The 54th Grammy Awards will take place next month, and now the Recording Academy has announced the first performers for the big event. Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, and Foo Fighters will hit the stage, all of whom are nominated for Grammys this year. This will be Jason and Nicki's first time performing at the awards show.

Bruno is up for six awards this year, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Grenade'; Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans'; and Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for his work with his production group the Smeezingtons, among others.

The night is likely also going to be a big one for Minaj as she's nominated in four categories: Best New Artist; Best Rap Performance for 'Moment 4 Life; Best Rap Album for 'Pink Friday'; and Album Of the Year as a featured artist on Rihanna's 'Loud.'

Meanwhile, Taylor, a four-time Grammy winner, has three nominations, including Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for 'Mean,' as well as Best Country Album for 'Speak Now.'

More performers will be announced soon. The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast on CBS on Sunday, February 12 at 8PM ET live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, so set your DVRs!
