Yegods, they're doing the My Grammy Moment gimmick again at this year's show.
Remember these? Two years ago it was win a chance to sing on stage with Justin Timberlake, and last year it was win a chance to perform in the orchestra (rolling eyes here) with Foo Fighters. This year's hapless music celebrity who must share a stage with an "Idol" wannabe is ....
Katy Perry. Which could be interesting. Maybe we'll get another Britney-Madonna moment!
