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.

QUIZ: Guess the Crazy Grammy Getup!

“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.”
