The biggest names in music will take the stage on Monday for the 2016 Grammys, to be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Check out the list of performers for music’s biggest night below!

Slated to perform at the 58th annual Grammy Awards are Adele, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, and Carrie Underwood. There will also be performances from The Weeknd, Sam Hunt, Meghan Trainor, Pitbull, Luke Bryan, Diplo, Robin Thicke, Skrillex, and Tori Kelly. But that’s still not all.

Rihanna, Miguel, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, Andra Day, Alabama Shakes, Ellie Goulding, the Eagles, James Bay, Gary Clark Jr., the Hollywood Vampires (with Johnny Depp), and the cast of Hamilton will get moments in the spotlight, too. The stars of Hamilton will actually be doing their performance via satellite in New York. Swift is slated to open the show, and may be on the stage quite a few times as she’s nominated for seven awards, though Lamar has her beat with 11 nods.

Bieber will be kicking off his performance with an acoustic version of “Love Yourself,” before doing “Where Are U Now” with his co-nominees Diplo and Skrillex. Though not nominated, Lovato will be on hand to take part in a tribute to Lionel Richie, the MusiCares Person of the Year, with nominees Trainor and Legend. Gaga will be doing a solo tribute to David Bowie, whose face she had tattooed on the side of her rib cage this weekend.

And if all that isn’t enough, Gwen Stefani will be doing a live music video for her new single “Make Me Like You” during one of the commercial breaks. Gossip Cop will have full coverage of the Grammys throughout Monday, including the afternoon “Premiere Ceremony” before LL Cool J hosts the main event at 8 p.m. Eastern. Stay tuned!
