UPDATE: Rihanna has been added to the 2016 Grammy Awards performance list. In addition to Rih Rih, stars like Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Chris Stapleton, and Alice Cooper have also been announced.
With Grammy season in full effect, the first round of performers have been announced.
The Weeknd, Adele, Kendrick Lamar, and Little Big Town have all been announced as performers for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, which goes down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 15. Besides performing, there’s a good chance these four acts will make multiple appearances on that big stage, as each are up for several nominations, including Kendrick’s big haul of 11 nods.
Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
For the first time ever, this year’s Grammy Awards be airing live nationwide, according to Billboard. This means the ceremony will be airing live in the Pacific and Mountain time zones. “We’ve discussed this with CBS for years, but a variety of factors came together this year, and we collectively agreed that we had the perfect opportunity to try a new model and see how viewers respond,” said the Recording Academy and GRAMMY Foundation president Neil Portnow in a statement.
LL Cool J will once again host this year’s show, marking his fifth consecutive gig as night’s master of ceremonies.

From the looks of it, fans will sure be in for a treat next month.
