    Not that I’m not happy but… I mean Weezy is an obvious choice to perform this year but Drake’s been quite for a minute. Other than “I’m On One” I wonder what he is going to perform. Matter a fact Alicia Keys has been quite for a minute too I wonder what she is going to even perform.

    @Shade, It’s because Alicia Keys is celebrating the 10 year release of her debut album ” Songs in A Minor” so i’m pretty sure she will perform a medley of hits from that album.

    Not at all enthused about Lil Wayne but hoping that Drake has upped his performance game because although I like his music, he looks awkward live.
