According to Billboard, the songstress is expected to debut a never-before-heard single on Friday. The track, titled “Chained to the Rhythm” features Skip Marley. With new music on the way, we can’t help but assume she will be performing her latest song at the award show.
Perry joins a variety of music’s greatest talents set to perform. Those artists include Chance the Rapper, Adele, Bruno Mars, Maren Morris, Alicia Keys, The Weeknd, John Legend, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. First-time nominee Kelsea Ballerini was also added the lineup on Monday.
Beyoncé, who leads the show with a total of nine nominations, will be taking the stage as well, just weeks after announcing she is pregnant with twins.
The 59th annual Grammy Awards will be hosted by late night comedian James Corden. The annual event airs at 8 p.m. on CBS.
