Don’t worry, kiddos — Papa Sting is here to show you how it’s done.
The Recording Academy has announced that the 61-year-old Sting with be joining Rihanna and Bruno Mars on stage for a performance at the Grammys this Sunday.
With 16 trophies of his own at home, Sting is no stranger to the Grammys — he won his first back in 1980, when he was in the Police and Rihanna and Bruno Mars were not even people yet. (Although, judging by Mars’ recent singles, the age gap hasn’t limited Sting’s influence.)
Kelly Clarkson will be performing separately on Grammy night as well, the Academy announced, while Beyoncé, Prince, Hunter Hayes, Jennifer Lopez, and Pauley Perrette were confirmed as presenters.
This new crop of names joins the previously announced roster of eminent performers, including: Frank Ocean, the Black Keys, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, Mumford & Sons, fun., Jack White, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Elton John, and Ed Sheeran.
