CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s PROJECTOR DRESS

Carrie Underwood used the huge skirt of her gray dress as a digital projector during her Grammy Awards performance.

As she sang “Blown Away” and ” Two Black Cadillacs” various images flashed on her dress.

“They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days,” she said backstage, holding her trophy for best country solo performance. “We had a dress especially made. I said I should take that home and we can watch movies on it.”

Underwood said she had to stand in a specific spot on the Staples Center stage to make it work.

“It took a lot of precision,” she said.

KEEP ON BIEBVIN’

Justin Bieber can’t catch a break.

Not only was the superstar singer not nominated for a Grammy, but a Ustream session that Bieber launched at the same time as the ceremony Sunday to answer questions from fans crashed because it was overloaded. The technical snafu immediately began trending on Twitter, inspiring such popular hashtags as (hash)ThankYouForTryingJustin and (hash)JustinUseRedTube.

Bieber tweeted to fans that “livestream is over capacity it not letting me in the room.” He apparently couldn’t overcome the blunder and later promised to upload a video.
