*The Recording Academy announced today that LL Cool J will host the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, marking the “NCIS: LA” star’s fourth consecutive stint as host of the music awards show, including his memorable 2012 debut just hours after the tragic death of Whitney Houston.

Also, Common and John Legend will perform their Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-nominated song, “Glory,” from the movie “Selma.”

Pharrell Williams, Usher, Sam Smith and Miranda Lambert have also been added to the lineup of the Feb. 8 show in Los Angeles.

Smith, Pharrell and Beyonce are the Grammy leaders with six nominations apiece. They will battle Beck and Ed Sheeran for the top prize, album of the year.

Previously announced performers include Madonna, AC/DC, Ariana Grande, Eric Church and Sheeran.

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS from the Staples Center.
