Paul McCartney is up for two awards while Ringo Starr is set for his maiden performance at the Grammys.

FORMER Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will perform at the Grammys later this month, as the legendary group is given a lifetime achievement award, organisers said on Tuesday.

It was not immediately known what the duo will play at the ceremony, music’s biggest honours, on Jan 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

But their performance will provide a colourful warm-up for the special Beatles tribute show organised by the Recording Academy on the night after the Grammys.

The event – to be televised on Feb 9, exactly 50 years after the group’s iconic The Ed Sullivan Show appearance – will feature a parade of top talent performing the Fab Four’s hits.

At the Grammys, McCartney, 71, is up for two awards as a solo artiste: best rock song for Cut Me Some Slack and for best music film for Live Kisses.

While McCartney has sung before on the Grammys stage, it will be a first for 73-year-old Starr, according to the Academy.

Among the nominated artistes scheduled to perform are rappers Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, country’s Keith Urban, pop star Taylor Swift and French electropop duo Daft Punk. – AFP Relaxnews
