The Grammys announced the first round of performers who will take the stage on February 15th at Los Angeles' Staples Center. Representing hip hop? Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd.

The Grammys are hip hop heavy this year -- LL Cool J will host the festivities for the 5th time, and Run-DMC is set to receive a lifetime achievement award. With 11 Grammy nominations for Lamar and 7 noms for The Weeknd, they are both poised to take home a ton of hardware. Both are up for Album of the Year.

Other acts who will perform at the 58th Grammys are Adele, Lionel Richie, and country band Little Big Town. More to come... stay tuned.
