This year's 'Grammy Moment' will be with Foo Fighters

Perhaps you recall the hokey 'My Grammy Moment' contest last year hat culminated in a young singer sharing the stage briefly with Justin Timberlake? Well, the gimmick was successful enough that they're doing it again this year. The star you can play with: Foo Fighters. ...



The Recording Academy, CBS Interactive and YouTube will present the second installment: "My Grammy Moment" 2008 for the 50th annual Grammy Awards, scheduled to be broadcast live at 7 p.m. Feb. 10 on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

And they're not looking for singers so much as they're after musicians. If you're an unsigned "instrumentalist" (i.e., rock guitarist), upload a 60-second video of yourself wailing away onto YouTube's official contest channel.

The top 45 submissions will be determined by a Grammy Blue Ribbon Panel, with the public voting and representatives of The Recording Academy to narrow the field to up to 20 semi-finalists who will perform with the Foo Fighters as part of an orchestra during the Grammys. The voting public will then select one winner to be the featured instrumentalist.

Performers and presenters for the Grammys will be announced in the coming weeks.
