It’s that time of year! The 2012 Grammy Awards are just around the corner, and one of So You Think You Can Dance’s fiercest competitors will be performing alongside a high-wattage R&B recording artist.

Season 8 runner-up Sasha Mallory is set to dance for pop icon Rihanna — who already has several Grammys to brag about. The Clear Talent Group, Sasha’s agency, tweeted, “Looking forward to watching @onlyLeah @CCHANDLER89 @SashaMallory @RyanCNovak @calvitJr & Bryan Marsh perform with Rihanna at Grammys!”

The Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, February 12 on CBS at 8pm EST. It’s guaranteed to be an evening of glitz, glam, celebrities, and amazing performances by Adele, Coldplay, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and, of course, Rihanna with her fab back-up dancers, plus many more.
