Andra Day & Ellie Goulding, Tori Kelly & James Bay Performing at the Grammys

Update: In addition to the Andra Day-Ellie Goulding and Tori Kelly-James Bay duets, the Recording Academy announced that previously confirmed performers Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood will be singing together.

Not simply a chance to see music’s biggest acts performing in one theater, the annual Grammy Awards ceremony typically provides an opportunity to see some of those big acts perform together.

The 2016 ceremony is no exception.

The Recording Academy Tuesday confirmed a pair of collaborative performances for the event.

Andra Day will be performing with Ellie Goulding, while Tori Kelly will take the stage alongside James Bay.

The four acts join a list of confirmed performers that includes Adele, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Little Big Town. A CBS commercial strongly suggested Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood will also be performing, but the Recording Academy has not formally announced those performances in a press release or on Twitter.

The February 15 ceremony will also feature a musical tribute to Lionel Richie. The ceremony airs on CBS.
