Christina Aguilera Stumbles and Falls at 'The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards' (VIDEO)

Christina Aguilera, 'The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards'Christina Aguilera is having a rough February. In two major television events, she's had a slip-up of one kind or another. At 'The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), it was of the literal variety. And it was at the top of the show.

The Grammys kicked off with a lengthy tribute to Aretha Franklin featuring Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Florence Welch and Yolanda Adams. Luckily for Aguilera, her fall didn't happen during the lengthy musical tribute.

But as the camera was panning back and the women were repositioning themselves for their bow, you could clearly see Aguilera slip and fall to the stage. It might not have been so noticeable if her hair wasn't so brightly blonde.

Taylor Swift: 'I'd Love to Win a Grammy' (VIDEO)

Taylor Swift, nominated for eight GrammysIt's fitting that Taylor Swift talked to 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) on the set where 'The Wizard of Oz' was filmed. As she puts it, "I'm not in Nashville anymore." The pop star has won just about every music award except a Grammy, but that will likely change this Sunday, as she's nominated for eight Grammys!

"I would love to know what that felt like some day, and I'm not gonna be picky about it," she said. "I would take any of the eight. I would take one this year or ten years from now. It feels really wonderful to have eight shots at it." Swift will also be performing at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, Jan. 31, 8PM ET on CBS.

LL Cool J hosts CBS' Grammy Nomination Concert LL Cool J hosted last night's 'Grammy Nominations Concert' on CBS. The program might also be known by its alternate title "Squeezing an hour of programming and using the Grammy's as an excuse."

The show heavily featured the Black Eyed Peas and LL felt inclined to pay homage to the group in the only way he can -- through his style of rap.

CBS giving Couric some primetime specials

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 25th 2009 9:26AM
CBS has had a rocky relationship with their new evening news anchor. The move to hire her after journalist Dan Rather went down in flames like a phoenix blasted out of the sky was heralded as a new dawn without realizing that it sets just as quick.

Couric has earned some respect for her work since Sarah Palin let her stick her brain in a Newton's Cradle and knock it back and forth until her "You betchas" became her "Okie dokies". But the news broadcast is still third in the ratings war and the egg hasn't completely been washed from CBS' face.

So until Palin announces her bid to run for head of Alaska's border patrol to keep those pesky Russians at bay, CBS hopes they can keep what little momentum they have going by doing for Couric what NBC just did for Jay Leno.

Writers can work on the Grammys

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 29th 2008 10:29AM
The Grammy AwardsOn February 10, the Grammy Awards will be shown on CBS with the benefit of writers. The WGA has agreed to let striking writers work on the awards show.

This year is the 50th telecast of the Grammys and it makes sense that the WGA would permit their members to work on this show. After all, the musicians' union is another union and creating music is still just another form of writing.

Writers Guild may block the Grammy Awards

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 15th 2008 5:27PM

This may be the scene in front of the Grammy Awards ceremonyThis year's awards season, barely a month old now, has not been a good one for Hollywood. First, the Golden Globes ceremony was reduced to an Access Hollywood special after members of the Writers Guild and Screen Actors Guild boycotted the show. Now, it looks like the Grammy Awards ceremony may also be in trouble.

It is being reported that the striking guild will probably bar its members from working on the February 10th Grammys telecast. Grammy organizers have yet to ask for a waiver allowing for writers to work on the show. However, according to a WGA spokesperson, a waiver grant would be unlikely. There is no word if the WGA will picket the ceremony. If it does, then SAG members will not cross the picket line. This potentially means another exciting 1-hour infotainment special.

I'm sure members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are sweating a bit now.

The Police to reunite on Grammys telecast

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 30th 2007 2:29PM

The PoliceOne of the big regrets of my life was not seeing The Police in concert when they were together in the late 70s and early 80s. They're one of my favorite bands, and I don't really know why I never made an effort to see them live. I saw Sting live once and it was great, but it wasn't the same.

I might be able to get another chance. There are rumors swirling that the band is going to get together again this summer for a 30th anniversary tour, but before that happens they'll open the Grammy Awards on ABC on February 11. It's official now. Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland will open the show. There are also rumors that they are rehearsing in Vancouver for that world tour, though nothing has been said beyond the Grammys gig.

Now...what song should they play to open the telecast?
