Following rumours that she could be taking part in the upcoming Grammy Awards, Madonna has been officially confirmed for the ceremony.

Madonna will perform as part of the event in Los Angeles at the Staples Center tomorrow night (January 26). Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has also been added to the bill and will perform with Miranda Lambert in a special tribute to Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers, who recently passed away. In addition, British comedian Steve Coogan will now be appearing as a presenter at the ceremony.

It was revealed earlier this week that Beyoncé and Jay Z will both perform at ceremony, with the husband and wife team set to perform a duet of 'Drunk In Love' from Beyoncé's recent self-titled 'visual album'.

This year's Grammys will be hosted by LL Cool J, with The Beatles' Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr scheduled to perform together on the night. As previously announced, Metallica will play the Grammys with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang. The metal band will be performing at the event for the first time in 23 years, having last played the ceremony in 1991. Lang Lang last performed at the bash in 2008.

Lorde and Katy Perry will also perform. Other acts lined up to appear include Daft Punk, who will perform with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers and Kendrick Lamar, who will perform with Imagine Dragons. In addition, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, John Legend and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will play the ceremony.
