Billy Joel, the iconic singer and songwriter, is set to grace the stage at the 66th annual Grammy Awards, as confirmed by the Recording Academy. Joel, a five-time Grammy winner and recipient of the Grammy Legend Award, will make a highly anticipated return as a performer at the upcoming ceremony on February 4.

Joel first took the Grammy stage in 1988, delivering a memorable rendition of “New York State Of Mind.”

Now, decades later, he joins a star-studded lineup that includes Burna Boy, Luke Combs, Travis Scott, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Olivia Rodrigo.

The announcement of Joel’s performance comes hot on the heels of his revelation about the release of “Turn the Lights Back On,” his first new single in 17 years. Collaborating with producer Freddy Wexler, known for his work with a diverse range of artists from Ariana Grande to Kanye West, Joel co-wrote the track. Additional contributions to the song come from Wayne Hector (Nicki Minaj, One Direction) and Arthur Bacon.

While Joel’s last single, “All My Life,” was released as a one-off in 2007, he has remained a consistent presence on the performance circuit. Notably, he has held numerous residencies at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Last July, Joel announced that his residency at the iconic venue would conclude in July 2024, marking his 100th performance in the series.

Joel’s return to the stage adds an extra layer of excitement to an already star-studded event. The 74-year-old artist, known for his timeless hits, continues to captivate audiences with his enduring musical legacy.
