"She'll be taking it easier than normal," a source close to the show said.
The singer will likely bring on special guests for part of the performance, TMZ added. Queen Bey will also have an "elaborate digital screen onstage" to display some kind of motion during her set. This detail brings to mind a stage design technique incorporated into her Formation World Tour, in which Bey used a large screen to magnify herself and her dancers during the concert, as seen below.
The news about Bey taking a more laid-back approach to this year's Grammys performance is no surprise, as the singer revealed on Feb. 1 that she was pregnant with twins. She showed off her growing tummy in maternity photos she released to make the announcement.
Before the pregnancy news, many expected an elaborate onstage presence similar to the memorable and high-energy TV appearances Yoncé left behind in 2016 — from her controversial all-black everything "Formation" performance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show and her water-splashing live take on "Freedom" at the BET Awards (featuring Kendrick Lamar) to an epic medley of Lemonade songs at the VMAs.
Sunday night will also be the preview for what may or may not be her show at Coachella in April. The singer is still scheduled to perform on both festival weekends.
