Is Alicia Keys Going To Duet With Ol’ Blue Eyes At The Grammys?

Feb 8th, 2008 // 7 Comments

 We’re hearing rumors that Alicia Keys’ splashy performance at this Sunday’s Grammys won’t have her singing with Whitney Houston, as previously speculated; instead, she’ll share a stage with Frank Sinatra, or rather a “virtual” version of the nearly-10-years-gone crooner. Said holographic fever dream will be projected onto the stage in a fashion similar to the way Elvis Presley appeared on the American Idol charity special alongside a bejumpsuited Celine Dion. (Ah, memories.) No word on what Ol’ Blue Eyes and Young Piano Fingers will sing yet, but you can bet your copy of Duets that a saleable version of it will make its way to iTunes faster than you can hum “The Lady Is A (Cross-Promotional) Tramp.” [Photo: AP]

    I truly hope that if this happens, Sanjaya Malakar is part of the chorus.

    Young Piano Fingers made me laugh uncontrollably.

    Maybe they’ll do “Ebony and Ivory,” a la Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy.

    I’m holding out for her doing a duet with a virtual G.G. Allin on “Drink, Fight and F**k”

    Dear folks at the Grammys,

    We get it, Alicia Keys is the Black artist y’all love to bump in the comforts of your own home. Stop with “and you should too” campaign already. Jesus!



    P.S. And quit aging her all the g’damn time.

    P.S.S. I swear I’m not a racist.

    When are people going to realize how totally creepy it is for living singers to sing with holograms of dead people?!

    Didn’t CELINE DION perform with a post-mortem Frankie about 7 or 8 years ago?? At least this saves my girl Whitney from another opportunity to embarrass herself.
