Seating Assignment

It seems the Grammy people have figured out that the quickest way to get Bono to the stage at tonight’s Grammy Awards ceremony is to put him in the aisle seat, where there will be fewer people to climb over and kiss on his way to the podium. With U2 up for five awards, Bono is sure to make a few trips to the stage — well, at least we’re rooting that he and his bandmates will. In addition to (hopefully) picking up some golden gramophone statuettes tonight, U2 will be performing “One” with Mary J. Blige. The Edge will also be a part of a musical tribute honoring New Orleans and Southern music with an “all-star supergroup” that includes Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello.
