The Grammy stage just got even more star-studded.

Chance the Rapper, Little Big Town and Sturgill Simpson were just announced as performers for the Feb. 12 Grammy awards Thursday morning (Feb. 2), joining an already packed lineup that includes Adele, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Carrie Underwood.

In addition to the Chicago rapper and the country acts, soul singer William Bell will be teaming up with blues musician Gary Clark Jr. for a special performance. That won't be the only collaboration of the night, though, as The Weeknd and Daft Punk are set to perform together and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as well as best new artist nominee Anderson .Paak will join hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest.

Chance is nominated for seven Grammys, including best new artist, best rap album and best rap song -- which three of his nominations comes from (he's up for his song "No Problem" as well as his features on Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam" and "Famous"). Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth is nominated for album of the year and best country album.

The Grammys will air Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS and will be hosted by James Corden.
