Three months after his mother's sudden death, Kanye West is planning an emotional tribute performance at the Grammy Awards.

The rapper – who's up for eight nominations, including album of the year and rap album of the year for Graduation – has not been officially announced as a performer for the Feb. 10 awards show.
