Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Campaign Grammys To Let Their Band Silk Sonic Perform

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak really want to perform at the Grammys.

On Sunday, the award show announced its list of presenters and performers for the March 14 broadcast, but the two artists noticed a conspicuous absence: themselves.

.Paak first called attention on Twitter to the fact that his band with Mars, Silk Sonic, was not included among the list of performers unveiled by the Grammys.

Mars corrected him, pointing out that was the list of presenters, sharing with him the list of performers, only for .Paak to point out Silk Sonic wasn’t included there, either.

That prompted Mars to issue a statement calling on the Grammys to allow Silk Sonic to perform during the broadcast.

Mars and .Paak soon had Silk Sonic trending on Twitter, but that elicited no response from the Grammys, though .Paak did have the idea of offering his services as a drummer to performers BTS.

Feeling jilted, Mars joked, “I hope you & BTS go on to do great things,” to which .Paak responded, “Don’t give up hope!”
