The performers also set to take to the stage are Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs and Steve Lacy – with more musical guests set to be announced in the coming days.

However, there is no word yet whether multiple nominees Beyonce, Adele or Harry Styles will take to the stage, with speculation mounting they may not even attend the ceremony. 

Beyonce leads the way with an incredible nine Grammy nods, tying the record for most nominations of all-time with a total of 88.

The 40-year-old A-lister happened to tally up the same amount of total nominations as her own husband Jay-Z at 88 while the 52-year-old mogul held the previous record of 83 and racked up another five bringing them to the same total.

Not far behind the Queen Bey were British singing megastars Adele and Harry Styles who both earned seven and six, respectively.
