With a trio like this, you make a hit.

Rihanna is officially performing at the 58th Grammy Awards. She will be joining a list of equally exciting artists who were previously announced to perform.

The Grammys took to its official Twitter account to announce the great news of the eight-time Grammy winner's infusion in the all-star lineup. She is joking the likes of Adele, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, and Kendrick Lamar among others. Rihanna has just released a new single, "Work," featuring rapper Drake. 

This is hardly Rihanna's first time to perform for the Grammy Awards. In fact, she is one of the regulars, if one can call her that. Her past Grammy performances were all memorable too, as detailed by E Online, which serves as a hint of how well fans can expect her to perform this year. 

Last year, she performed "Four five Seconds" with Kanye West and Paul McCartney. The trio did not use colorful props and other stage tricks but instead, kept their performance a little more subdued. They opted for a plain white background. Regardless, their performance was praised widely. 

On 2013, she delivered two performances on the event. First, she performed her hit song, "Stay." She wowed everyone with her emotional performance with Mikky Ekko performing alongside her. She took to the stage for a second time to pay tribute to Bob Marley with Bruno Mars. They sang "Could You Be Loved." 

On 2012, she sang "We Found Love" while dancing her heart out. The performance was also complemented with a lot of theatrics. 

The previous year, she and Eminem took the audience by storm with their performance of "Love the Way You Lie, Part 2." Many lauded Rihanna's stunning vocals that night. 

Her first time to go onstage was on 2008. She sang her hit song "Umbrella" and also performed "Don't Stop the Music." It was all very pop, which was how she was known for at the time.

In a related news, Adele's participation in the Grammy Awards is a rare feat because she is also set to perform at the Oscars. It is very rare for music artists to perform at two of the biggest award shows in the world. 

The Awards Show is airing on Feb. 15. It will be hosted by LL Cool, which has been its host for five consecutive years now.
