Pitbull will take the stage with Robin Thicke, Travis Barker and some surprise guests.

The lineup of this year's Grammys performers just got more stacked. It was announced Thursday that Justin Bieber will hit the stage during the upcoming kudocast to perform his Grammy-nominated hit "Where Are U Now" with Diplo and Skrillex.

Additionally, Chris Stapleton will team up with previous Grammy winners Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt to pay homage to the late B.B. King (it was previously announced Lady Gaga will honor David Bowie on Grammy night).

An even more curious combination for the awards show also was announced Thursday: Pitbull, Robin Thicke and Travis Barker will perform together, with a few yet-to-be-revealed guests.

In the rock realm, supergroup The Hollywood Vampires — Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp — will make their TV debut.

The Grammy Awards are set to air live on Monday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS. Billboard cover star Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with 11 nominations, all of which he aims to win. 

Previously announced performers include Adele, James Bay, Andra Day, Ellie Goulding, the Broadway cast of Hamilton, Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly, Lamar, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood and The Weeknd.
