Los Angeles - The dance/electronic music phenomenon will be recognised at the Grammys for the first time with an ambitious club segment.

Sunday's performance is set to feature the Foo Fighters, David Guetta, deadmau5 (dead mouse), Chris Brown and Lil Wayne.

And while the Grammys will be held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, the dance segment will take place outside the venue in a tent with about 1 000 fans inside.

Show producer Ken Ehrlich says the goal is to try and "put the home audience in the middle of it".
