The 59th Annual Grammy Awards are right around the corner (Feb. 12, to be exact) and on Wednesday the Recording Academy announced this year's roster of live performers: Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban.

Metallica most recently appeared on the Stern Show in September 2016, performing live and promoting their new album "Hardwired to Self-Destruct." In addition to playing some of their classic hits, the band played its new single "Hardwired," which went on to score a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song.

The Grammy Awards will be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 12. Recent Stern Show guest James Corden will host the show, airing live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
