The nominations have been announced and first-time host James Corden has been named, but now we also know who will hit the stage at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 12.
The first round of performers were announced today and include a wide variety of Grammy winning artists.
Ten-time Grammy winner John Legend has been announced as a performer for this year’s ceremony, with Legend having previously won for his solo work, as well as his duets with Common, Joss Stone, Al Green and The Roots.
Country superstar and former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood will also be returning to the Grammy stage. The seven-time Grammy winner made history in 2007 when she became the second country artist behind LeAnn Rimes to take home the Grammy for Best New Artist. In addition to performing, Underwood is also nominated this year for Best Country Solo Performance for her song, “Church Bells.”
Fellow country artist Keith Urban is also set to perform at the annual awards show. Urban is nominated for two Grammys this year, including Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance.
Rockers Metallica are also both performers and nominees this year, looking to score their ninth Grammy with a win in the Best Rock Song category for their track, “Hardwired.”
UPDATE: On Friday, January 21, Adele who is up for five Grammys this year with her huge 2015 album 25, has been added to the performer line up.
With the Grammys just under one month away, we can expect more performer announcements at any time. Leading the nominations this year is Beyoncé, who scored an incredible nine nominations thanks to her groundbreaking 2016 album Lemonade. Not far behind Queen Bey are Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West, with all three artists receiving eight nominations this year, making them top contenders for performance slots.
