The Grammys are this weekend and this year, viewers will get to see one particularly special performance-- not from one of the celebrity nominees, but from the group of Newtown kids who also recently sang at the Superbowl.

Newtown Music Project director Sabrina Post recently revealed that American Idol host Ryan Seacrest will be flying to Connecticut to do a live segment with the children during Sunday's show. Aww…that must be so exciting for them!  

Newtown Music Project director Sabrina Post recently revealed that American Idol host Ryan Seacrest will be flying to Connecticut to do a live segment with the children during Sunday's show. Aww…that must be so exciting for them!  

Post also said that their segment would include a pre-recorded performance of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," which they originally recorded last month and have previously performed on Good Morning America.  But that's not all! The group of 21 kids, some of whom are students at Sandy Hook Elementary, will also be doing a live rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."

Wow, first Good Morning America, then the Superbowl, and now the Grammys. These kids have a busy schedule!  In all seriousness though, I actually love this idea and am really looking forward to seeing their performance. Their version of "Over the Rainbow" is so sweet, but it's also nice to see them take on a more fun, lighthearted song as well! And that track in particular is so popular and upbeat that I think it's a perfect choice, particularly for such young kids. 

Plus, it'll be really interesting to watch since Jepsen herself will be attending the Grammys as a nominee.  I can't wait to see her—and everyone else's—reaction to their performance! In the meantime, I'm wishing them good luck, although I know they'll be great!
