So one of my favorite awards shows is now less than a month away.  While many wait to see if Adele will perform, other performers are being announced for the show.  Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, and Bruno Mars all have all ready been confirmed.

Now, Rihanna & Coldplay will join in on the fun and MTV has the details:

Rihanna and Coldplay will perform live together for the first time on February 12 when they take the stage at the 54th annual Grammy Awards for the televised debut of their Mylo Xyloto collaboration, “Princess of China.”

Rihanna, nominated for four Grammys this year, broke the news on Twitter, writing, “My friends @ColdPlay and I will be sharing the stage for a performance at this years Annual Grammy Awards!” A short time later she added, “WE reached 2BILLION views on @youtube !!! THANK U!!! I’m in a great mood, and I got some GREAT NEWS!!! PRINCESS OF CHINA #GRAMMYS2012.”

The show, which will be hosted by rapper LL Cool J, will also feature a performance by rock icon Paul McCartney, who will join a lineup that already includes Grammy nominees Foo Fighters, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Marks, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean.

At the time Xyloto was released, Coldplay singer Chris Martin explained that the decision to invite another voice into the studio was made because of the unusual story arc of the band’s Grammy-nominated album.

More Grammy performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
