The Black Keys will bring some New Orleans flavor to their Grammys performance Sunday when Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band join them onstage. Dr. John is up for Best Blues Album for Locked Down, which Black Keys singer Dan Auerbach produced. The pair celebrated the record's release last April when they jammed together at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The Black Keys are up for five awards, including Album of the Year for El Camino.
