X-Tina reportedly will join forces with Jennifer Hudson to open the Grammy Awards with Aretha Franklin tribute.
Rumor has it, Christina Aguilera has been booked as the opening act of the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards on February 13. If the rumor is true, it might be her chance to redeem herself after flubbing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl XLV.
Wayne's World suggested X-Tina will team up with Jennifer Hudson for the music's biggest night. Together, the two Grammy-winning artists allegedly will pay homage to veteran singer Aretha Franklin at the beginning of the prize-giving event.
Elsewhere, Entertainment Tonight reported Barbra Streisand has been added to the Grammy performers line-up. A few days before going to the awards show, she will stop by MusiCares Evening/Concert on February 11 to collect her Person of the Year award.
The other performers of this year's Grammys include Justin Bieber, Lady Antebellum, Muse, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Drake, Cee-Lo, Gwyneth Paltrow and Eminem. The presenters are Dierks Bentley, Selena Gomez, Norah Jones, Nicki Minaj, Blake Shelton, and LL Cool J.
In its annual "In Memoriam" tribute, NARAS recruited Mick Jagger and Raphael Saadiq to pay tribute to late soul artist Solomon Burke.
