Arooj Aftab was the first Pakistani to bag a Grammy and now she will be the first to perform at the award show. We are so proud of her achievements as she continues to make us proud.
Aftab revealed on Instagram on Friday that she would be giving a performance at the Grammys premiere celebration, which takes place hours before the main award show. At the premiere ceremony, a number of awards are also declared. She commented, “I can’t wait to perform ‘Udhero Na’ with Anoushka Shankar, my Grammy-nominated tune, live for you at the Grammys.
She noted that on February 5 at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time, her followers may watch her live on live.grammy.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube page.
Shankar replied, “Let’s accomplish this,” while Tara Mahmood and designer HSY described it as “great news” and “wonderful,” respectively. American artist Jessica Betts and Never Have I Ever’s Richa Moorjani both left comments on Aftab’s post.
Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Kim Petras, and Sam Smith will also be performing at this year’s Grammys.
The song “Udhero Na” by Aftab has been nominated for this year’s Best Global Music Performance award. The songs “Gimme Love” by Matt B and Eddy Kenzo, “Last Last” by Burna Boy, “Neva Bow Down” by Rocky Dawuni and Blvk H3ro, and “Bayethe” by Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini, and Nomcebo Zikode have also been nominated in the same category.
Beyonce, the pop icon and front-runner among nominees for a Grammy, will compete for Album Of The Year, the top honor, against Adele, Harry Styles, and other artists. The singer of “Alien Superstar” received nine nominations for the most prestigious awards in music. With 88 nominations overall, she is now tied with her husband Jay-Z for the most nominees in Grammy history.
