Sia to face the music at Grammys
NOT only will Australia’s notoriously publicity-shy Sia Furler be attending Monday’s 57th Annual Grammy Awards, she’ll be centre stage.
There had been talk the multi-platinum-selling Adelaide artist known simply as Sia would skip the event — despite four nominations, including the elite song and record of the year categories. But Grammy organisers yester- day announced Sia would perform at music’s biggest awards night in Los Angeles.
It doesn’t mean the audience will see Sia’s face.
The artist is known for wearing a brown paper bag on her head for photo shoots and performing with her back to the crowd.
It could be a big night for the Australian music industry, with rapper Iggy Azalea also up for four Grammys and country rocker Keith Urban nominated for two.
Azalea and Sia will battle for record of the year. Azalea is nominated for Fancy, her global hit with Charli XCX. Sia is up for Chandelier, while the other nominees in the category are Sam Smith’s Stay With Me, Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off and Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass.
