The Grammy Awards go down this week and, win or lose, both Miguel and Wiz Khalifa will be taking the stage. The rapper and singer both earned nominations, and have been announced as performers on Sunday’s ceremony.

The set list hasn’t been announced but chances are they’ll perform the remix to Miguel’s hit love song “Adorn,” which features Khalifa. Released last summer, the track peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B charts, and No. 17 on the Hot 100.

Miguel landed three nominations for “Adorn,” bringing his grand total to five.  “I remember starting…and two hours later I was listening to a full song,” Miguel told Ryan Seacrest of constructing the record. “As a musician you’re like, ‘it should be played on the radio,’ if you believe that about your music. But whether of not I thought it was going to be played on the radio…that’s a completely different story.”

Khalifa has two nominations, one in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category for Maroon 5’s “Payphone.” His second nod comes courtesy of  his “Young Wild & Free” collaboration with Snoop Dogg.

Miguel and Khalifa join a list of show performers including Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Sting, and Alicia Keys.
