The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Monday, 15 February at Los Angeles's Staples Centre and a little piece of news just got us even more hell-bent on watching it live on TV (on Tuesday morning on this side of the world), work deadlines be damned. Here are reasons, based on an announcement made by The Recording Academy yesterday, to watch the Grammys, other than finding out who won what.

1. Adele is performing
This is a given – if you can lose your minds over Adele having a karaoke session with her own songs, you can lose your minds over her performing live. At the Grammys. Yes.

2. Kendrick Lamar is performing
Kendrick tops the nominees list this year with 11 nominations, so he's bound to set the stage on fire alright.

3. The Weeknd is performing
Sorry, we can't feel our faces right now.

4. Little Big Town is performing
No Grammy Awards night is complete without country music, and these guys are brilliant.

"This lineup of talented artists is just the beginning of what will, once again, prove to be music's biggest night," Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement.

We'll have even more reasons soon, then. Not that you needed more after hearing that Adele is performing. Duh.
