The Grammy Awards will end this year's ceremony with a bang. A rock supergroup featuring Dave Grohl, Lindsey Buckingham, Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stage is to close Sunday night's telecast from Staples Center, organizers announced Tuesday. "We're incredibly excited about this number," said Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich in a statement to Spin . "There's nothing better than when the Grammys rock out, and to have these artists all together on one stage, doing a number that, when they presented it to us, knocked us out, is going to turn out to be one of those Grammy moments that people talk about for a long time.

Justin Tucker is the man for the Baltimore Ravens. With the game - and quite possibly the entire season - on the line Monday night against the Detroit Lions, Coach John Harbaugh didn't turn to quarterback Joe Flacco, the reigning Super Bowl MVP and the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Bryant's return date remains a mystery, although he suggested it could be before the end of the month. "We'll see," was said by both Bryant and Coach Mike D'Antoni. If Friday or Sunday at home is feasible, the Lakers certainly downplayed the possibility.

The love affair with nail polish that ignited during the recession is still going strong.

Crackle may be good for your Rice Krispies but usually not for your nail polish. When your manicure chips soon after you get it done, it's not just annoying; it's a waste of time and money. Even industry pros aren't immune to the problem.
