NEW YORK -- Even more all-star performers are headed to the Grammys later this month. U2 and Elton John are among the performers that will help celebrate music's biggest show at the 60th Grammy Awards.

The Recording Academy announced Wednesday that U2 and Elton John, who will sing one of his classics with Miley Cyrus, will perform at the Jan. 28 show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Sam Smith and Kendrick Lamar, who is up for seven Grammys, were also added to the lineup. Previously announced performers include Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Pink, SZA, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Kesha, Alessia Cara, Khalid, Logic, Patti LuPone and Ben Platt.

Two days after the Grammys, the academy will hold "Elton John: I'm Still Standing - A GRAMMY Salute," where Smith, Cyrus and others will pay tribute to the Rocket Man. John frequently performs at the Grammys and is known for his unexpected onstage collaborations at the show. He sang with Eminem in 2001 and in 2013 he performed with Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.

The week leading up to the Grammys will also feature some high profile performers: Eminem, Dave Matthews and Childish Gambino are part of the "Citi Sound Vault" from Jan. 24-28 at Irving Plaza in New York City.

Thirty Seconds to Mars will kick it off on Jan. 24, followed by The National, Eminem, Gambino and Matthews with bandmate Tim Reynolds.
