The 56th Annual Grammy Awards, set to take place on January 26, has beefed up its performance lineup. Lorde and Katy Perry have been added to the show, as well as a unique collaboration between Metallica and Cultural Ambassador to China Lang Lang. Robin Thicke will perform with classic group Chicago, and as reported yesterday, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder will team with Daft Punk. They join previously announced performances by Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons; P!nk and Nate Ruess; and a special performance featuring Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Blake Shelton. LL Cool J returns as host of Music's Biggest Night.

As noted yesterday, The Eurythmics also will reunite for the Grammy television special The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27 and it will air on February 9, exactly 50 years to the day after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform as a duo on the show, but producer Ken Ehrlich did not reveal which Beatles tune the British duo will perform, according to Billboard.

The Grammy Awards will take place live on Sunday, January 26 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The telecast also will be supported on radio worldwide via WestwoodOne, and covered online at GRAMMY.com and CBS.com. Additional performers, presenters and special segments will be announced soon.

In related news, Atlantic Records and The Recording Academy will release the 2014 Grammy Nominees album on January 21. The 20th anniversary installment of the series features 18 hits from a diverse array of this year's nominees, including Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Lorde, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift and more.
