Leading Grammy contenders Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift will be among the performers at the awards early next year.

Nominations have already been announced, with Beyonce vying for 10 awards while Swift is up for eight.

R&B singer Maxwell and country group Lady Antebellum, who are up for six and two awards respectively, have also been added to the bill.

Winners will be announced on 31 January at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Additional performers and presenters will be announced at a later date.

The nominations were read out earlier this month by rap star LL Cool J.

British acts Depeche Mode, Coldplay and singer-songwriter Imogen Heap picked up two nods each, while The Tings Tings have been nominated for best new act.

Earlier this year Led Zeppelin's frontman Robert Plant was the big winner, taking home five prizes for his collaboration with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss.

Coldplay, Adele, Duffy, Radiohead and Peter Gabriel were among other UK stars to see success.
