Disney promotes'Maleficent' song at Grammys

Posted: 26 Jan 2014 08:00 PM PST

Disney's Maleficent takes advantage of Grammys with Lana Del Rey song.

DISNEY used the Grammys to promote Maleficent with a new version of Once Upon A Time, performed by Lana Del Rey.

The song, featured in the end credits of Maleficent, bowing May 30, was introduced during a 90-second sneak peek of the movie during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

Del Rey's version of the song is available for a limited time, only on Google Play, Google's online store through Feb 3.

Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone.

Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king's newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realises that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. – Variety Media/McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk wins record of the year at Grammys

Posted: 26 Jan 2014 08:10 PM PST

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - French electro music duo Daft Punk won the coveted record of the year Grammy on Sunday for Get Lucky, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. 

"I bet France is really proud of these guys right now," Williams said on behalf of the Gallic pair, who took to the stage with their trademark helmets.

"I suppose the robots would like to say thanks," he said. The pair made no comment from behind their shiny black visors. 

They beat rivals rockers Imagine Dragons with Radioactive, Kiwi singer Lorde with Royals, Hawaiian pop star Bruno Mars with Locked Out Of Heaven and Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Williams again with Blurred Lines

Earlier the French pair, in their first TV appearance in six years, had turned the 56th annual Grammys into a giant disco, performing their mega-hit with Williams and veteran star Stevie Wonder. 

Music's A-listers in the first few rows of the audience danced along as the duo appeared inside a mocked up recording booth, backing up Wonder and Williams. 

Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr could be seen swaying, as were hip hop's first couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, Katy Perry and many others. 

The last TV appearance by Daft Punk - real names Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter - was in 2008, also at the Grammys.

Yoko Ono in Beatles family reunion at Grammys

Posted: 26 Jan 2014 10:52 PM PST

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The surviving Beatles on Sunday reunited in spirit with their late bandmates at the Grammys as Yoko Ono danced to the jamming of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

The two living members of the Fab Four were in attendance to receive an award for lifetime achievement for the Liverpool band, widely considered among the most influential acts in music history.

As Starr took the stage to join McCartney on his song Queenie Eye, Ono - widow of the late John Lennon - swayed back and forth in the crowd in her trademark dark shades and black hat.

Their son Sean Lennon, who bears a striking resemblance to his slain father with his glasses and unkempt hair, danced respectfully next to his mother.

Olivia Harrison, the widow of fellow late Beatle George Harrison, and the wives of McCartney and Starr were also in attendance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Starr, sporting a red-and-black polka dot shirt, also separately performed the song Photograph.

Ono and Harrison later took the stage to present the Grammy for album of the year, which went to French electro duo Daft Punk for Random Access Memories.

Joining in presenting the award, singer Alicia Keys noted that past Grammys for best album went in 1973 to George Harrison's The Concert for Bangladesh, which raised funds for the war-torn new country, and to John Lennon and Yoko Ono for Double Fantasy, released just before Lennon's murder in 1980.
