The Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards,.[1] According to the 54th Grammy Awards description guide it is designed for pop recordings by duo/groups or collaborative performances (vocal or instrumental) and is limited to singles or tracks only.[2]

It was one of several new categories for the annual Grammy Awards ceremony to start from 2012. It combines the previous categories for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals, Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Pop Instrumental Performance. The restructuring of these categories was a result of the Recording Academy's wish to decrease the list of categories and awards and to eliminate the distinctions between collaborations and duo or groups.
