The musical stylings of Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith and U2 will be on display during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 28.

The trio joins a lineup of previously announced performers including Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Bruno Mars, Pink, SZA, Childish Gambino, Logic, Luis Fonsi, Cardi B, and, in a nod to the show’s return to New York, Patti LuPone and Ben Platt.

As well, Miley Cyrus will pair with Elton John to perform one of John’s classics; two days after the Grammys, John will be honored at “Elton John: I’m Still Standing – A Grammy Salute,” where he and songwriting partner Bernie Taupin will receive the Recording Academy’s Merit Award.

The Grammys will air live from Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. on CBS.
