The News I've been waiting for!

U2 </b>(music), Mary J. Blige </b>(music), Faith Hill </b>(music), Keith Urban, Christina Aguilera </b>(music), Herbie Hancock </b>(music) and Jamie Foxx have all signed on to give collaborative performances at next month's Grammy Awards ceremony

U2 and Blige will hit the stage together for a joint performance, as will Urban and Hill, Foxx and West, and Aguilera and Hancock.

Organizers did not specify what songs the artists would perform, but it's a good bet that previous Grammy winngers U2 and Blige will offer up a rendition of the Irish rock group's classic hit "One," which Blige covered on her most recent album, "The Breakthrough."

Foxx is featured on West's 2005 smash hit "Gold Digger," and Aguilera sang on the Grammy-nominated cut "A Song for You," which appeared on Hancock's latest album, "Possibilities."

U2, whose trophy case already houses 15 Grammy trophies, is in contention for five more at this year's ceremony: Album of the Year and Best Rock Album ("How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb"); Song of the Year and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals ("Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"); and Best Rock Song ("City of Blinding Lights").

Additional performers and presenters will be announced shortly, according to a press release.

The 48th annual Grammy Awards ceremony takes place Feb. 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will air live on CBS-TV.

Hooray! Now I can torture my husband with my U2 obession and my love of award shows. He hates award shows, but I told him the Grammys are a must for me to watch.
