LL Cool J to Host 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Plus Find Out Who Else Is Performing!

It looks like LL Cool J is reprising his role as host at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards! This will be the rapper's second time taking the lead at the award show and will also serve as a producer.

In addition to announcing the rapper-actor as this year's hosts, CBS has also released the names of other performers set to take the stage at the prestigious ceremony. Miranda Lambert, Sam Smith, Usher and Pharrell Williams will croon some of their best hits while Common and John Legend will sing Golden Globe-winning "Glory," from the Oscar-nominated movie Selma.

These artists will join previously announced performers, which were Ariana Grande, AC/DC, Eric Church, Madonna and Ed Sheeran.

Common is nominated for two Grammys: Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Blak Majik," featuring Jhené Aiko, and Best Rap Album for Nobody's Smiling. Country star Lambert is up for four awards: Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for "Automatic," Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "Somethin' Bad" with Carrie Underwood and Best Country Album for Platinum.

Nine-time Grammy award winner Legend has garnered two nominations at this year's event for Best Pop Solo Performance for "All of Me" (Live) and Best Rap Song for "Bound 2." Although he is making his Grammy performance debut, British singer is already one of the year's top nominees with six nominations under his belt.

The Grammys take place Sunday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. ET
