GRAMMY Fact: Bob Marley was posthumously honored with a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001
Bruno's band is still bouncing.
The song includes this important Marley-esque lyric: "The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too/ So while you point your fingers someone else is judging you." Let's hear it!
"Love your brotherman!" is part of the song, too. One love -- we're seeing it onstage.
We've got a lot to catch up on during the commercial break. Feedback, please!
Still feeling the suspense (though breathing now!) and wondering about Best New Artist. It won't be long now. Send a prediction?
Listen up next for a song by folkster newbies the Lumineers, who are one of the candidates for Best New Artist. They'll be followed in a head-to-head performance by the rock god Jack White.
Hey, ho (or make that, ho, hey!) -- here are the Lumineers, putting heartfelt folk flavor into tonight's show.
Fun fact: Five songs with similar titles to "Ho Hey":
"Hi-De-Ho," Blood, Sweat & Tears
"Hey Ho," Dub Syndicate
"Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)," Neil Young
"Hi, Hi, Hi," Paul McCartney And Wings
"La-La (Means I Love You)," The Delfonics
The Lumineers are a five-piece. Simple songs are their signature. And as this particular one proves, simple is in no way a synonym for boring. The style is rustic, but it doesn't seem derivative, which is a neat trick. Pretty genius.
The Lumineers are also up for Best Americana Album tonight. Name of front man: Wesley Schultz. Awesome, unpretentious. Good!
Was that Melissa Etheridge singing along in the audience?
Neyla Pekarek, Lumineers' cellist, joined the band after answering an ad on Craigslist. She's without her cello tonight, looks like.
Best New Artist nominees The Lumineers have everyone in the Staples Center singing along.
Here comes Jack White, putting the genuine back in the title "rock star." Accept no substitutions, could be his motto. So much rock integrity.
