This year's Grammy Awards are turning out to be a stacked affair, and Katy Perry just sweetened the deal by promising a performance at the ceremony this Sunday (February 12).
Perry joins Beyoncé, Adele, Metallica, Carrie Underwood, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Demi Lovato and Keith Urban among the performers set for the show. By that math, we were due for one in 2016. Queen Bey friggin' slayed with nine nods, including Album Of The Year for Lemonade and Song Of The Year for "Formation".

However, they could always surprise us and show up anyway.
So gather your friends and break out the drinks and snacks because here are five solid reasons to tune into the Grammy's on Sunday.
