This year music lost one of it's biggest muses of multiple genres.

David Bowie's passing hit the music world pretty hard but the 2016 Grammys and Lady Gaga will be looking to celebrate the life and legacy that Bowie left behind.

Gaga will be performing a tribute to Bowie announced about a week before the show.

"We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed -- almost in a single moment -- we knew we had to change direction," said executive producer of the GRAMMY Awards Ken Ehrlich in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David.

She's perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great GRAMMY Moment, but one befitting of David."

Gaga's eccentric nature does in fact represent a lot of what Bowie stood for as well, making her a truly great candidate for the job. The 2016 Grammys is scheduled for February 10 and will feature performances from artists like Adele, Kendrick Lamar and more.

Another big story will be Lamar's 11 Grammy nominations and just how many he manages to take home on award night.
