Maroon 5, Foster the People and The Beach Boys Grammy Performance

The reunited Beach Boys teamed up with Maroon 5 and Foster the People and reminded the world why we missed them with an amazing Grammy performance.

Maroon 5 opened the performance with ’Surfer Girl’ playing a perfect replica redition of the original Beach Boys classic. The only difference between the 1963 track and their cover was Adam Levine’s distinctive falsetto.

Foster the People came next performing ’ Wouldn’t It Be Nice,’ led by frontman Mark Foster.  They didn’t stray too far from the original, which is probably a good thing. Foster the People did an outstanding job, even with their lack of award show experience.

Finally, the Beach Boys themselves took the stage as if they’d never left, singing ‘Good Vibrations.’ Levine and Foster chimed in throughout the song giving it a little extra flare – not that it needed it though.

The Beach Boys brought sunshine back to a Grammy ceremony that was shadowed by darkness following the death of Whitney Houston. And for that, we’re very happy that they’re back in business.
