The Grammy Awards are being handed out next month, and details about the star-studded show are quickly falling into place. Following reports that Adele, Bruno Mars, Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban would be performing at the ceremony, another round of artists has been announced.
 
As Pitchfork reports, Daft Punk and the Weeknd will take the stage together, presumably showing off some of their collaborative cuts from the latter's Starboy LP — though the record wasn't released in time to be up for nominations this year.
 
In a separate all-star mash-up, A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak and Dave Grohl will join forces to perform together. The multi-talented singer/rapper/producer .Paak is in the running for Best New Artist.

UPDATE (2/2, 10:30 p.m. EST): The Recording Academy and AEG Ehrlich Productions have now announced that the announcement was made "prematurely," and Grohl will not be performing with A Tribe Called Quest and .Paak during the show.

Their full statement reads [via Billboard]:


Earlier this week, we announced that Dave Grohl would be performing with Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest prior to confirming all participants. Dave Grohl will not be part of this performance. Unfortunately, our announcement was made prematurely. On behalf of The Recording Academy and AEG Ehrlich Productions, we sincerely apologize to all parties involved for our error.

Also slated to appear together during the show are Alicia Keys and country upstart Maren Morris.
 
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast on February 12 at 8 p.m., hosted by James Corden. Revisit the full list of this year's nominees here.
