I know you may have missed this in your daily perusal of CBS’s website, but apparently there’s been a a thing going on there for like the past six days called “The Gig of a Lifetime” that promises to give “aspiring musicians across the country the chance to perform in front of a live audience during GRAMMY Live, three days of live coverage and events leading up to Music’s Biggest Night.” Yeah, totally! THIS is who won last year, and OBVIOUSLY it changed all of our fucking lives so radically that we can’t even remember it happening.
But yo, this year, we just wanted to give some of you a quick heads-up that one of the candidates this year is actually Lil B! And because we weren’t paying any attention to CBS or the Grammys, THERE’S ONLY A DAY LEFT TO VOTE FOR HIM. Voting takes place on some kind of future-y Facebook app thing, after which, WHEN he gets through the “Pacific Region” prelim, he’ll advance to the final round, which runs from January 17 -24. His obvious victory will be announced on January 29, and after that, we can all watch the part of the Grammys where he’s granted “a live performance in front of an audience and webcast to fans around the globe” when they air on February 10 and bathe in the sheer ridiculousness of him being up there.
For a complete list of who’s performing at this year’s Grammys, go fuck yourself.
