Grammys Add Fogerty, Fergie, Possibly Michael Jackson

February 5, 2008 4:10 PM ET

The Grammy performance roster continues to add talent, as John Fogerty will perform with rock legends Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis in the "Cornerstones of Rock" portion of the ceremony. Fergie will take the stage alongside John Legend, while Josh Groban will duet with Andrea Bocelli. On the presenter front, box office queen Miley Cyrus, Ludacris, Chris Brown and Lyle Lovett will take turns reading the teleprompter. And those week-old rumors of Michael Jackson appearing at the awards show may be true, but Jacko reportedly vows he won't take part in a planned Thriller anniversary performance with Kanye West, Fergie and Akon because he didn't have enough time to rehearse. The Grammys are set to air, writers' strike-free, this Sunday, February 10th.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
