Stars to shine at Grammys

The Baltimore Sun

Just in case you haven't encountered any of CBS' 10 million promotional messages, let me be the first to tell you this is Grammy weekend. Excess network hype aside, Sunday's telecast promises to be a good one.

There are big-name performers for just about every pop musical taste. Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift will be appearing together, as will Estelle and Kanye West. There will be a Four Tops tribute segment featuring Duke Fakir, an original member of the group, along with actor-musician Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo.

The lineup also includes: Lil Wayne, Jennifer Hudson, Alison Krauss, U2, the Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood and Sheryl Crow.

This year's broadcast will be streamed live at starting at 4 p.m. Sunday (yes, 4 p.m.) for those who cannot get enough pre-Grammy action. (8 p.m. Sunday, WJZ-Channel 13)

Brit film awards: For a less commercial awards program Sunday night, you might want to try the British Academy Film Awards show on BBC America. If you are an Anglophile, you won't want to miss the British film stars. This year's telecast comes from the Royal Opera House in London. (8 p.m. Sunday, BBC America)

Late-Night Guests: Actress Dakota Fanning appears on Late Show with David Letterman. Actor Frank Langella visits Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
