Elton John & Lady Gaga to collaborate at Grammy’s

Are Elton John and Lady Gaga performing together at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards this Sunday?

According to reports, the Rocket Man is set to take to the stage with the Bad Romance star at the prestigious ceremony which takes place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Monday.

It is not yet known what track the pair might perform, but given their flamboyant stage shows it is expected to be spectacular, a source for Contactmusic said: “Elton and Lady Gaga on the same stage is sure to create fireworks, it could be one of the most memorable Grammy performances of all time.”

The 62-year-old, singer is no stranger to show-stopping Grammy performances. In 2001, he famously joined Eminem for a version of the rapper’s hit Stan, amid controversy as the hip-hop star was widely regarded as homophobic at the time due to the lyrics of many of his tracks.

Other artists performing at the ceremony include Pink, Beyoncé Knowles, Blacked Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift.

Beyoncé heads up the list of nominations after being put forward for 10 honours, while Taylor Swift has eight, followed by Black Eyed Peas on six.

We don’t doubt Gaga will pick up a few style tips from the original ostentatious dresser.

Bruno/Eminem MTV stunt staged

If you haven’t already seen it, check out this Hi-larious clip of Eminem getting a bum-deal from Sacha Baron Cohen at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards.

The outrageous stunt shows the comedian, as his alter-ego ‘Bruno’, suspended above the crowd dressed as an angel in a thong while making his way to the stage.

However, there is a ‘mishap’ and the 37-year-old lands straight in the rappers lap, face to bum, Slim Shady is furious and throws a barrage of expletives before storming off.

What doesn’t come much of a surprise is the confirmation that the prank was pre-rehearsed. The awards writer, Scott Aukerman said: “Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so lets get it out of the way … They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then.”

MTV are no doubt attempting to up-the-anti from the infamous Madonna/Britney kiss, and they have certainly achieved their aim. Bravo.
