In one of the night’s more memorable performances, Eminem and Dr. Dre performed “I Need a Doctor, featuring the newcomer singing the melancholy chorus.”

“following between each verse is skylar grey’s haunting hooks/choruses …. i see big things in the future for her …. it’s about time she gets the recognition for her talent and insanely hypnotizing voice.”

“The third best performance of the night had to go to Rihanna, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Skylar Grey (who I’d never heard before but was really great!) …. Grey’s vocals were easily on par with Rihanna’s”

SwagBucks Blog
“The most interesting discovery for me on this list was Skylar Grey, an artist whose recent Grammy performance was hidden in the shadows….”

Suite 101
“Ms. Grey is quickly gaining notoriety for her sweet, beautiful voice and far reaching vocal range. In “I Need a Doctor” she provides a soulful chorus, which contrasts nicely with the rappers’ verses.”

Skylar Grey XLIII :: National Ledger ‘Mystery Girl Wows GRAMMYs’ Feature

The National Ledger just ran a feature on Ms. Grey, which you can now find below! Also check out a feature article on by MyEveryzine by clicking the picture below the article.

National Ledger – “Mystery Girl Skylar Grey Wows GRAMMYs” ::
The Eminem and Dr. Dre collaboration and feature with Skylar Grey for the new single “I Need A Doctor” from Dre’s Detox album, was spectacular, and has everyone asking
– who is Skylar Grey?

MTV called it this way: “The epic “I Need A Doctor” was as expected a major spectacle as Skylar Grey’s wailing vocals and the dramatic shift in mood on stage was seamlessly pulled off and nearly erased all visuals and memory of Rihanna’s appearance with Slim Shady just moments before it. Fans on Twitter reacted in record number, and much of the responses named this performance the best of the night.”

Access Hollywood has an interview here.

Skylar Grey XXXVIII :: GRAMMYs Blog

Ms. Grey (who has been nominated for 2 GRAMMY awards) just debuted an official blog on GRAMMY.com. It adds some detail to her recent past, including her first working with Alex Da Kid, writing “Love The Way You Lie”, and starting her career. You can read a preview of the blog below, and read the entire blog here.

Here’s a excerpt from the blog ::
“When I wrote the chorus to Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna, I was living alone in a cabin in the woods, with my home studio. I was taking a step away from the industry in an effort to nurture my muses, which had been seriously damaged. I certainly wasn’t attempting to write a hit song, but rather channeling what naturally came to me, with no expectations. It was the first time I had ever collaborated with Alex Da Kid, the song’s co-producer. Though I had never met him in person, musically we connected instantly over e-mail. The minute I found out Eminem was going to put it on his album my life became surreal. What a way to get sucked back into the industry. I was ready for it, though. After reflecting on the past and soul-searching in the woods, I realized I had grown into a completely different person. I was stronger than ever before and was prepared to deal with anything that was thrown at me without letting it compromise my creativity.”

Actress Pauley Perrette also tweeted a photo of herself in where the GRAMMY nominees will be sitting tomorrow, which includes where Ms. Grey will be seated.
