Cee Lo to Perform With Gwyneth Paltrow and the Muppets

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards are this Sunday, February 13th and the show will include performances from Eminem, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire, Miranda Lambert and Cee Lo Green featuring Gwyneth Paltrow and the Muppets. --Wait, what?-- Yes, really. The Academy Award winning actress and the R&B singer recorded a new version of Cee Lo's Grammy-nominated hit single "F*** You' last month.  The duo also performed together on Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. Cee  Lo says he was "impressed" with Paltrow's voice and liked the rendition of ‘F***  You' that the actress performed on Glee in November, so he invited her to do a  version of it with him in the studio and on the Grammys. Cee Lo and Paltrow will be joined by a roundup of Jim Henson's Muppets. Cee  Lo, a lifelong Muppet fan, approached Henson's son Brian about putting  together a backup band composed of the puppet characters. Henson recently  told MTV that Green and Paltrow will "be backed by puppets who will make up a  very weird and cool band." It's sounds weird for sure, and you can bet that between the children-friendly  puppets and the international audience, this performance of the four letter  word-based song will also be squeaky clean.

1. Bing Crosby and David Bowie - 1977: "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" Bowie appeared on Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas to perform with the 60s crooner. Bowie says he did the duet because his mother liked Crosby.

2. Fergie and Slash - 2011:  "Sweet Child ‘O Mine" Not even Slash could save the awkward debacle that was this year's halftime show.

3. Alice Cooper and the Muppets - 1978:  "School's Out" Eerie rocker Cooper brings a sense of the macabre to the Muppets set.

4. Elton John and Miss Piggy - 1977:  "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" Television rarely gets more fun than this.

5. Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Nelly, Mary J. Blige and N'Sync - 2001: Ten years later, this flashy, star-studded Super Bowl half time show remains far more memorable than the actual game.
