Washington, Jan 18 (ANI): Beyonce Knowles has declared her support for the Grammy Awards after confirming that she’ll perform at the event even if striking writers boycott the ceremony.

The former Destinys Child singer will join the Foo Fighters, who announced earlier this week that they’d cross picket lines to perform at the Grammys on 10 February.

Event organisers are resolute the show will go on as scheduled, regardless of the threat of protest from the striking writers, reports Contactmusic.

Writers Guild of America (WGA) union members insisted the Los Angeles music ceremony was “unlikely” to receive a waiver, halting potential picket action, earlier this week.

Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent and Jon Bon Jovi have are said to have pledged their loyalty to the WGA members, who have been on strike since November (07) over new media royalties. (ANI)
