Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has been added to the list of presenters at the 2015 Grammy Awards

This Grammy Awards will take place tonight (Feb. 8), and in a last-minute move, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been added to the long list of presenters at the ceremony. Joining Grohl in the presenter role will be Anna Kendrick, Shia LaBeouf, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.

Performers representing rock tonight will include AC/DC, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, Beck and Hozier.

Those wondering why Foo Fighters’ new album, “Sonic Highways,” isn’t nominated for any Grammy Awards can rest easy. The album was released after the Grammy Awards’ Sept. 30 cut-off date. The Foos’ last album, 2011’s “Wasting Light,” and its songs snagged five Grammy Awards.

This year’s Best Rock Album nominees include Ryan Adams for his self-titled release, Beck with “Morning Phase,” The Black Keys with “Turn Blue,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with “Hypnotic Eye” and U2 for “Songs of Innocence.

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS tonight.
