The 2016 Grammys are continuing to slowly roll out their stacked performance lineup, and Thursday's (Feb. 4) announcements are some of the biggest yet. Jack U, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, Hollywood Vampires and more have been added to the schedule for the biggest night in music.

Justin Bieber was already announced to be a performer at this year's Grammys, but now details about his upcoming gig have been made clearer. He will be performing "Where Are U Now" alongside Diplo and Skrillex of Jack U. The inclusion of the smash hit single should come as no surprise - it's nominated for Best Dance Recording.

The Jack U/Bieber collaboration isn't the only all-star jam set to take place at this year's Grammys. Pitbull is also slated to perform alongside Robin Thicke and Travis Barker, blending together Latin music, rock and pop.

Though that collaboration is eclectic, the third newly announced grouping of the day is a little more logical. While Lady Gaga will be going solo in a tribute to David Bowie, a planned honoring of B.B. King will blend together country and rock, just like the blues legend himself. Best New Artist nominee Chris Stapleton is set to pay tribute to King alongside Bonnie Raitt and Gary Clark Jr.

Finally, the Grammys will be getting yet another dose of rock with a collaboration of a different sort - celebrities. Johnny Depp's band with Alice Cooper and Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Hollywood Vampires, is also slated to perform a tribute to Motorhead's Lemmy.

These artists are just the latest to be on the Grammys' bill. Other confirmed performers include Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Carrie Underwood and more.
