The biggest night in music is here! The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will air on Monday, February 15, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS, and the star-studded lineup is insane.

Be sure to watch it live, because you never know what could happen. (For example, if Yeezy shows up, things could get very interesting with Taylor Swift.) But feuds aside, there are also plenty of performances to look forward to.

Here are the five moments we can’t wait to see:

1. Taylor Swift Opening the Show

Nice to meet you, where you been? After her banner year promoting her hit album 1989, Swift, 26, will be opening the show. With her knack for theatrics and dozens of side feuds, we can’t wait to see what happens.

2. The Cast of Hamilton

Thank goodness it’s Presidents’ Day — because one of the founding fathers will be honored at the annual awards show with a telecast performance from the cast of Hamilton. This is a rare opportunity to see the Broadway cast — headed up by writer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda — since the actual show is sold out for months. The Great White Way meets mainstream music? We’re there!

3. Lady Gaga’s Tribute to David Bowie

Though it’s early in the year, the world has already lost a legend in British rocker David Bowie. To make sure the music great is remembered properly, Lady Gaga, 29, will be giving a tribute. Fresh off her widely praised rendition of the national anthem at Super Bowl 50, she seems like the perfect pick for this special moment.

4. Adele’s Performance

Though Adele’s 25 album isn’t eligible for this year’s awards, she’s still gracing us mere commoners with her moving vocal stylings. Sources tell Us Weekly that she will be singing her new ballad, “All I Ask.” So get ready for the waterworks.

5. Kendrick Lamar’s “Controversial” Performance

Following Beyoncé’s controversial Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show, rapper Kendrick Lamar is set to have his own buzzed-about performance at the Grammys. Host LL Cool J told the ladies of The Talk, "Kendrick Lamar's performance will be very controversial. There will be a lot of conversations about that … I think that's what art is about. It's about challenging society's values and morals and stimulating them to have a dialogue about certain issues."
