Just a week after the Super Bowl, Katy Perry is coming with yet another live spectacular. 

Billboard has learned that Perry is preparing a performance for this weekend's Grammy Awards. (Billboard reached out to reps for the Grammys and Perry, who did not respond to a request for confirmation.) The singer is planning to bring "By the Grace of God," a touching ballad off her latest album PrismPerry described the song, where she details contemplating suicide, in a 2013 Billboard cover story saying, "That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'"

Katy Perry's Halftime Show the Most-Watched in Super Bowl History

The move to turn the tempo down is reminiscent of her 2011 Grammy performance when she opened with Teenage Dream love song "Not Like the Movies" before moving into "Teenage Dream." There's no word on if she's prepping a medley or solely sticking with "Grace."

We also learned the star is producing a highly visual spectacle with dance elements playing a central role.
