Miguel to Perform Michael Jackson ‘Off the Wall’ Tribute at 2016 Grammy Awards
R&B crooner Miguel has been tapped to perform at the 2016 Grammy Awards. The Wildheart creator will sing a special tribute to the late Michael Jackson in memory of his 1979 breakthrough album, Off the Wall.
To help promote the Feb. 26 reissue of MJ’s Off the Wall commemorative package, which will include Spike Lee’s documentary on the album, Miguel will perform the LP track, “She’s Out of My Life.” Backing the singer will be keyboardist Greg Phillinganes who originally played on the song.
This will be a big night for Miguel also as he’s up for two awards including Best R&B Song for “Coffee.”
The Grammy Awards will be stacked with tributes including ones for Lionel Richie and the late David Bowie and B.B. King. (What, no Maurice White tribute?)
CBS will air the 2016 Grammy Awards live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday (Feb. 15) at 8PM ET.
