The Grammys announced Tuesday that Gaga will perform a "multisensory tribute" to Bowie at the Feb. 15 ceremony in Los Angeles. Nile Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on the 1983 hit "Let's Dance," will be the musical director for Gaga's tribute.

Bowie died of cancer last month only days after releasing a new album.

LL Cool J will be host of the annual music awards show for the fifth consecutive year.
