WATCH: Sofia Vergara Makes a Sexy Surprise Appearance at the GRAMMYs

Pitbull brought out a number of guests to close the 2016 Grammys with an energetic, dance-filled performance of two songs: His hit "El Taxi," off his Spanish-language album Dale and his new single, "Bad Man," with Travis Barker, Joe Perry and Robin Thicke.

With the latter song just released on Sunday it would seem to be the more eagerly anticipated Grammy performance of Pitbull's two songs, but the Cuban-American rapper brought out a special guest for "El Taxi."

After the lyric in which he references Sofia Vergara, the actress herself appeared, popping up from under the stage, wearing a cardboard taxicab and taxi-driver cap, which she removed to reveal a sparkly gold outfit. Vergara and Pitbull then danced together.
