TORONTO - American alternative rock band Imagine Dragons will perform in the halftime show at next month's Grey Cup game, the CFL announced Thursday.

The Grey Cup contest will be played Nov. 30 at B.C. Place.

"This is a dynamic young band that reflects today's CFL and the excitement that has always surrounded our biggest game and Canada's biggest party, the Grey Cup," Sara Moore, the CFL's vice-president of marketing and events, said in a statement. "The millions who saw Imagine Dragons steal the show at this year's Grammy Awards, where they won a Grammy for best rock performance, will know how exciting it is that they will command Canada's biggest stage."

The band from Las Vegas released its debut album "Night Visions" in 2012 and it was certified three times platinum in Canada. The single "Radioactive" went platinum seven times while follow up "Demons" was platinum five times over.

"We're thrilled to be coming to the Grey Cup to entertain CFL fans in Vancouver and right across Canada," lead singer Dan Reynolds said. "Canada has supported us from the beginning so it's always exciting to go back."
