“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” said Neil Portnow, the Recording Academy’s president and CEO. “While each possessed a distinct style and sound, they were both adored by audiences worldwide. The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community.”

One special performance that can be unveiled, though, is the unlikely pairing of Super Bowl Halftime Show headliner Lady Gaga and Metallica.
