The Recording Academy revealed the first wave of artists due on stage for the Grammy Awards at the Staples center in Los Angeles on February 11 on Thursday.
It includes five-time nominee Cardi B, 26; Havana hitmaker Camila Cabello, 21 – who is up for Best Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album – and Canadian pop hunk Shawn Mendes, 20, who has been shortlisted for Pop Vocal Album for his self-titled third album and Best Song for In My Blood.
They will be joined by Better Now rapper Post Malone, 23, who received four nods including Best Pop Vocal Performance and Album.
Also due on stage
Country stars Kacey Musgraves, 30, with four nods, and Dan + Shay, nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, will also perform.
The star-studded line-up announcement comes days after it was confirmed that Alicia Keys is set to host the prestigious awards ceremony.
In a YouTube video, the 37-year-old singer is seen receiving the exciting news in a phone call from her manager.
It also had clips of her spilling the beans to her mother, her husband Swizz Beatz, 40, and their children, eight-year-old Egypt and four-year-old Genesis plus staff members.
Alicia then spends the rest of the video trying on outfits, and taking part in a photo shoot for promotional material alongside the 15 Grammys she already owns herself.
