The legendary rock band Chicago is finally getting its day in the Grammy sun. Despite winning Grammys in the past, the band has never performed on the show.

That changes Sunday as the group, which has described itself as "a rock band with horns," performs with Robin Thicke on "Blurred Lines."

Thicke is up for top record of the year honors with "Blurred Lines," and he was keen to have Chicago's signature horns as part of his performance.

Chicago frontman and keyboardist Robert Lamm said Sunday on the Grammys red carpet that it had taken about four months of rehearsals to get it right.

"We've performed all kinds of places in our long career," he said. "To finally be on the Grammys after not being around when we won [the band was on tour] is a real thrill."

Also, Chicago and Thicke fans should know: It's possible that the two will collaborate again in the future.
