David Bowie & Lady Gaga
Happy Presidents Day! Which is doubling this year as Grammy Award day as well. Or as I like to call it The Lady Gaga David Bowie Tribute.
Since I really have no drive to write about award shows I went to my friends at E!Online and spied a write-up called "7 Things You Need To Know" about tonight's celebration.
I only found four of them worth re-printing, one of the things I did not include was about Kanye West. Send me Thank You notes later. Here are the Top 4 points of interest that I found worthwhile about music's biggest night! Source E!Online:
|It's Me, Gwen Stefani|
1. Music History: Just days after premiering her new single "Make Me Like You,"The Voice coach Gwen Stefani will collaborate with Target to produce a music video on live television. Set to air during a four-minute commercial break, the finished product will feature multiple sets and real-time costume changes as well as "special surprises for fans."
2. The Year of 1989: With seven impressive nominations for the evening, fans and critics alike believe Taylor Swift will walk away with an award before the night is over. But in even more good news, the "Shake It Off" singer is opening up the show with a top-secret performance. Now if only we knew if boyfriend Calvin Harris was coming too.
3. Honoring a Legend: Just a few weeks after the passing of David Bowie, the Grammys will pay tribute to the "Modern Love" singer with the help of the one and only Lady Gaga. After slaying the National Anthem at last weekend's Super Bowl, Mother Monster will perform an "experiential" tribute for late rock star, who will also be receiving a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award. "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed—almost in a single moment—we knew we had to change direction," Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She's perfect for it."
4. Hello Superstar: While she may not be nominated this year—don't worry, there's an explanation why—Adele is still expected to attend the show where she will deliver a performance that may just be a tease to her upcoming tour across the country. For all those fans who couldn't score their tickets to the concert in your neck of woods, this may just be your lucky night.
