The Grammys are Monday, and it's time to get excited.

With so many performances, there's plenty to get thrilled about. Here are 10 things we hope to see from Monday's live ceremony:

Grammy Awards 2016: All Our Coverage

1. Kendrick Lamar has yet to perform Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" live. Swift has been mum about what she'll be performing during the opening of the ceremony, but we've got our fingers crossed it could finally be the live collaboration between the two album of the year nominees.

2. After her Super Bowl performance (and, like, all her other big shows) we can't wait to see what kind of medley Lady Gaga has planned for David Bowie.

3. There's nothing funny about it, but we're curious to see what, if anything, Swift and Kanye West have planned after West's lyrical diss-that-he-claims-isn't-a-diss. Will even host LL Cool J dare to acknowledge it?

4. Justin Bieber is set for his own big Grammy moment. We can't wait to see how he plans to make his highly anticipated returrn with Skrillex feel different than the performances before it.

5. Hollywood Vampires -- which, yup, includes Johnny Depp -- will make their first TV appearance. How does Johnny look as a rock star -- we'll find out. (Spoiler: The answer is....very good.)

6. The Grammys are always known for their unexpected mashups, bringing together different genres for an unforgettable performance. We can't wait to see what duets like Andra Day and Ellie Goulding have in store. 

7. Hamilton will be the first Broadway performance on the show since 2010, when the cast of American Idiot joined Green Day for a performance of "21 Guns." We know the rest of America will quickly fall in love with the cleverness of the show as much as New York (and the thousands who've already downloaded the cast album) already has.

8. Lamar is set for a big coronation moment. We can't wait to see who he'll bring out as a special guest, or if he decides to blow us all away on his own.

9. Adele is, of course, a Grammy darling, so it's no wonder her return Grammy performance is highly anticipated. Will she sing her worldwide smash "Hello" or promote new single "When We We're Young" (or something else!) Can we please get a medley up in here?

10. Is it too much to expect a surprise Beyonce performance (or at least appearance)? It worked for the Super Bowl.

The Grammys air Monday, Feb. 15, on CBS.
