The Grammy Awards are the music industry's biggest night. It boasts the most phenomenal lineup of performances of the year. This is your guide to the 10 top performances to watch for when the show kicks off at 8 p.m. ET February 13, 2011 on CBS.
10. Rihanna and Drake
9. Mick Jagger and Rafael Saadiq
Mick Jagger will take the stage in a tribute to soul legend Solomon Burke. The Solomon Burke tribute is part of the Grammys usual In Memoriam salute to musicians who have passed in the past year. Mick Jagger has only appeared on the Grammy Awards show one time before in a live link from London in 1986 when the Rolling Stones received a lifetime achievement award. This will be his first time performing live at the Grammys.
8. Justin Bieber, Usher, and Jaden Smith
7. B.o.B., Bruno Mars, and Janelle Monae
6. Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, and More In Tribute To Aretha Franklin
A star-studded female group consisting of Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, and Martina McBride will perform some of Aretha Franklin's biggest hit songs as a "Valentine" and "get well card" to the Queen of Soul. This performance has drawn particularly strong interest as the first appearance by Christina Aguilera after she notoriously messed up the lyrics for the national anthem at the Super Bowl.
5. Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, and Avett Brothers Salute Acoustic Music
Ten time Grammy winner and folk rock living legend Bob Dylan will join critically acclaimed bands Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers to perform a salute to acoustic music. It will be fascinating to see if we actually witness Bob Dylan strumming an acoustic guitar.
4. Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand reportedly has severe stage fright when it comes to performing live. That makes it an even more special occurrence that she, one of the top female recording artists of all time, will perform on the Grammy stage. She is the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year.
3. Cee Lo Green, Gwyneth Paltrow and the Jim Henson Puppets
The Jim Henson Puppets, or otherwise known as Muppets, will perform as the backing band when Cee Lo Green takes the Grammy stage to sing his hit "F**k You!" which is nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Joining him will be Gwyneth Paltrow who notably sang the song last year on an episode of Glee.
2. Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Adam Levine of Maroon 5
Dr. Dre has not performed live on television for more than 10 years, and he has never taken the Grammy stage before. It is likely to be a very emotional event when he joins his protege Eminem to presumably perform their current hit "I Need a Doctor." Maroon 5's lead vocalist Adam Levine will join them to take the singing parts. The song's subject matter is Eminem's pleading with his mentor to return to his work.
