Metallica will play the Grammys with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang, it has been announced.

The band are among a host of artists who have been added to the line-up for the awards ceremony, which will take place on January 26 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Lorde and Katy Perry have also been announced as nominee performers today (January 7).

Metallica will be performing at the Grammys for the first time in 23 years, having last played the ceremony in 1991. Lang Lang last performed at the bash in 2008.

Other performers already announced include Daft Punk, who will perform with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell, and Nile Rodgers and Kendrick Lamar, who will perform with Imagine Dragons.

Yesterday (January 6), it was announced that Eurythmics will reunite to pay tribute to The Beatles as part of the 2014 Grammy Awards.

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart went on hiatus in 2005 and last released a studio album in 1999 but will come back together for The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles, which will be recorded on January 27, one day after this year's Grammy Awards.

The show will then be broadcast on February 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their US television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. It is not yet known if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will feature in the programme.
