The Lumineers are But One of the Bands Who'll Delight the Grammy Awards Audience

They may have become the sweethearts of the Billboard charts with their debut eponymous CD, but now, Denver-based band The Lumineers is getting ready for one of their biggest gigs yet -- performing at the Grammy Awards.

Performing at the famed award show won't be the only excitment the trio faces that night -- they're also nominated in the Best New Artist and Best American Album categories.

Jack White (himself a nine time Grammy winner) will also entertain the crowd at Los Angeles' Staples Center on February 10th, as will 21 year-old relative newcomer, Ed Sheeran, who is over the moon that he'll be singing a special duet with Sir Elton John, tweeting, "'Buzzing to announce I am going to be performing live on @TheGRAMMYs ... Cannot wait! (sic)"

Some other big names like Rihanna, Taylor Swift, The Black Keys, Fun, Carrie Underwood and Mumford and Sons have also been confirmed as performers for the evening's 55th live event. The show will be once again hosted by LL Cool J (because, you know, ladies love cool James) and will be broadcast on CBS at 8pm ET on Sunday, February 10.
