Will Britney Spears show up at the Grammys?

The 53rd Annual Grammy awards air Sunday night, and as usual, the show will rock, producer Ken Ehrlich promises CNN.

For starters, there's a tribute to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin featuring Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Yolanda Adams and Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine.

"Every one of these women can sing, and we wanted to keep it all women because Aretha broke so many barriers and so many boundaries for women that this is a little payback," says Ehrlich, adding that they'll perform hits such as "Respect" and "Natural Woman."

Love was in the air on 'Glee'

"Glee" was bitten by a love bug on Tuesday night.

It seems like everyone was crushing on everyone else during the Valentine's Day episode: Rachel was loving Finn; Finn was loving Quinn; Quinn was torn between Finn and Sam; Kurt is still smitten with Blaine and Blaine had the hots for a dude who worked at The Gap.

But the award for the possible power couple award absolutely has to go to Puck and Lauren. Being a woman of substance myself, I loved watching Lauren break Puck down in his attempts to woo her.

Lady Gaga denied entry to old NYC pad

You can't go home again. That's the lesson Lady Gaga learned when she was denied access to her old apartment while taping her upcoming appearance on CBS's "60 Minutes."

As part of her profile piece, Gaga decided to make an unannounced visit to the New York City studio where she lived for three years as a struggling singer. Standing outside the building with anchor Anderson Cooper, she pressed all of the buttons on the buzzer, hoping someone would let her in.

"We're going to do it the New York way," she tells Cooper. "Someone will listen."

Julia Roberts to play evil queen in 'Snow White'

“The Brothers Grimm: Snow White,” which puts a “new, edgy and modernized spin on the original classic fairy tale,” according to a Relativity release, is due out in 2012.

“Julia was our first and only choice to play the Queen,” producer Ryan Kavanaugh said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “She is an icon, and we know that she will make this role her own in a way that no one else could.”

Palace nixes 3-D broadcast of royal wedding

So much for trying to catch the bouquet! Plans to broadcast Prince William and Kate Middleton's April 29 wedding in 3-D have fallen flat, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The main problem? The enormous Westminster Abbey just isn't big enough to accommodate the extra cameras.

"I'm afraid I have to say that we have decided not to progress with 3D coverage of the service on this occasion," Patrick Harrison, press secretary to Prince Charles, said in an email to the BBC, ITV news provider ITN and Sky News.
