In addition, T Bone Burnett will be musical director for the salute.

While there was no mention of what song would be performed in the Recording Academy’s press release, a number of sources are saying that it will be the Band classic The Weight.  The performance will be part of the annual look at artists who have died in the last twelve months.

It was also announced today that Miguel and Wiz Khalifa have been added to the performers roster for the show while Dave Grohl, Ne-Yo and Ryan Seacrest are now on the presenters list.
