The Unexpected and Possibly Cringe-Worthy Live Collaboration has become a time-honored Grammys tradition, and this year’s ceremony will apparently be no exception. In addition to the promised “dance/electronica spotlight,” featuring Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, the Foo Fighters, Deadamau5 and David Guetta (all at once!), the Grammys have just announced that the Beach Boys will begin their reunion at Sunday’s festivities with a Foster the People-Maroon 5 joint performance. So, does this mean Brian Wilson will sing “Pumped Up Kicks?” Or is Adam Levine going to try to harmonize? Can we somehow get John Stamos in on this action? Reach for the stars, Grammys!
