Prince is planning a Grammy Awards performance.

The 'Purple Rain' singer is set to play a special set at the star-studded ceremony on February 8 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California, adding to an already impressive line-up including Madonna, AC/DC and Pharrell Williams.

A source told Us Weekly: "He has something very, very special in the works."

The music icon will join other acts such as Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Miranda Lambert and Sam Smith if he does perform at the ceremony, which would be his first time singing at the show since 2004.

During that performance 11 years ago, the 'Red Corvette' hitmaker sang with Beyoncé - who has racked up six nominations at this year's ceremony - performing a medley of 'Purple Rain', 'Let's Go Crazy' and 'Baby I'm a Star' as well as the 33-year-old musician's debut solo single 'Crazy in Love'.

It wouldn't be the 56-year-old performer's first appearance at an awards show this year as he attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, where he presented the Best Original Song category.
