Published January 19, 2012

Rihanna will be hitting the Grammy stage for the second year in a row, this time alongside British alt-rock group Coldplay. For the first time live, the Bajan pop princess will lend her vocals to their collaborative song "Princess of China" off Coldplay's most recent album, Mylo Xyloto, reports The Rap Up.

"My friends @Coldplay and I will be sharing the stage for a performance at this years Annual Grammy Awards! #BONKERS," Rih Rih announced on Twitter.

While she'll share the stage on Grammy night, Rih's not doing too bad on her own as far as accolades go. She has been nominated for four awards at this year's Grammy and her current single, "We Found Love," is at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the 10th week in a row.  

Rihanna and Coldplay are the latest stars to be announced as performers, joining Nicki Minaj, who will be gracing the stage for the first time in her career. Also six-time 2012 Grammy nominee Adele will deliver a highly anticipated performance punctuated by her absence from the music scene due to the vocal chord issues she suffered through much of 2011. Legendary rapper LL Cool J will emcee the night's events as the first Grammy host in seven years.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 12 on CBS at 8 P.M.
