BY Gregory AdamsPublished Jan 20, 2016

While it is exciting to figure out who takes a trophy home, a big part of watching the Grammy Awards is catching all the top-notch televised musical performances. Audiences may be in for a treat this year, with the list of artists appearing at the event including Kendrick Lamar, Adele, the Weeknd and more.

Organizers behind the 58th Grammy Awards unveiled the first wave of performers today (January 20) in a press release, confirming that the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center will be filled with Grammy-nominated artists come February 15.

Though the song choice remains TBA, Lamar is set to perform at some point in the evening. As previously reported, he has received 11 nominations this year, including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album for his massive To Pimp a Butterfly, as well as a nod in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for appearing on the remix to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood."

While Adele's 25 was released too late in 2015 to be in contention for the 58th annual Grammy Awards, the British pop singer, a 10-time winner, is set to perform as well. The as-yet-to-be-confirmed song choice comes from her latest album.

Canadian pop and R&B titan the Weeknd had a incredible 2015, due to his ubiquitous "Can't Feel My Face" single and the release of Beauty Behind the Madness and will reflect this with a performance. He's nominated for seven Grammys.

Also on the docket is a performance from country outfit Little Big Town, as well as an all-star tribute to Lionel Richie. The breakdown of who will be saluting the music icon has yet to be made available.

Info is forthcoming on the rest of the performers showing up to Staples on February 15.
