The 53rd annual Grammy awards are now just five days away! And news related to MUSIC'S BIGGEST NIGHT, (which is Sunday, Feb. 13, if you were wondering) is pouring in.

In case you haven't heard, BARBRA IS GOING TO PERFORM! Last week, I talked to D.C.-based Grammy nominee Carolyn Malachi, and she named Streisand as one of the people she'd most like to meet, and added that she was hoping to hear her sing, as well. Wish granted.

Malachi is one of five D.C. artists nominated for Grammys this year, the others being singer Raheem DeVaughn, electronica artist BT, sound engineer Chad Franscoviak, and, of course, the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown.

If you just can't wait until Sunday to start soaking in the Grammys, you can watch real-time coverage of events leading up to the show on Grammy Live, beginning Friday.

The Washington Post is reporting that Christina Aguilera, who botched the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday, will get to redeem herself this Sunday, by opening the Grammy show.

Lady Gaga, she of the Hello Kitty dress, the meat dress, and the telephone hat , may be outfitted by 27-year-old Irish designer Joanne Power for the awards.

Katy Perry's Grammy performance sounds interesting enough, but will it top the Glee cast's Katy Perry tribute?

Will Eminem finally snag a Grammy for Album of the Year? Maybe, maybe not. 

Clive Davis chops it up with the Los Angeles Times about the Grammys and the music industry.
