New York - Elton John and Mumford & Sons will hit the Grammys stage to pay tribute to Levon Helm.

The Recording Academy announced on Thursday that T Bone Burnett, Mavis Staples, Zac Brown and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes will also perform The Weight at Sunday's awards ceremony.

Helm was the drummer and singer for The Band. He died of complications from cancer last year at age 71.
