Justin Bieber, Pitbull + Skrillex Added to 2016 Grammy’s Performance Lineup
Update (2/4): Justin Bieber, Diplo and Skrillex will perform together at the 2016 Grammy Awards, according to a statement. The show will also include a collaboration between Pitbull, Travis Barker and Robin Thicke; a tribute to B.B. King by Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt and Gary Clark Jr. and the TV debut of Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry of The Hollywood Vampires.
The lineup of performers for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards gets bigger and more star-studded as the February 15 air date inches near. As Billboard highlights, The Grammy Awards announced the addition of two more incredible pop stars to the lineup via Instagram: Justin Bieber and Pitbull. We can only hope they’ll perform together — but time will tell.
The organization clearly had Bieber fever in mind with their announcement that the “Sorry” singer would be performing.
Pitbull’s announcement paid homage to his larger-than-life party anthems with the tagline, “@pitbull is bringing the party to the 58th #GRAMMYs stage.”

Bieber’s “Where Are U Now,” his collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo, is nominated for Best Dance Recording, while Pitbull’s album Dale is nominated for Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album.
Last week (January 20), the organization announced that pop’s reigning queen and ten-time Grammy winner Adele would be performing—quite the consolation since the timing of her album release did not qualify her for nominations this time around. Also announced were rap golden child Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd, who have almost a dozen nominations in total between them. Country stars Little Big Town round out the lineup.
The 58th Grammy Awards will air on Monday, February 15 at 8pm ET on CBS. Will you be tuning in?
