I'll be honest, generally, i pretty much ignore the Grammy awards. The categories are a jumble and the nominees are (typically) safe and mediocre.
But, this year's performance line-up is fairly impressive. And now, NME is claiming that Radiohead will be joined on stage with the mammoth University of Southern California marching band. Thom Yorke & Co. always put on a good show, and adding that sort of sound could be remarkable.
No word as to what the song of choice will be. They're nominated for "House of Cards" off their last album, In Rainbows, but i can't quite imagine that arranged for USC. We'll see.
If you haven't heard, the 51st Grammy Awards will also feature about-to-pop M.I.A., Coldplay, U2, Kanye West w/ Estelle, Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, and a tween sugar rush dream bill featuring the Jonas Brothers and a supposed merger of jilted Jonai-lovers Miley Cyrus & Taylor Swift (OMFG, dramz).
I may actually have to remember to watch.
