In addition to selecting his own “Adorn” to accompany tonight’s “Washington Heights” episode, Miguel’s got a few other Los Angeles-based artists on the roster, too, including Thundercat’s “Is It Love?” and Dom Kennedy’s “My Type of Party.” “What I really wanted to accomplish with this opportunity is to bridge the gap — I thought it would be a good juxtaposition to take young, hungry kids from New York and help tell their stories with young, hungry kids from L.A.,” said Miguel in a chat with the show’s star, JP “Audubon” Perez. “What I really appreciate about this show and this story is that you get to connect on an emotional level because you can identify with what’s driving you guys. You can relate to that. That’s what music’s really doing, is connecting people.”
R&B singer Miguel says his goal with his second album, the sumptuous Kaleidoscope Dream, was to prove that he was a real artist. His 2010 debut, All I Want Is You, had shown he could craft a hit record, but for its 2012 follow-up, he wanted to create a sound that didn’t cling to the usual genre formulas.
With just days to go until Sunday’s ceremony, the Grammys are adding more performers to the already star-studded lineup. Miguel will hit the stage with Wiz Khalifa at the 55th annual awards.
The two will likely perform the remix to Miguel’s Grammy-nominated single “Adorn” during the live broadcast from the Staples Center in L.A. on Sunday, February 10, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
Miguel is nominated for five awards including Song of the Year for “Adorn” and Best Urban Contemporary Album for his sophomore set Kaleidoscope Dream.
