Kendrick Lamar; Angelo Merendino/Getty ImagesThis year’s Grammy Awards will air February 15, and the first round of performers for the telecast has just been announced. 

This year’s leading nominee, Kendrick Lamar, will take the Grammy stage; he has 11 nods this year.  His first Grammy performance came in 2014, when he memorably collaborated with Imagine Dragons.

The Weeknd, who’s up for seven Grammys, will sing, as will country group Little Big Town, up for two trophies this year.  And while 10-time Grammy winner Adele wasn’t eligible to be nominated this year, she’ll still take the Grammy stage to perform a track from her album 25

This will be the first Grammy performance for The Weeknd, and Adele’s first time singing on the show in four years.

In addition, the telecast will include a special tribute to Lionel Richie, who’s been named the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year in recognition of his philanthropy and his artistic contributions. 

The Grammys, hosted by LL Cool J, will air on CBS live, starting at 8 p.m. ET.
