The Grammys

The Grammy Awards lost their credibility years ago.  Considering the last three "Album of the Year" winners were Herbie Hancock, Dixie Chicks, and U2 (most credible of the three), it is apparent that The Academy considers a thin sliver of the recording music pie, if you will.  Yet whatever credibility is lost as awards are handed out this year may be off set by that gained from the impressive list of live performances scheduled for tomorrow...

Radiohead, Coldplay, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, T.I., Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Estelle, Chris Brown, M.I.A., Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, the Jonas Brothers, U2, Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Kenny Chesney, Adele, Sugarland, Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx, Duke Fakir, Terence Blanchard, Neil Diamond, Smokey Robinson, Robin Thicke, Allen Toussaint, Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, John Mayer and Keith Urban.

Yep, there are a lot of people on that list. How will they fit them all in? Tune in at 7pm on CBS to find out.
