Get ready for music madness: the first round of musicians performing at the 59th annual Grammy Awards have been officially announced, and if these are just the first few, we can't wait to see what the Recording Academy has in store for us as the awards show gets closer.

Keith Urban, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and Metallica are all set to perform on Feb. 12, and we're expecting big things from the musicians, as each of the artists and the band have multiple Grammys under their belts, and plenty of on-stage performances to boot.

Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, Urban, and Underwood have all been nominated at this year's awards, so perhaps they'll be gracing the stage as winners as well as performers during the night. Hetfield and Ulrich are nominated for Best Rock Song for "Hardwired," Underwood is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for her song "Church Bells," and Urban is up for Best Country Album (Ripcord) and Best Country Solo Performance for his hit, "Blue Ain't Your Color."

Legend just released his latest album, Darkness and Light back in December, so we're hoping to hear him perform a few songs from the new tracklist.
