We’re less than two weeks away from the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and the yearly awards show just got another big injection of talent.
Just announced today, The Weeknd and Daft Punk, Maren Morris and Alicia Keys, and a Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak and Dave Grohl will perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 12.
Country singer Maren Morris scored four nominations this year and will be performing alongside 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys. In 2002, Keys earned her first Grammy win for Best New Artist, a category Morris is nominated in this year.
Another Best New Artist nominee is Anderson .Paak, who will be joining A Tribe Called Quest and Dave Grohl on stage at the Staples Center in LA for a highly anticipated group performance. Anderson appeared on A Tribe Called Quest’s 2016 album We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your service, which was released following the tragic death of founding Tribe member Phife Dawg.
As for The Weeknd, he teamed up with Daft Punk for two of his biggest tracks from 2016’s Starboy, including “I Feel It Coming” and the title track, which also acted as the album’s lead single. Although Starboy didn’t make the cut for this year’s Grammy nominations, The Weeknd still earned a nomination this year thanks to his work on Beyoncé’s Lemonade.
As for Daft Punk, their upcoming Grammy performance will mark the French duo’s first live performance since the 2014 Grammy Awards, following the release of 2013’s Random Access Memories.
The Grammys also recently added Bruno Mars to the line up for this year’s show, following the release of Mars’ third studio album, 24K Magic. In addition to Mars, today’s artists added to the Grammy Awards line up join previously announced performers Adele, Keith Urban, Metallica, John Legend and Carrie Underwood.
Three names that won’t be included in this year’s line up are Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Drake. Though all three artists are nominated this year (West and Drake earned eight nominations each, while Bieber is up for four awards), they’ve all confirmed they won’t be appearing at music’s biggest night.
The three artists have reportedly said they don’t feel the award show is ‘relevant or representative, especially when it comes to young singers.’ Drake and Justin Bieber are both up for Album of the Year, a category that also includes Adele, Beyoncé and Sturgill Simpson.
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will be hosted by James Corden and take place on Sunday, February 12.
