Blink-182 are to reteam to present a prize at the Grammy Awards on Sunday - five years after a messy break-up.

The group - Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge - last appeared together onstage in December 2004.

Early in 2005, they announced an indefinite hiatus. Hoppus and Barker went on to form +44 while DeLonge enjoyed success as the frontman of Angels & Airwaves.

DeLonge has made it clear on several occasions that he and Hoppus had fallen out, but the duo rekindled their friendship last year following Barker's plane crash tragedy in South Carolina.

The drummer suffered second and third-degree burns when the Learjet he was a passenger on failed to clear a runway, ran across a road and burst into flames. Four people were killed in the blaze.
