The biggest night in music now unofficially includes about 60% of all the hit-makers you can name off the top of your head. Wiz Khalifa and Miguel just joined the 2013 Grammy lineup, which already includes Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Jack White, Frank Ocean, fun. and the Black Keys. It kinda makes you wonder if they're actually going to have time to hand out awards.

It's also been revealed that previously announced performers Mumford & Sons and Elton John will pay tribute to the Band's late drummer Levon Helm, who died of throat cancer last April. Joining John & Mumf for the Helm tribute are Mavis Staples, Zac Brown (lead singer of Zac Brown Band) and Brittany Howard (lead singer of Alabama Shakes).

So with all this happening on Sunday, February 10, what won't you see at the Grammys? According to a stern memo from CBS, don't expect to see "buttocks" or "the genital region" at the 2013 Grammys. So you'll have to stick to the Internet for that.
