The Recording Academy announced the first round of performers for this year's Grammys: Taylor Swift, Mumford & Sons, fun., Rihanna and the Black Keys.

Performers are usually drawn from the pool of artists with the greatest number of nominees, which this year includes six acts with six nods each -- including the Black Keys, Mumford & Sons and fun.

More performers are expected to be announced, so there's still a chance for Kanye West and Frank Ocean. For a real twist, Perez Hilton quotes sources claiming Chris Brown would like to join Rihanna on the Grammy stage for a duet.

Rihanna, Swift and Mumford & Sons each have performed at the Grammys before.

Hosted by LL Cool J, the 55th annual Grammy Awards take place Feb. 10.
