Kanye and Amy Winehouse performing at Grammys, just not together

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

The show's three hours long. We know they hardly give out any awards during the telecast anymore, but we're at a loss to understand how they're going to cram in all the performances announced for this Sunay's Grammys. At least in three hours. Hold on for a long night.

But a cool one, if it all comes together. Because today's performer announcement is one we've already discussed here on the Gold Rush, twice, though it's shaking out a bit differently than originally planned: Chicago rap kingpin Kanye West will perform, as will troubled singer Amy Winehouse. They just won't be performing together.

Initially, they were planning a duet. Wino's drug problems led her to a London rehab clinic (oh, the irony), and now she can't get a visa to enter the United States. So she'll be performing from London via satellite. Kanye, meanwhile, will be on stage at he L.A. ceremony, where later, if there's any justice, he'll be collecting at least a couple of trophies.

Also announced as performers today: John Mayer (zzzzz!) and BeBe Winans. More presenters are added, too: Dierks Bentley, Cuba Gooding Jr., Carole King, Roselyn Sanchez, Usher and current Barack Obama supporter will.i.am.
