Miley Cyrus to perform ‘Flowers’ at Grammy Awards
LOS ANGELES — Singer Miley Cyrus, who is up for six awards this time around at the Grammy Awards, is expected to perform her smash ‘Flowers’ at the ceremony.
Cyrus was in Los Angeles Friday afternoon at the Crypto.com Arena to rehearse for the big show.
A source close to the situation described the rehearsal as “blow-you-away good” and that Cyrus is in fine vocal form. It’s believed that the Grammy appearance will be the first time she has performed the tune on TV since its release in January 2023, reports Variety.
‘Flowers’, an uptempo anthem of empowerment, is up for Song of the Year and Record of the Year honors. Variety has pegged it as the likely winner in the Record of the Year heat.
Cyrus’ ‘Endless Summer Vacation’, the album that delivered ‘Flowers’, is a contender for Album of the Year. She’s facing stiff competition in that category from Taylor Swift’s ‘Midnights’, among others.
Cyrus has racked up eight total career Grammy nominations since the ‘Hannah Montana’ child star shifted her focus from acting to music in the late 2000s. But she has yet to take home a gramophone trophy.
‘Flowers’ is also up for best pop solo performance while ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ is nominated for best pop vocal album. Cyrus’ sixth nom came for best pop duo/vocal performance for ‘Thousand Miles’, her collaboration with Brandi Carlile.
Cyrus joins the list of Grammy telecast performers that includes SZA, Joni Mitchell, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs.
