The first round of artists have been announced for the awards ceremony which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The live line-up for this year’s Grammy Awards is beginning to take shape as Madonna, Ariana Grande, AC/DC, Ed Sheeran and Eric Church have all been announced as performing at the event on February 8th. The announcement was first made this morning (January 13th) by the award show’s official twitter account.
Coming back for more? Madonna at last year's Grammys
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 He has since been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.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.
British singer Ed Sheeran will be giving his second Grammys performance, after he paired with Elton John last year for ‘A Team’. The flame haired singer is up for three gongs at this year's awards including Album of the Year for X.

Also with multiple nominations is country star Eric Church. Church has scored four nominations including Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Album for the The Outsiders.
Rounding off the first list of performers is double nominee Ariana Grande who is up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance alongside Jessie J and Nicki Minaj for 'Bang Bang' and Best Pop Vocal Album for My Everything.
Expect more performers to be announced as the countdown to the ceremony on February 8th begins.
