Hello!

Prepare yourself because the first batch of A-list performers have been announced for Music's Biggest Night®—and the initial lineup is already a doozy!

First, fans can get excited for Little Big Town, who are nominated for Best Country Song, Song of the Year, Best Country Duo/Group Performance, and Best Country Album, to join the performance roster at the 2016 GRAMMYs.

These country stars are no stranger to GRAMMY success, having been nominated for a total of seven categories in the past. Plus, in 2013, they walked away with a GRAMMY for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their hit "Pontoon."



Next, fans can give Adele, a 10-time GRAMMY Award winner, a warm greeting when she takes the stage at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards to perform a song from her current blockbuster album, 25.



Also riding on the GRAMMY train will be Kendrick Lamar, who is currently nominated for 11 awards.

In fact, it's pretty safe to say last year was more than just "Alright" for this rap sensation because he's nominated in the following categories: Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video, Best Dance Recording, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.



Finally, when the event airs live at 8e/5p on Monday, Feb. 15, it will mark the debut GRAMMY performance from The Weeknd, who has accumulated seven nominations off his latest studio album, 2013's Kiss Land.

This year, the Canadian-born crooner (also known as Abel Tesfaye) is nominated for Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, Best Song Written For Visual Media, and Best Urban Contemporary Album.



Watch the 2016 GRAMMY Awards on Monday, Feb. 15 at 8e/5p and stay tuned for more performer announcements in the coming weeks!
