The Grammys Will Be Picketed, Will It Go On Without Huge Artists?

Posted By on January 15, 2008

Yesterday we reported that the writers strike may cause the Grammys to be cancelled by having a picket outside and calling on artists who have screen history to join, causing the Grammys to lose key performances and appearances and eventually cancel. Now, it is being confirmed that the writers will have a picket line at next month's 50th Anniversary Grammy Award ceremony and many musicians won't cross it.

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) said yesterday that it wont give CBS a pass for the ceremony further saying that anyone who attends the Grammys will have to cross a picket line. This means the Grammys may have to go on with such huge artists as Beyonce, T.I., 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Usher, Queen Latifah, Fergie, Justin Timberlake and Fantasia, as they have screen & acting experience.
