Current Grammy nominees The Band Perry, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and John Legend are set to honor Stevie Wonder in a primetime special, the Recording Academy announced Thursday.

The artists join previously announced performers Janelle Monaée, Ed Sheeran and Usher for Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life – an All-Star GRAMMY Salute, a tribute set to air on CBS in February.

Hosted by LL Cool J, the live concert at Los Angeles’s Nokia Theatre will fête 25-time Grammy winner Wonder and his ample recording catalog (“Isn’t She Lovely”! “Superstition”! “My Cherie Amour”!).

“Stevie Wonder is an icon who forever changed the world of music with his extraordinary gifts, pure talent, kind spirit and incredible sense of humor,” LL Cool J said in a statement. “I am honored to host this special show filled with incredible talent as we pay homage to the one and only Stevie Wonder.”

The two-hour special airs Feb. 16 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
