Adele, who has won 10 Grammy awards, it set to perform at the 2016 ceremony next month (15Feb16), it has been revealed.

Adele will be performing at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

The Hello singer, who has 10 Grammy wins under her belt, didn't get any nominations for this year's ceremony as she released her album 25 after the deadline date for consideration.

However, Adele will still be delighting fans at the event, as she will take to the stage in February (16) to show off her vocal talents, the Associated Press confirmed on Wednesday (20Jan16).

It remains to be seen just what Adele will choose to sing for the occasion.

Other stars confirmed to perform at the Grammys include Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and Little Big Town.

Kendrick is also featured in a staggering 11 categories for the awards. One such group, best album, will see his record To Pimp a Butterfly compete against Taylor Swift's 1989.

Another person to receive more than one nomination at the award is Nicki Minaj, who is up in the categories of best rap album, best rap Performance and best rap/sung collaboration.

Nicki famously took to Twitter when the nominations were announced and complained she had been left out from the major categories such as Album of the Year, Song of the Year or Record of the Year.

But in a recent interview, Nicki said she was hoping to take home at least one award at the ceremony, as she feels it would be recognition for her hard work in the industry.

"Winning a Grammy would inspire women to continue to rap and write and to never give up," she told HITS Daily Double. "I’ve put so many years into this culture that I often feel is overlooked. Prior to my three albums, I put out three mixtapes, which also changed the game for women in rap. I would literally sit in a room for days and write, and my sole purpose was to be better than the boys and to prove that women are just as smart, creative, witty, business-savvy, etc. I never really felt that male rappers saw us as their equals. I was determined to change that."

The Grammy awards will be hosted by LL Cool J and will take place in Los Angeles on 15 February (16).
