Earlier this week, Beyonce served up one of the most epic pregnancy announcements ever, revealing in an artsy Instagram post (and later, an elaborate, ethereal photo shoot shared on her official website) that she is pregnant with not just one baby, but two little Carters-to-be. What better way to celebrate her double joy, then, than to perform – and show off her burgeoning bump – at the Grammys?
Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Queen Bey is set to take the stage at the upcoming awards show, though details of the performance are being kept under wraps for now. ET says that "multiple sources" have confirmed Beyonce's planned appearance, and that the singer, who is nominated for nine trophies at this year's ceremony for her visual album "Lemonade," "was spotted on Thursday rehearsing at a secret location in Los Angeles, California, with a glam squad, camera crew and her team of dancers all in tow."
The superstar used a similar platform to celebrate her pregnancy with her and husband Jay-Z's first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, when she revealed she was expecting while performing at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2011. Though the cat's already out of the bag now, we expect some similar moves from Bey when she hits the stage next weekend.
Beyonce will be in good company among the already-announced group of performers: Adele was recently confirmed to sing, and artists including The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, A Tribe Called Quest, Dave Grohl, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Metallica, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban are also set to take the stage.
The Grammys will air live on CBS on Sunday, February 12.
