Bruno Mars will be one of music stars who will get a moment to shine in the spotlight at this year’s Grammys. On Wednesday, the four-time award winner was announced as one of the show’s performers for music’s big night on Sunday, February 12 for the annual awards presentation.
Mars joins previously announced performers Adele, John Legend, Metallica, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban in taking the stage. It will be his fourth time gracing the event with a performance and his first since 2013, when he performed twice that night.
It’s not the only time he could hear his name called during the evening either. He is nominated in the Album of the Year category for his work on Adele’s 25. Her appearance on the show was also confirmed earlier this week as well, setting up the event as much watch television for music lovers and fans.
Mars is coming off a strong 2016 campaign that saw the release of his third studio album, 24K Magic, a project that made Uproxx’s Best R&B Albums list. The project debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 in its first week.
Hosted by the Late Late Show‘s James Corden, the 59th Grammy Awards are set to air live on Sunday, February 12 on CBS.
