Jon Stewart is going to be heading off a musical tribute to Bruce Springsteen. “The Daily Show” star has been announced as the host for the Grammy’s MusiCares benefit to honor Springsteen, which is being held on Feb. 8.

In addition, the Recording Academy announced that artists like Mumford & Sons, Elton John, Sting, Neil Young, Kenny Chesney and Marvin Staples will all pay tribute to The Boss. Springsteen has been named MusiCares’ person of the year because of his philanthropy and artistic contributions in 2012.
