BTS are heading to the 2020 Grammys for a special performance of "Old Town Road" featuring Diplo, Mason Ramsey and "surprise guests," along with Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus.

On Thursday (January 23), the Recording Academy made the announcement, which adds another "Grammy Moment" to the Sunday telecast. Among the other buzzworthy moment includes a tribute to executive producer Ken Ehrlich in honor of his last Grammy telecast. As a nod to his 40-year position, Camila Cabello, Gary Clark Jr. and John Legend, as well as Debbie Allen, Joshua Bell, Common, Misty Copeland, Lang Lang, Cyndi Lauper, Ben Platt, and The War And Treaty will band together to sing "I Sing the Body Electric." The song was featured on the film and TV series, Fame. Between 1982-87, he produced two seasons of the TV series.

"To bring high-caliber artists like [these] together on one stage fulfills a dream of mine," Ehrlich said in a statement. "To be able to do this on the Grammy stage makes it unforgettable for me."

Among the other performers for Music's Biggest Night include Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Demi Lovato, Lizzo, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, Camila Cabello, Tyler, The Creator, Rosalía, Jonas Brothers, H.E.R., Bonnie Raitt, Charlie Wilson and Run-DMC, who will perform alongside Aerosmith. Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch and YG will also perform a tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle.

Stay tuned for more updates on the 2020 Grammy Awards, which air live from Los Angeles' Staples Center on CBS on January 26 at 8 PM ET!
