The Queen of Pop had been teasing a possible performance at this year’s awards, posting a pic on Instagram of an award mixed with her Rebel Heart artwork, along with the caption, "Rebel Hearts see you Feb 8th @TheGRAMMYs".

The performance will mark her fifth time on the Grammy’s stage, having joined Macklemore and Ryan Lewis last year for a rendition of 'Same Love' and 'Open Your Heart'.

Veteran rockers AC/DC will be making their first live appearance at the ceremony, since founding member Malcolm Young was forced to retire due to his dementia. He has since been replaced by nephew Stevie Young. However it is not known who will play drums for the band as Phil Rudd continues to face legal troubles in New Zealand.
