The first wave of performers at the 2017 Grammy Awards were quietly unveiled over the weekend in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it TV spot that aired during the Saturday night NFL playoff game.

Carrie Underwood, Metallica, Keith Urban, The Weeknd and John Legend will take the Staples Center stage during the Feb. 12 ceremony, which airs live at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Underwood, Metallica and Urban are nominated for awards (Urban is a multiple nominee with three).

The pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony, during which the awards in the majority of the 84 categories are presented, will be available to stream online.
