U2 added as Grammy performer; Elton John collaborating with Miley Cyrus

ABC/Randy HolmesU2 has joined the lineup for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, which takes place January 28 in New York City.

Bono and company's slot is being billed as a "special performance." It's not unthinkable that the Irish legends might perform a tribute to the late Cranberries singer and fellow Ireland native Dolores O'Riordan, who died unexpectedly this week at age 46.

Also added to the bill are Elton John and Miley Cyrus, who will team up to perform one of Elton's classic hits. Two days after the Grammys, John will be saluted at an all-star Grammy tribute concert, during which he and his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin will receive the Recording Academy President's Merit Award. The show will air later this year as a CBS special.

Other Grammy performers include U2-collaborator Kendrick Lamar, as well as Sam Smith, Alessia Cara, Bruno Mars, Pink, Lady Gaga, Kesha and more. The Grammys, hosted by James Corden, air January 28 on CBS at 7:30 p.m. ET, live from New York's Madison Square Garden.
