She will join a line-up including Bruno Mars, John Legend, Keith Urban, Metallica and Carrie Underwood who will entertain the audience at the 59th annual Grammy Awards.

To date, Katy has received 13 Grammy nominations but has never won – 2015 was the last time she was up for a gong, when she made the shortlist for best pop duo/group performance with Dark Horse and best pop vocal album for Prism.

Katy has also been rumoured to be in talks to perform at this year’s Brit Awards in London.

This year, the Grammys ceremony will take place on February 12.
