She is the undisputed musical sensation of the past 12 months – and now Adele is set to steal the show at the event of the year, with a live performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Also taking the mic at the glitzy February 15 bash is leading nominee Kendrick Lamar, plus Weeknd and Little Big Tow.

Adele enjoyed unrivalled success in 2015, clocking the USA's best-selling album of the year with 25, within just three days of her third LP's November release.

Lead single Hello smashed streaming records, picking up a billion clicks on YouTube alone, and spent 10 weeks at the top of the US Billboard charts.

Critics' favourite Lamar revolutionised hip-hop in 2015 with trailblazing LP To Pimp a Butterfly, and has been rewarded with 11 nominations at the 58th Grammy Awards. His closest competition comes from Taylor Swift and The Weeknd, clocking seven nominations apiece.

Hosted by LL Cool J at Los Angeles’s Staples Centre, Little Big Town will also perform at ceremony, after earning two nominations.
