BTS, Taylor Swift, Cardi B and Billie Eilish are set to perform at next week’s Grammy Awards.

The Recording Academy announced on Sunday (March 7) that Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa will also hit the stage at the March 14 event.

BTS' performance marks the first time that a South Korean artiste is performing at the Grammys as a nominee.

The group is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category at the prestigious music awards ceremony. It is also the first time that a Korean music act received a Grammy nomination.

The show is set to air from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Grammys was originally supposed to take place on Jan 31 but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The academy said in a statement that "artistes will be coming together, while still safely apart, to play music for each other as a community and celebrate the music that unites us all.”

Trevor Noah is hosting the show for the first time.

Other performers include Chris Martin, John Mayer, Doja Cat, Maren Morris, DaBaby, HAIM, Lil Baby, Brandi Carlile, Roddy Ricch, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas.

Beyoncé is leading nominee with nine, followed by Swift, Lipa and Ricch, who each earned six nominations. – AP
