Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson Set to Perform Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Party

THR’s Robert Friedman reports that Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson are set to perform at Clive Davis’ annual Pre-Grammy Party Saturday night (Jan 29) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Ballwroom in Los Angeles.

What I can tell you exclusively is that Mary J. Blige as well as the Black Eyed Peas will perform for Universal Music’s Doug Morris, who’s being honored for his Lifetime Achievement by the Grammys at this party. Morris, like Clive, is one of the last real music men. His UMG is a towering success.

Also set for performances are Jennifer Hudson, Kesha, and Carrie Underwood, and Maxwell.

Also Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas are set to perform their new cover version of Eric Clapton’s “Sunshine of Your Love” from Santana’s forthcoming album of covers.

Clive’s party became an official part of the Grammy festivities last year. But even in its un-official capacity, it was one of the go-to events of the Grammy weekend. Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry and Fantasia have performed at Clive’s party in the past.

The Grammy Awards will air Sunday at 8 pm on CBS. Carrie and Jennifer will be part of a special tribute to Michael Jackson. Carrie, Kelly Clarkson, Mandisa, Ruben Studdard and Trenyce are all nominated for awards.
