The FOO FIGHTERS are searching for an undiscovered musician to join them on stage at the 2008 Grammy Awards.
The rockers have launched the My Grammy Moment contest to find a string, woodwind or brass player ahead of next month’s (Feb08) ceremony.
Entrants must submit a 60-second video of them playing the band’s recent single The Pretender by midnight on 20 January (08).
A panel of judges will then select 45 finalists who will go on to face a public vote to decide who will join the group for their orchestral performance at the event on 10 February (08).
The Pretender is nominated for Best Song at this year’s awards, while the band is also tipped to receive the accolade for Best Rock Album for last year’s
(07) Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace.
Justin Timberlake was the first artist to be featured in the My Grammy Moment competition last year (07), when he invited singer Robyn Troup to join him onstage.
