Pop-rocker P!nk leads the charge of the initial performers for the upcoming 56th Annual Grammy Awards. Televised live from Staples Center in Los Angeles, Imagine Dragons, Nate Ruess, Kendrick Lamar and Daft Punk will also take the stage with their latest smash hits.
As far as country representation goes, "The Voice" coach Blake Shelton, two-time Grammy winner Merle Haggard, three-time Grammy winner and 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Kris Kristofferson and seven-time Grammy winner Willie Nelson will take part in a special "Grammy Moment."
The Grammy Awards will be broadcast on the CBS Television network on Jan. 26, 2014 at 8 p.m. EST.
Earlier this month, the prestigious list of nominees was announced with LL Cool J at the helm. Performances included Katy Perry and Taylor Swift (both pre-recorded touring escapades), Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Keith Urban, Miguel and Robin Thicke -- the latter joined forces with T.I. and members of Earth, Wind & Fire.
Arsenio Hall, Enrique Iglesias and British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran also made appearances.
