Mary J. Blige, Nelly Furtado To Take Grammy Stage; BSB Presenting

Gospel star Kirk Franklin joins U2's performance.

Nelly Furtado will be doing a lot of flying come Wednesday.

"I just found out like two days ago I will be performing 'I'm Like a Bird' [at the Grammy Awards], so I'll have to fly by the seat of my pants," the four-time nominee said at Saturday's NAACP Image Awards. "I'm totally nervous."

Furtado joins Mary J. Blige and Kirk Franklin as the latest (and presumably final) performers added to the 44th annual Grammy Awards ceremony. The Recording Academy recently increased the program's running time by 30 minutes in order to accommodate more performances.

Gospel Grammy-winner Franklin will hit the stage with U2, who are among a list of previously announced performers that includes 'NSYNC with Nelly, Outkast, Alicia Keys, Alejandro Sanz with Destiny's Child, Dave Matthews Band, Train, Bob Dylan and others (see "Outkast, Dylan, 'Lady Marmalade' Ladies To Perform At Grammys").

Also added to the awards show are Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow, Celine Dion, Craig David, Elvis Costello, Natalie Cole, Dave Koz, Jamie Foxx, Matthew McConaughey and Matthew Perry as presenters. They join Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Gwen Stefani, Ja Rule, Kid Rock and others.

Furtado is nominated for four Grammys: Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album (for Whoa, Nelly!) and Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (for "I'm Like a Bird"). Blige will vie for Best R&B Album for No More Drama and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "Family Affair."

Several of the latest presenters are also nominated, including Backstreet Boys for Best Pop Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocal, Craig David for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Sheryl Crow for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Dave Koz for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

The Grammys will be broadcast on CBS from 8 -11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
