Lionel Richie will be honored as the MusiCares Person of the Year ahead of the Grammys, but the Recording Academy announced Tuesday that the legendary singer-songwriter will be celebrated on Grammys night as well with a special tribute performance. The genre-bending performance will include Luke Bryan, John Legend, Demi Lovato, and Meghan Trainor performing classic songs from Richie’s nearly 50 years in the music industry.

Richie, a four-time Grammy winner, will also take to the stage to join the other artists to perform one of his most memorable songs. The tribute performance serves as the Grammys stage debut for Bryan, Lovato, and Trainor.
