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

The 2016 Grammys already have a stacked lineup, with Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber and more set to perform. But on Sunday night (Feb. 7), during Super Bowl 50, the annual biggest night in music revealed its biggest performer to date: Taylor Swift.

Swift is set to join the 58th annual Grammys, as a commercial for the award show confirmed during the big game. Later, the Grammys confirmed Swift's planned appearance on its Twitter, leaving no doubt that the "Out of the Woods" singer would be taking the stage.

Swift's performance at this year's Grammys should come as no surprise. Next to Kendrick Lamar (who tallied 11 nods), she is the most-nominated musician, with seven potential wins on the line. Three of those nominations include slots in three of the four main categories: Album of the Year (1989), Record of the Year ("Blank Space") and Song of the Year ("Blank Space"). Swift is also nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance ("Blank Space"), Best Pop Group/Duo Performance ("Bad Blood"), Best Pop Vocal Album (1989) and Best Music Video ("Bad Blood").

Swift is also no stranger to the Grammys stage. She is a seven-time Grammy winner (including a win for Fearless as Album of the Year in 2010) and has performed at the show five times before, most recently in 2014 with an emotional rendition of "All Too Well."

Swift joins a lengthy list of performers at the 2016 Grammys, which include Rihanna, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, The Hollywood Vampires and more.
