She hasn’t been officially announced yet, but sources tell the Los Angeles Times that Beyonce will make a surprise appearance at this month’s Grammy Awards.

The sources tell the paper that the Grammys will mark Beyonce’s first TV appearance in support of her surprise self-titled album, which has turned the music industry on its head. In addition, Madonna will reportedly show up to sing guest vocals during a performance from one of this year’s nominees, although it’s not clear which artist she will join.

So far, the lineup for the evening includes everyone from Kendrick Lamar and Lorde, to Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry, Pink, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Daft Punk.

Of the two female stars, Beyonce has won more Grammys than Madonna, despite the fact that Madonna’s been in the game decades longer than she has.  Madonna’s only won seven, while Beyonce has a whopping 17.

Asked by the Los Angeles Times about these performances, Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich wouldn’t confirm or deny Madonna’s involvement.  He also wouldn’t confirm Beyonce’s appearance but he said, “I love working with [her]. She’s incredible. She is so into what it is that she does and making sure that everybody who sees her walks away saying, ‘wow.’ Should she be on the show this year? I would think that the potential is there for that kind of moment.”

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will air live on Sunday, January 26, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
