The 2015 Grammys Performers List Is So Epic

by Alyse Whitney

The 2015 Grammys performers list just keeps getting better. On Wednesday, the award show announced a slew of new musicians who will be entertaining us on Feb. 8. In addition to the already-announced performers — including Madonna, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, AC/DC, and Eric Church — we will see Sam Smith's Grammys performance debut and John Legend and Common singing Golden-Globe-winning song "Glory" from Selma .

Those three artists getting onstage are exciting enough, but there are also three other big additions: Usher, Pharrell Williams, and Miranda Lambert. This sticks with the trend of a mix of genres at the Grammys, and I'm hoping that they have fun and perform together. I don't know about you, but the idea of Lambert rocking out with AC/DC or Madonna dancing around with Pharrell is pretty amazing. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé are not on this list yet, but I imagine they're saving the best for last. The Grammy Awards promise that there are still more performers to be announced over the coming weeks, and it seems like they'll be rolling out new names at least once a week.

It should be noted that almost everyone on this list so far has been nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award. AC/DC and Madonna are the only ones who weren't on the list, but neither released new music last year. Check out the full list of performers below, and stay tuned for more updates.
