Pink and Ruess’ big duet “Just Give Me a Reason” is nominated for a GRAMMY this year for Song of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Their performance will mark the duo’s first time singing their hit on national television.

“In the past four years, both Pink and Fun. have given us some of the most memorable Grammy performances, with ‘Glitter In The Air’ and ‘Carry On’,” GRAMMY executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. “It was an easy and natural ask to have them perform on this year’s show because their collaboration is nominated, and with these two incredibly strong voices — arguably two of the most signature voices in pop and rock — there’s no doubt that viewers will be treated to a very special Grammy moment.”
