QUICKQUOTE: CARRIE UNDERWOOD

“I just wanted it to be kind of artful and dramatic. There’s so many big performances at the Grammys, and I just like to stand still and sing sometimes. This seemed like the best way to do that and kind of create something visually captivating and beautiful.” Carrie Underwood, explaining the projection-covered dress she wore during her Grammy performance.

JUANES PLANS BILINGUAL ALBUM

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.”
