Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Lorde, T.I. and Miguel have been added to the slate of performers for the Grammy Awards nominations concert special Friday.

Perry will be beamed in from Canada and Swift’s performance will be shown from Australia, where she recently launched the latest leg of her Red Tour, CBS announced on Thursday.

Keeping with the Grammy’s longstanding tradition of pairing acts for collaborations, Miguel will pair his alt-R&B cool with Keith Urban's country lilt. Also added to the lineup are members of Earth, Wind & Fire, who along with T.I. will join Robin Thicke for a number that will hopefully make America forgive him for that little debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The one-hour CBS special “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live -- Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night” will announce the nominations in several categories. Drake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are also slated to perform.

The nomination show will again be hosted by rapper-actor LL Cool J. The Grammys will be presented Jan. 26 at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.  “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live -- Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night” will air Friday at 10 p.m. PST.
