Grammy's may bar top stars as awards try to crack China

Grammy viewers had better get ready, because this year's ceremony is about to get a little dose of dale. On Sunday (Jan. 24), the annual award show announced that Justin Bieber and Pitbull will be performing their pop hits this February, joining the likes of Adele, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd in the lineup.

The Grammys revealed its latest performers in a series of tweets, confirming that Bieber and Pitbull will be in attendance at this year's show.

Bieber is nominated for Best Dance Recording this year alongside Skrillex and Diplo (Jack U) for their smash hit "Where Are U Now." Though the 21-year-old pop star has never won a Grammy, he has been nominated twice before, including a nod for Best New Artist in 2011 wherein he lost to jazz singer Esperanza Spalding.

Meanwhile, Pitbull will be adding some much-needed Latin flavor to this year's Grammys. He's nominated for his first Grammy award this year, as his Spanish-language album Dale got a nod for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album, and he will be bringing that record to the awards.

Bieber and Pitbull join a short list of already announced performers at this year's Grammys. Adele, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and Little Big Town are also confirmed to take the stage at this year's show. More artists are also expected to be announced.

The 2016 Grammys will air on Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. on CBS with host LL Cool J.
