Bon Jovi have been added to this year’s slate of Grammy night performers, marking the first time the New Jersey rockers have ever played “Music’s Biggest Night.” While Jon Bon Jovi and Co. were nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals for “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” they won’t be playing that song at the ceremony. Instead, to look back at a catalog that’s never before made it to the Grammy stage, producers are letting Bon Jovi fans vote on which one of the band’s biggest hits they’ll perform at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on January 31st, the Grammy Website announced.
Fans will have a choice of six Jovi classics at the polls: “Bed of Roses,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Always,” “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “It’s My Life” and “Have a Nice Day.” Head over to CBS’ Grammy page to cast your vote. On January 24th, voting will briefly close and the six songs will be whittled down to three finalists. Voting will then once again continue up until the moments before Bon Jovi takes the stage at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards.
As Rolling Stone previously reported, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Dave Matthews Band and Black Eyed Peas — all five of the Album of the Year nominees — will perform at the ceremony. Green Day, Pink, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum and Maxwell will also take the stage at the 52nd annual Grammys.
