Published Jan 25, 2008If you didn't have a reason to watch the Grammys, amidst all of the strike talks involving certain artists performing, you do now. Two acts looking to step over the picket lines are Rihanna and - wow! - Morris Day and the Time.
The "Umbrella" superstar will joined by the not-quite-legendary-but-undoubtedly-ironically-cool Morris Day and his band the Time, who will be reuniting, Sly & the Family Stone-style, just for this event. Not many details have been given, but some sort of slick, funktastic medley of both artists' hits should likely take up ten minutes or so of the often painful broadcast.
Other less-intriguing performances will come from Beyonce, Carrie Underwood and Foo Fighters, who will be joined by 20 unsigned musicians as part of an orchestra that will be arranged by special guest conductor, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.
CBS will air the 50th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10 live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
