The Recording Academy announced today full details of the performances planned for the Grammys next month ...

Get ready to watch Beyonce, Foo Fighters and Carrie Underwood perform during the Grammys ceremony scheduled for Feb. 10 on CBS. Plus, two special events are planned. First, a special gospel segment, featuring Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, the Clark Sisters, Israel And New Breed, and Trin-I-Tee 5:7. Then, R&B star Rihanna will sing with The Time, Prince's ’80s pals specially reuniting for this show.

As previously announced, the Foo Fighters will perform as part of this year's "My Grammy Moment" segment on the telecast. Produced in partnership with YouTube and CBS.com, up to 20 unsigned musicians will be given the unique opportunity to play with Foo Fighters as part of an orchestra created specifically for this event. Three of these musicians will vie to be a featured instrumentalist during the performance. Arranging the orchestral piece and taking up the baton as special guest conductor will be Led Zeppelin's legendary multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones. Together they'll all provide the world with an entirely new take on the Foo Fighters' hit single "The Pretender."
