John Legend has landed himself a truly captive audience.
Legend, the R&B star whose career took off with the 2004 album "Get Lifted," plans to perform an acoustic concert at 30,000 feet to promote the 50th anniversary of the Grammy Awards. The plan is for Legend, who won the Grammy for the best new artist of 2005, to serenade 50 contest winners and their friends aboard a Feb. 7 flight from New York to Los Angeles, where the Grammys are scheduled to take place Feb. 10. The flight will be aboard a Boeing 757 in the Delta Airlines fleet that has been painted with the award show's gramophone insignia.
The Grammys will be aired on CBS. Websites of the network's affiliates are hosting the contest to win a seat aboard the flight and tickets to the show at Staples Center. Locally, that would mean fans can enter at www.cbs2.com.
