[CELEB NEWS] Beyonce, Lady Gaga & Taylor Swift Set To Battle It Out At Tonight's Grammy Awards With Combined 23 Nominations Between Them!
LOS ANGELES – Besides being one of the most popular singers on the planet, Beyonce has gotten plenty of accolades over her career. Now a veteran, she's won a caseload of Grammys for her solo work and also with Destiny's Child.
What she hasn't won, however, is the prestigious album of the year trophy, despite being nominated once before.
That may change on Sunday. The superstar is nominated for a leading 10 Grammys, including record of the year for "Halo," song of the year for her anthem "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" and album of the year for her multiplatinum third CD, "I Am ... Sasha Fierce."
Of course, she faces tough competition — especially from two newer divas.
Taylor Swift isn't far behind in the Grammy nominee count with eight. She too is up for the evening's three top awards:
"Fearless" is nominated for album of the year, and her song "You Belong With Me" is nominated for both record and song of the year. Swift, whose country album became the most popular album of any genre last year, has captured top awards at just about every awards show she's been at, from the Country Music Association Awards to the MTV Video Music Awards. The 20-year-old, who is only on her second album, could emerge as the top winner at the Grammys as well.
Lady Gaga is another relative newcomer up for top awards. Although she was disqualified from the best new artist category because her first single, "Just Dance," was released last fall and nominated for a Grammy, the Recording Academy more than made up for her exclusion in that category. Gaga is up for five Grammys, and like Beyonce and Swift, is also up for record and song of the year, for "Poker Face," and album of the year for "The Fame."
Rounding out the album of the year category is the Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D.," and the Dave Matthews Band's "Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King." The latter album was the band's first release since the death of founding member and saxophonist LeRoi Moore.
All are expected to perform on Sunday's show, to be aired on CBS from Staples Center. But the show won't be all about the nominees. There will be a special 3-D tribute to Michael Jackson; a video clip he made of "Earth Song" will be shown, as Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Smokey Robinson sing along.
Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli will celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Bridge Over Troubled Water's" Grammy wins with a special performance of the classic song, which will be made available on iTunes. The proceeds will be donated to Haiti relief.

MJ's Kids To Accept His Lifetime Achievement Award At Grammys. Joe Jackson Upset At Not Being Consulted, Asks "Can You Believe This Crap?".
Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Michael Jackson's two eldest children are scheduled to take the stage this weekend to accept the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their father, Jackson family sources said.
It would be the first public appearance for Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, since their dramatic appearance at the memorial service 12 days after their father's death.
"The whole world is waiting to see these children blossom," said Brian Oxman, a lawyer for Joe Jackson.
Two sources close to the family said the youngest, 7-year-old Blanket, was not expected to appear, although they suggested that might change.
Contrary to some media reports, the sources said there was no plan for the children to sing or dance at the show.
The Recording Academy, which presents the Grammy Awards, will honor the late pop star with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Special Merit Awards ceremony Saturday evening in Los Angeles.
The San Alfonso del Mar condo complex in Algarrobo, Chile, about 70 miles west of Santiago, has drawn the Pacific in its courtyard.
It may not only fulfill your dream of having a deep swim in the salty water but present calm and beautiful oceanic setting as well.The fabricated saltwater pool or call it a paradise on the earth, measuring well over one thousand yards in length and 115 feet in depth, is always filled with 66 million gallons of water and spreads across 20 acres. Apart from swimming and the beautiful background, the pool also offers a temperature controlled indoor beach, sailing, kayaking and scuba diving for adventurous travelers. Moreover, water shuttle service for a quick move from one corner of the resort to the other is always at your service.
As the wonders and marvels takes some effort and time and cannot be shaped overnight, the pool at the San Alfonso del Mar condo complex took five years and about $1.96 Billion, not a less amount in any way, to amaze the world. Apart from this $3.91 Million in annual are required to maintain the computerized suction and filtration system that keeps pouring the fresh seawater into the Guinness Book record holder man-made pool.
Fernando Fischmann, developer of the 'pulse oxidation' system for the pool, has plans to build about half a dozen such super-pools for some big backyards across the world, including Argentina, Panama and last but not the least the wonder city, Dubai.
