Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers to Pay Tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys

The Recording Academy has announced that Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers (right) will pay tribute to the late David Bowie at this year's Grammy Awards in what is being called a "multisensory treatment".

Gaga has often talked about Bowie's influence over her music and style and Rodgers produced one of Bowie's biggest albums, Let's Dance.

Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction. We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She's perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great Grammy Moment, but one befitting of David."

Sources are saying that up to four songs may be included in the tribute.

Other performers already booked for the Grammys include Adele, James Bay, Andra Day, Ellie Goulding, Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd. LL Cool J once again hosts.

The Grammys are set for Monday, February 15 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
