

Tina Knowles Lawson recently announced she is taking a break from social media after facing heavy backlash for “liking” a negative comment about Jennifer Hudson. Days later, Hudson posted a possible clapback to Miss Tina’s shade. Here’s how it all went down.

Last week, Lawson was on Instagram scrolling through videos of her daughter, Beyoncé, performing. She came across a vid of Beyoncé and Hudson performing a song from Dreamgirls at the 2007 Oscars. However, social media quickly noticed Lawson had “liked” a comment that stated “Jhud sounds horrible.”

Many assumed Miss Tina was throwing shade at Hudson. However, Lawson took to her own Instagram account on Wednesday (Dec. 29) to address “evil mean people” and clear up all the confusion. She explained she was unaware of the mistake and assured Hudson and everyone else that she would never say or condone any negativity.

“I am writing this commentary for Jennifer Hudson and not for the evil mean people that are making this into a social media ugly thing. I’ve known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!

“…I am not a hater and I am not negative about people so to Jennifer for my mistake of accidentally touching it which I don’t remember doing I really apologize I totally love and Admire you”

She even added Beyoncé and Solange had warned her about social media and were “worried” that she “might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites.” The lesson-learned moment has caused her to take a step back from social media for a while.

Despite Lawson’s apology for what seems to be a genuine slip of the finger, did Hudson clapback with a post of her own? Heading into 2017, Hudson posted cryptic message on Instagram on Friday (Dec. 30) of her New Year’s resolution.

It’s unclear what sparked Hudson’s post, but many speculated it was a passive response to Lawson’s social media gaffe. Though the timing is interesting, it could also very well just be a coincidence.

Here is the clip that has caused all of the uproar:

This also isn’t the first time Miss Tina has found herself in a battle with social media. Back in June, she blasted those on social media who accused her of lying after she accepted an award on Beyoncé’s behalf at the BET Awards.

Queen Bey opened the show with a surprise performance and quickly left the venue afterwards. Lawson explained Beyoncé had a performance in Europe to get to, but fans knew the performance wasn’t until a few days later.

Mariah Carey’s Team Accuses Dick Clark Productions of Sabotage After Disastrous Lip Sync New Year’s Eve Performance

Mariah-Carey-New-Year's-Sabotage

Happy New Year, Mariah! The diva of our generation needs all of the love she can get after her disastrous performance on live television just moments before the ball dropped in NYC to ring in 2017.

Mariah Carey performed during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, but unfortunately, everything that could go wrong, did! The singer was supposed to perform “Auld Lang Syne” and her hits “Emotions” and “We Belong Together” but all three songs were an epic lip sync fail.

According to TMZ, Mariah and her team are accusing Dick Clark Productions of “sabotage.”

Short story — Mariah’s team believe there are too many coincidences and too many warnings … they say it was sabotage “so they could get Mariah drama.” We know Mariah’s people fired off an email to an Exec at Dick Clark Productions, saying, “This is sabotage.”

The site claims Mariah repeatedly complained to production that she was having difficulty hearing her in-ear monitors. An hour before she was scheduled to take the stage, she first alerted production of the issue after an interview with Seacrest. She even told the host on-air, “I’m having trouble hearing you.”

Production assured her team the problem would be fixed by switching her earpieces to a different frequency. However, 6 minutes before she hit the stage she was still having issues and even went to the stage early to test everything out. Mariah’s mic-pack battery was also dead and changed during this time.

Mariah was forced to begin her performance knowing her inner ear monitors weren’t working properly. Once onstage, she also noticed the prompter, which displays the lyrics, was not working. Mariah’s team says she tried to hear the music on her own, but the massive Times Square audience was too overpowering.

Was it sabotage? I can’t really say. The only thing I know for sure is that this would never happen to Beyoncé!

After the performance — if you can even call it that — and the social media clowning session that followed, Mariah tweeted “sh*t happens.”

Here is the cringe-worthy performance from start to finish:
