Adele, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd will perform at the Grammys this year

Adele, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd will all perform at this year's Grammy Awards, The Wrap reports. It's a pretty solid lineup so far that reflects the award show's more-impressive-than-usual list of nominees this year.

The performances at the Grammys tend to waver somewhere in that not-so-sweet spot between dull and insane. Last year, Madonna danced alongside a group of men dressed like Satanic goats, while Pharrell performed his impossible-to-avoid single "Happy" and made a muddled statement on race in America.

The Grammys might be okay?

Lamar and The Weeknd's Abel Tesfaye are Grammy nominees as well as performers. Lamar has been nominated for the most Grammys (11) out of any artist this year, with The Weeknd trailing close behind at seven nominations. Both have been nominated for Album of the Year. But Adele's record-busting 25 missed the cut-off for nominations this year. The eligibility period ran from October 1st, 2014 to September 30th, 2015 and Adele's album came out last November.

CBS says it will announce more performers in the upcoming weeks. The Grammys will air on February 15th.
