These days, the Grammys are less of an awards show and more of a concert, where awards are handed out to keep the audience entertained between sets.

This year’s lineup is already chock-full of big-time performers, but THR reports that the show still has room for a few more big names.

We learned yesterday that Justin Bieber will perform his Grammy-nominated Where Are U Now at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, while the trio of Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr., and Bonnie Raitt will take the stage to pay tribute to the late B.B. King. Pitbull, Robin Thicke, and Travis Barker will also perform together, and The Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Johnny Depp) are set to make their TV debut.

These performances are in addition to the previously announced slate of Adele, James Bay, Andra Day, Ellie Goulding, the Broadway cast of Hamilton, Lady Gaga, Sam Hunt, The Weeknd, Tori Kelly, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, and Carrie Underwood.

To sum up: The musicians are playing — all of them.

In all seriousness, the new additions will help add even more variety to this musical smorgasbord and will provide new storylines to follow: A resurgent Bieber, the legendary Bonnie Raitt paying homage to the legendary B.B. King, Depp & Co. making their TV debut on a massive stage — there’s plenty to chew on here.

As is the case with the rest of this never-ending lineup. If you’re a music fan, at least one of these names has to have you intrigued. And if you’re not a music fan then …. well, we feel sorry for you.

Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated on any further additions and/or surprise guests.

The 58th Annual Grammy Awards air Monday, February 15, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
