Colombian rocker Juanes has been so inspired by performing the songs of his idols at Grammy events this week that he plans to include a few English tracks on his new album.

"Now I can sing in English easier than before," he said backstage after performing a bilingual version of Elton John's "Your Song." "Probably I'm going to do some tracks. Maybe four."

Juanes also performed Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart" at Grammy's MusiCares event honoring The Boss over the weekend.

"It was such a great opportunity for me," he said. "I just met Elton John tonight. I met Bruce last year. ... They are an inspiration to me. I grew up listening to all this music when I was a teenager, and now I understand them a lot more so I love them even more."
