The Recording Academy announced its second lineup of performers on Thursday morning, revealing that there’ll be no shortage of variety during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards this February.
In an official statement, The Academy has promised the pairing to be “an unforgettable Grammy moment.”
In his debut year, Malone, 23, has been nominated for four individual awards, including album of the year for Beerbongs & Bentleys.
Also joining the roster is seven-time Grammy nominee Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, who was nominated in 2014 with Bangerz for Best Pop Vocal Album, and up-and-coming R&B star H.E.R., who has been nominated for five awards this year, including Best New Artist.
Lifetime Achievement Award winner and legendary singer Diana Ross will be honoured as a special guest at this year’s Grammy Awards. She will celebrate her landmark career and her 75th diamond birthday with an exclusive performance.
After almost six decades of making music, Ross has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. She is best known for songs such as I’m Coming Out and Endless Love, which she recorded with Lionel Richie in 1981.
#Grammys quickly became a trending Twitter topic in wake of the news. Artists took to the internet to share their gratitude and excitement for the prestigious award show.

Dedicated fans and music lovers alike jumped online to share their opinions for this year’s show.
Most of them were very pleased with the live acts.
In response to those in doubt, one user tried his hand at mashing together the Chili Pepper’s Snow (Hey Oh) with Malone’s Rockstar.
The response successfully supported the idea that the musicians likely have something clever hidden up their sleeves.
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. ET.
