LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift will perform at the 2016 Grammy Awards on Feb. 15.

The awards ceremony confirmed the 26-year-old singer "will return to the Grammy stage" after Swift was featured in a Super Bowl 50 ad for the forthcoming event Sunday.

USA Today reports Swift will open the ceremony with a song from her most recent album, 1989. She will reportedly choose a track she hasn't performed live on television before.

Swift is nominated for seven awards this year, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. She is already a seven-time Grammy winner who last won Best Song Written for Visual Media for "Safe & Sound" in 2013.

Adele, Selena Gomez, Adriana Grande, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are among the other artists who will perform at the ceremony. Drake will not perform despite being listed in the Super Bowl ad.

"I am not performing at the Grammy Awards...but hey it's the thought that counts," the 29-year-old rapper tweeted.

Swift released 1989 in October 2014 and completed her accompanying world tour in December. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 1.28 million copies in its first week, and includes the singles "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood."
