Other new additions to the performing roster include: country crooner Brad Paisley, best new artist nominee Feist and the casts of "The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil" and Across The Universe, who will offer a special Beatles tribute.
While the Grammys are renowned for unusual live pairings, this year's ceremony promises several dynamic match-ups. The Academy has already announced that Rihanna will perform with reunited group the Time in a special segment to commemorate the award show's 50th anniversary. In addition, Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, the Clark Sisters, Israel And New Breed, and Trin-I-Tee 5:7 will all take part in a special gospel segment.
Other previously announced Grammy performers include: Carrie Underwood and the Foo Fighters (joined by guest conductor John Paul Jones).
