While many stars, singers, and celebrities are remembering Whitney Houston now that she has passed, perhaps the most touching tribute/ remembrance thus far was Jennifer Hudson’s stirring and reverent cover of “I Will Always Love You” at Sunday night’s Grammy telecast.

The Grammys are just around the corner! The 52nd annual award show will take place in Los Angeles, CA and air on CBS this Sunday and as always, the event will try to out-do the previous year’s extravaganza. If you haven’t heard yet, there will be a special Michael Jackson tribute in 3-D where select stars will be singing along with a mini-film Jackson had made prior to his death.

Famous comedian Steve Martin, who is also a talented musician and banjo player is competing against some of the best musicians in his field at the 20th International Bluegrass Music Awards this year.
The show is set to air on satellite radio from Nashville on Thursday night and Martin has already shared his excitement of the idea of him winning. In the past, Martin has collected a Grammy and Emmy awards, but Yahoo has reported that he has said that winning a Bluegrass Award “could be better than an Oscar.” Martin’s first musical album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String has topped the bluegrass chart this year.

So, there are some out there who think that Lil Wayne is the greatest rapper out there at the moment. That’s fine. If he’s succeeding at something and getting tons of Grammy nominations, that’s fine too. (Although who cares about who wins The Grammys anymore?) There isn’t bad music. There’s just a lot we don’t particularly dig…
However, when Lil Wayne started pulling “rock n’ roll” stunts, we asked one thing: WHY? He’s not only been hopping on stage with Kid Rock (blah) but he’s also pulling out the guitar during several performances (and playing TERRIBLY) too. Now, we hear that his rock album is ACTUALLY HAPPENING. It’s not just a rumor because according to MTV, Rebirth, is set for release on April 7th. The first single, “Prom Queen,” will start streaming on his MySpace tomorrow, January 27th.

Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke has lent his image to the Grammy Awards publicity campaign. Yorke’s poster ad is a reproduction of his face, construed out of the names of songs, lyrics, albums and artists that influenced him over the years. The ad has been divulged, along with other ads featuring Coldplay, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne.
The Grammys need all the publicity they can get, especially after last year’s appallingly low audiences for the award ceremony. Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and Lenny Kravitz will also be joining the campaign, which will be on TV, radio, online and in print. Its slogan is “Celebrate the Music That Made Us”, and artists were asked to name 10 to 20 artists to form their faces in the ads. If you look closely, it’s possible to recognize a few names!
Full-version Thom York, Coldplay, Kanye West and Lil Wayne ads after the jump: Continue Reading
