Rumors are flying around the internet that Britney Spears will appear on the Grammys. As you know, Spears released “Hold It Against Me,” the first single, to her March album yesterday and the world exploded. Well, not quite, but the song, which we reviewed here, shot to the top of iTunes download chart and set records for the number of radio spins, according to her label, Jive Records. In its first day, the song had close to 600 plays at Top 40 stations, thanks to some outlets, like LA’s KIIS, which debuted the track, banging it 18 times.
Let the rumors fly says the Recording Academy, The folks who put on the Grammys. They coyly told Hitfix, when asked about Spears’ possible appearance, “Until a press release is issued by The Recording Academy, there are no performers or presenters confirmed.” When asked when the Academy will start putting out press releases about performers, the answer was “shortly.” Uh, thanks.
