The Recording Academy today announced the 12 finalists in the "My Grammy Moment" campaign, in which unsigned artists vie for a special performance slot on the 49th annual Grammy Awards with Justin Timberlake. Now the public can vote ...
The public can log on to Yahoo! Music, an official online partner of the Grammy Awards, to view the video submissions, bios and photos of the 12 hopefuls, and vote for their Top 5 favorites. The results of this round will be announced on Jan. 17.
After that, fans will continue to narrow the field from five to three finalists by online voting. The top three finalists will be announced during Super Bowl weekend, and each will rehearse with Timberlake during Grammy Week in Los Angeles. The public will choose their favorite performer via online and text message votes during the 49th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 11 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast live on CBS at 7 p.m. The winner will be announced live on the show before his/her "Grammy Moment" with Timberlake.
