Jeff Lynne’s ELO will perform with Ed Sheeran Sunday as part of an all-star moment with Herbie Hancock, John Mayer and The Roots’ Questlove at the 57th Grammy Awards Sunday (CBS, 8 p.m. ET/tape delayed PT).

The recently reunited ELO, which played its first full show in 28 years in London this past September, features founding members Lynne and keyboardist Richard Tandy. The appearance is likely a precursor to a new album and U.S. tour later this year.

ELO’s ’70s and early-’80s hits included Mr. Blue Sky, Livin’ Thing, Strange Magic and Don’t Bring Me Down.

The latest set of performer announcements for Sunday’s telecast includes four-time nominee Sia and 20-time Latin Grammy winner Juanes. Sam Smith will duet with Mary J. Blige, and Smith’s fellow new-artist nominee Brandy Clark will make her Grammy performance debut singing with Dwight Yoakam. Coldplay’s Chris Martin will guest with Beck, and pianist Lang Lang will sit in on an as-yet unannounced song.

Those performers will join a Grammys lineup that already includes AC/DC; Tony Bennett with Lady Gaga; Eric Church; Common with John Legend; Ariana Grande; Hozier with Annie Lennox; Jessie J with Tom Jones; Miranda Lambert; Adam Levine with Gwen Stefani; Madonna; Rihanna with Paul McCartney and Kanye West; Usher; and Pharrell Williams.
