Newly announced Grammy night acts include Beck, John Mayer, Sia, Chris Martin, Brandy Clark, ELO and Mary J. Blige. Those performers, along with several other new names, will be incorporated into the following performances:

Beck, Chris Martin duet
Brandy Clark, Dwight Yoakam duet
Mary J. Blige, Sam Smith duet
Lang Lang will “add his musicality to one of this year’s most infectious songs”

“Previously announced performers include GRAMMY Award-winning band AC/DC; current nominees and GRAMMY Award winners Tony Bennett with Lady Gaga; nominee Eric Church; nominees and GRAMMY Award winners Common with John Legend; nominee Ariana Grande; nominees Hozier with GRAMMY Award winner Annie Lennox; nominee Jessie J with GRAMMY Award winner Tom Jones; GRAMMY Award winner and nominee Miranda Lambert; GRAMMY Award winners Adam Levine with Gwen Stefani; seven-time GRAMMY Award winner Madonna; GRAMMY Award winner Rihanna with GRAMMY Award winners Paul McCartney and Kanye West; nominee Ed Sheeran; nominee Sam Smith; nominee and eight-time GRAMMY Award winner Usher; and nominee and seven-time GRAMMY Award winner Pharrell Williams.”
