The Grammy Awards are known for pulling off some unexpected collaborations, and they might have just topped themselves with this one. The Recording Academy announced today that Maroon 5 and Foster the People are teaming up for a performance at this Sunday’s ceremony with the legendary Beach Boys, who haven’t taken the stage together in more than 20 years.

The Beach Boys rose to fame in the early ’60s with hits like ‘Good Vibrations’ and ‘God Only Knows,’ but their current lineup — Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks — has not appeared together on stage since the ’80s. After the award show, the group plans to hit the road for an extensive 50th Anniversary Reunion Tour.

At the Grammys, they’ll be matched up with two of today’s most vibrant pop-rock acts. Maroon 5 are Grammy nominees this year for ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ while Foster the People scored two nods for their debut album ‘Torches.’

Might we see Adam Levine and company sing the Beach Boys classic ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice?’ Or will the Beach Boys put their own spin on ‘Pumped Up Kicks?’ The possibilities are endless. The Grammy Awards air at 8PM ET on Sunday, Feb. 12.
