Bob DylanMusic legend Bob Dylan will perform at the Grammy Awards Sunday night, joining previously announced veteran headliners Mick Jagger and Barbra Streisand.

It will be Dylan's fifth appearance at the Grammys, and organizers said he will perform with up-and coming young Brits, Mumford & Sons, and folk-rock band the Avett Brothers, in a special salute to acoustic music.

But it won't be all folksy Sunday night: Get ready for Dr. Dre's first live television performance in more than 10 years. The rapper will be performing in a "special collaboration" with multiple nominee Eminem and Maroon 5 front-man Adam Levine.

Mumford & Sons have two nominations, for Best New Artist and Best New Rock Song. They described performing with Dylan and the Avett Brothers as "rather exciting," and refused to divulge any information about what song they'll play. "That remains a secret behind our strict vow of silence, so you'll have to tune in to find out ... "

As well as showcasing new talent, the Grammys will also pay tribute to past greats including "The King of Rock 'n' Soul" Solomon Burke, who died last year, and ailing soul legend Aretha Franklin.

Jagger will sing in the tribute for Burke, while Christina Aguilera and Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch will reportedly stage a "Valentine's" and "get-well" tribute for Franklin, who is recovering from surgery

'The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards' airs Sunday Feb. 13th., 8PM ET on CBS.
