Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Ask Grammys to Let Silk Sonic Perform

He promised that Silk Sonic would follow all safety protocols and even joked that they’d be willing to audition for the spot.

“We haven’t been able to perform for a while and we just want to sing. We’ll send in an audition tape and take as many covid tests as we need to. I promise we won’t be extra. We just really want a gig again. I hope you’ll consider this request and give us the opportunity to shine,” Mars asked nicely.

Of course, .Paak wasn’t quite so chill about it all. Earlier, he sent a whole lot of tweets Mars’ way about not seeing Silk Sonic — who just released their first single together, “Leave the Door Open” — named as performers for the March 14 show.

“YO @BrunoMars WHAT THE F—?!? Did you see this?!?! Call me back!!” he’d written, then suggested they start up a hashtag — #LetSilkSonicThrive — to get the word out that they’re ready and willing to play.

“Nah f— that!” .Paak said in another tweet. “I haven’t seen my family in months!! I need this to work, You promised me!! Everybody join in!!! I need all of Twitter to help make this trend!! Come on @RecordingAcad #LetSilkSonicThrive.”
