Winners at the annual pre-telecast for the Grammy awards are warned to move it or lose it when it comes to acceptance speeches, and Steve Martin took the advice literally.
Martin fast-jogged to the stage after winning Best American Roots Song for his collaboration with Edie Brickell, “Love Has Come for You.”
Martin made it to the stage before realizing he’d left Brickell far behind. He turned around, fetched her and walked the last 50 feet the second time.
“We are truly stunned. I can speak for Edie, and I will,” Martin joked.
Country star Willie Nelson is known for his outlaw image, and he got a bit philosophical when asked about Justin Bieber’s recent arrest.
“He’ll be all right,” said Nelson of the 19-year-old pop star. “Let him grow up, and then we’ll talk about him.”
Nelson has been arrested several times for marijuana possession.
He appeared on the red carpet Sunday before the Grammys with his buddies Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard. The three country legends are making another album together.
The man whose remix genius helped create a hit for Lana Del Rey says he may be working his magic soon for Miley Cyrus.
Producer Cedric Gervais says Cyrus asked him to remix her upcoming single “Adore You.”
Gervais won the best remixed recording Grammy Sunday for his work on Del Rey’s first top 10 hit, “Summertime Sadness.”
The French remixer said Cyrus personally called him to help with her song, which he said was “cool.”
Gervais has never met Del Rey, though their song has become an international success. The 34-year-old said he normally meets the artists he works with, but “it doesn’t matter if you meet them or not. It’s the song that matters.”
Cyrus has performed covers of “Summertime Sadness” at live shows.
Sarah Hyland of the ABC sitcom “Modern Family” dropped by the Grammys to cheer on pal Taylor Swift, whose album “Red” is up for album of the year.
Hyland, 23, who plays Haley Dunphy on the show, wore a short black-and-white dress with black cage heels.
“I am a music head,” she said. “I love all types of music, from Kanye to Taylor.”
Matt Berninger had some good-natured fighting words for his competitors in the alternative album category at the Grammys.
“We will rub it in their faces if we win!” joked Berninger, frontman for the indie rock band The National, a few hours before the awards show.
The National was nominated for its album “Trouble Will Find Me” against albums by Neko Case, Nine Inch Nails, Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend.
