The Grammys are getting historic, y’all!

It’s been announced that the cast of the hit Broadway show Hamilton will be performing a number from the acclaimed musical at the 58th Grammy Awards!

Lin-Manuel Miranda and his cast announced that they would be performing via satellite from the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York!

This performance will mark only the eighth time in history that musical theater has been featured on the award show — the most recent being the cast of American Idiot back in 2010.

Other musicals that took to the Grammy stage were Godspell in 1972, The Magic Show in 1975, Sophisticated Ladies in 1982, La Cage Aux Folles in 1984, Will Rogers Follies in 1992, Riverdance and Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk in 1997!

But the Hamilton segment will be historic for another reason — it’s also only the fourth time that a performance at the ceremony will be broadcast live via satellite!

The last time the Grammys had a performance from another location was when Amy Winehouse performed You Know I’m No Good and Rehab from London back in 2008 — the same year she won five Grammy awards!

Hamilton is one of the most innovative musicals to hit Broadway in quite some time — and we can’t wait to see the cast on awards night!

Check out the cast’s sweet announcement video (below) and watch them perform at the Grammys on Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS!
