The Grammy stage just got even more star-studded.

Chance the Rapper, Little Big Town and Sturgill Simpson on Thursday were announced as performers for the upcoming Grammy Awards, joining an already packed lineup that includes Adele, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Carrie Underwood.

In addition to the Chicago rapper and the country acts, soul singer William Bell will be teaming with blues musician Gary Clark Jr. for a special performance. That won't be the only collaboration of the night, though, as The Weeknd and Daft Punk are set to perform together, while Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as well as best new artist nominee Anderson .Paak will join hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest.

Chance is nominated for seven Grammys, including for best new artist, rap album and rap song (the category in which three he has three mentions — his own song "No Problem" as well as his features on Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam" and "Famous").

Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth is nominated for album of the year and best country album.

The Grammys are set to air live on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and will be hosted by James Corden.
