7 Grammy Awards Performances We Can't Wait For

Beyoncé! Katy! Gaga! Adele! And More!

Liam Mathews

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards are Sunday, Feb. 12. James Corden will host and some awards will be given out, but the real point of the show is in the performances. And there are going to be some good ones this year.

These are the seven we're most excited for!

7. Little Big Town, Demi Lovato, Andra Day and Tori Kelly's Bee Gees tribute
For the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever, this eclectic bunch will be putting their spins on the Bee Gees' iconic soundtrack. We're so curious to hear what a countrified "Staying Alive" might sound like, and to watch these three budding divas try to out-sing each other.

6. Adele
Ms. Adkins-- who is nominated for the three top awards this year -- will seek to make everyone forget about her technical difficulty-plagued performance last year (and steal some of Beyoncé's thunder).

5. Chance the Rapper
This budding superstar's Grammys appearance is historic, because he's the first completely independent artist -- he has no record label, and he gave his hit album Coloring Book away for free through a unique deal with Apple Music -- to ever be nominated for a Grammy. Seven, in fact. He's the biggest beneficiary of a Grammys rules change that rendered his line "I heard you gotta sell it to snatch the Grammy" on Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam" obsolete. Hopefully he brings his puppets.

4. Metallica & Lady Gaga
If Metallica's prior collaborations are any indication, this is probably going to be terrible. But a post-Super Bowl Lady Gaga may make it work through sheer force of personality. It'll at least be interesting.

3. Katy Perry
Katy Perry just put out "Chained to the Rhythm," the first single from her first album in four years, so she'll be performing that. She may even announce her new album title. Hell, she may even surprise release her new album. She's big enough to pull that off.

2. The Prince Tribute
This will be the first Grammys ceremony since Prince died last year, and the show is surely going to pull out all the stops to pay tribute to the Purple One. No performers have been announced yet, but expect some big names. They also just announced a George Michael tribute, which should be equally huge.

1. Beyoncé
We were already excited for Beyoncé to dominate this year's Grammys -- she's up for nine awards -- and then last week happened. She's not officially confirmed yet, but that's just adding to the anticipation.

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards air live Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8/7c on CBS.
