The Beatles' Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are set to perform together at The Grammys.

McCartney has been nominated for a number of awards, including Best Rock Song for 'Cut Me Some Slack' with Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic, whilst Starr will be honoured with the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony. Other new live additions to the awards ceremony bill include Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, John Legend and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, reports Rolling Stone. The Grammy Awards 2014 take place at The Staples Center in Los Angeles.

As previously announced, Metallica will play the Grammys with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang. 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. Lorde and Katy Perry will also perform. 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.

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.
