Radiohead to play the Grammys!
Well, I guess I'll probably be watching this year for once...from Pitchfork:
"They're up for five awards-- including Album of the Year-- at this year's Grammys. Thom Yorke is promoting the show on billboards and TVs near you. And now sources tell us Radiohead are set to perform at this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, taking place February 8 in Los Angeles. While they've already won two golden gramophones (Best Alternative Album for Kid A and OK Computer), this is the first time they're actually playing the show.
Thom and co. join previously announced performers Coldplay, Lil Wayne, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, the Jonas Brothers, and Katy Perry. What we would give to have some sort of spy cam installed in that backstage area. Knowing Grammy's penchant for batshit artist pairings, it seems like that Radiohead/Wayne blowout we hallucinated about last week is closer than ever to reality."
