Rihanna, Cee Lo Green, Gwyneth Paltrow, the Muppets … and Mick Jagger. What do they all have in common?

They're all set to perform live at the Grammys Feb. 13.

For the 67-year-old Rolling Stone frontman – believe it or not – this is a first, the Recording Academy announced Thursday morning. Jagger will take to L.A.'s Staples Center stage as part of a tribute to soul great Solomon Burke, who died last year.





"He's asked me not to go into detail about what he's doing, but I think when you see the performance, it will make a lot sense," show producer Ken Ehrlich told the Associated Press. "I think it was the idea of the performance that was intriguing to him and really brought him here."

A quarter of a century ago the Stones performed during the Grammys when they received (from Eric Clapton) a lifetime achievement award, but that appearance was via satellite.

"We did a remote from London, and it was at least three o'clock there," said Ehrlich. "I think they had been celebrating a little time before we went on camera," he said. "It was quite a moment."
