Get ready, Little Monsters, because Lady Gaga is going to take over the Grammy stage.

Variety reports that Mother Monster is the latest artist to join an already jam-packed, star-studded performance lineup on music's biggest night this Sunday. 

It's already a big night for Gaga, because she's been nominated for five awards: Album of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for her Tony Bennett collaborative work Love for Sale, as well as Record of the Year, Best Pop/Duo Performance, and Best Music Video for their song "I Get a Kick Out of You."

Bennett will not be joining Gaga on the Grammy stage because of his health.  His son, Danny Bennett said in a statement, "Although the producers had invited both Tony and Gaga to perform in Sunday’s Grammys broadcast, it is unfortunate that due to his continuing struggle with Alzheimer’s, he was not able to accept. It was decided that it would be fitting for Lady Gaga to perform on her own to represent for both of them."

Danny Bennett says his father "will be cheering her on as he watches from his home in New York City."

The two previously took over the Grammy stage in 2014 to perform "Cheek to Cheek."  The legendary crooner last performed with Gaga at Radio City Music Hall over the summer.  That concert aired on CBS, titled One Last Time: An Evening with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.

Aside from the "Applause" singer, other artists slated to perform at the upcoming Grammys are Olivia RodrigoSilk SonicJohn LegendCarrie Underwood and many others.

The 64th Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by Trevor Noah, air Sunday night starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
