The entertainment lineup for "Music's Biggest Night" keeps getting even better. The Recording Academy announced on Tuesday that some of the night's biggest nominees would be performing during the 60th annual ceremony.

Cardi B, Bruno Mars and SZA will each hit the stage at Madison Square Garden for the GRAMMY Awards, according to Tuesday's announcement. 

Cardi B, who is nominated for two GRAMMY awards this year (Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for "Bodak Yellow") will make her debut on the GRAMMY stage.

SZA will also be making her debut on the GRAMMY stage. She is nominated for five awards (including Best New Artist and Best R&B Performance for "The Weekend").  

Five-time GRAMMY winner Bruno Mars is no stranger to the GRAMMY stage, as you may recall he performed a tribute to Prince during last year's show. He is nominated for some of 2018's biggest awards (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for 24K Magic).

In addition to these performances, Logic, Khalid, and Alessia Cara  will come together for a powerful performance of their song "1-800-273-8255." They will be joined on stage by a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors to deliver an important message.

Earlier this year, Logic and Khalid were part of our special "I'm Listening" program, which hoped to end the stigma of talking about mental health. The program, which aired on Entercom stations across the country on World Suicide Prevention Day, featured other artists like Halsey, Jack Antonoff, Metallica and more, You can listen to the broadcast by clicking here
