The Recording Academy has announced some of the entertainers who will perform at the 54th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean and the Foo Fighters will all hit the Staples Center stage.

Artists who are up for awards include Adele and Kanye West, who have six and seven nominations, respectively. Lady Gaga, Chris Brown and Rihanna are also nominated.

Speaking of Brown, he’s set to attend the Grammys for the first time since he and Rihanna’s infamous 2009, uh, encounter. Accordingly, the celebrity rumor mill is already hinting at a reconciliation between the star-crossed lovers. Do you think it’ll happen?
