Hip-hop fans, here's a look at what's coming up for the Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 12.

A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl will share the stage at the Grammys this year.

While Tribe's latest album We Got It From Here...Thank You 4 Your Service was released too late to secure a nomination (keeping it eligible for next year), the group are three-time nominees, last getting a nod for 1998's "Find A Way." Anderson .Paak has two nominations this year for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary album. Between Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has 14 Grammys out of 34 career nominations. Combined, this has the most potential for a memorable Grammy moment since Kendrick Lamar linked up with Imagine Dragons in 2014.

The James Corden-hosted telecast from the Staples Center will also feature performances from The Weeknd with a returning Daft Punk, Alicia Keys with Maren Morris as well as Adele, Bruno Mars, Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
