Beck, members of Nirvana cover David Bowie at pre-Grammys party
One night before the Grammy Awards, producer Clive Davis threw his annual pre-Grammys gala, featuring performances from artists like Fetty Wap, Jack Antonoff, Adam Lambert, Barry Manilow, and Carly Simon. But one of the most memorable performances came at the very beginning of the show, with Beck joining members of Nirvana — Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear — in a cover of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World.”
Nirvana famously covered “The Man Who Sold The World” in 1994 on MTV Unplugged, and for Sunday’s performance, Beck stepped in on guitar and vocals. At Monday night’s Grammys, Lady Gaga is set to perform a tribute to the late Bowie.
The Grammys air live Monday from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. See the full list of nominees here.
