Nicki Minaj steps out of the back door of her hotel (Dec. 9, 2012)

*Rapper Nicki Minaj will make her Grammy performance debut next month, joining Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars and country singer Jason Aldean on the list of artists scheduled to take the stage.

Grammy organizers announced Thursday that Minaj, who has four Grammy nominations, will perform at the Feb. 12 awards show, as well as country sensation Taylor Swift, and Kelly Clarkson.

Meanwhile, there was no official word on whether Britain’s Adele, whose album “21” was the biggest seller of 2011, will perform at the Grammys following surgery on her vocal cords in November.

Adele, who has been on doctor-ordered vocal rest since November, was not among the first list of Grammy performers. But the 23 year-old “Someone Like You” singer was listed on Thursday as being down to sing at the BRIT music awards ceremony in London on Feb. 21.

Organizers said additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
