Adele will join Kendrick Lamar to perform at Grammys

By Ed Carty

Adele will be performing at the "Oscars" of the music world, the Grammys, next month, despite not being nominated for anything at the prestigious event.

The Hello singer is joined by other performers like Grammy nominee leader Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and Little Big Town in the newly-announced line-up.

Adele, who is a 10-time Grammy winner, did not qualify to be nominated for this year's ceremony as she released her new music after the required nomination deadline. She released her much-anticipated third album, 25, in November last year.

Lamar has been nominated in 11 categories, making him the frontrunner for nominations this year.

He will face competition from Taylor Swift in the coveted best album category, as his album To Pimp a Butterfly will go up against her album 1989.

Bad Blood singer Swift has seven nominations, tying with Canadian singer The Weeknd.

The 58th Grammy awards will be hosted by LL Cool J and will take place on February 15 in Los Angeles.
