Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are set to perform at this years 56th Grammy Awards, with their inclusion to the Grammys set list being announced this week by the music awards showcase. Although the organisers for the event have revealed that the pair will perform, they have yet to specify whether the two will appear on stage together at all, a prospect that most are hoping for.

The pair were announced as two of the latest confirmed acts to appear at the awards show, with fellow performers John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Sara Bareilles and Carole King also added to the bill.

This will be Starr's first performance at the Grammys, whilst his 16-time Grammy-winning former bandmate will be hoping he can end the night with a few more gongs to his name. McCartney is nominated for two awards in total; Best Rock Song for his collaboration with Nirvana's Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear 'Cut Me Some Slack,' and for Best Music Film for Live Kisses, alongside collaborators Jonas Åkerlund, Violaine Etienne, Aron Levine, and Scott Rodger.

Who's Missing From This Years Grammy Nominations

A number of performances had already been confirmed for the big night, with one of this year's most nominated acts Daft Punk performing on stage with Nile Rogers, Pharrell and 25-time Grammy winner Stevie Wonder. Fellow nominees Imagine Dragons, Kendrick Lamar and Lorde will perform together, with 8-time winners Metallica and China Lang Lang giving them a helping hand. A country showcase featuring Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and nominee Blake Shelton is also on the agenda and fellow nominees Katy Perry, Pink and Nate Reuss, Robin Thicke will also perform, as will Chicago.

LL Cool J will once again host the Biggest Night in Music, which will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, 26 January. The showcase will be broadcast on CBS in the US.
