About two thirds of the way through last night's endless Grammy ceremony, Justin Timberlake ambled onstage for the second time, this time to flank Recording Academy CEO and inveterate pirate-scolder Neil Portnoy.

Yesterday, the Boss came to town. Bruce Springsteen delivered his SXSW Keynote Address in the afternoon (watch below), and in the evening, he and his E Street Band played their much-touted SXSW show.

Watch Bright Eyes & Tom Morello Do “Arienette” and “Road To Joy” Live

A couple of days ago, Bright Eyes brought out guitar icon Tom Morello during its set at the Ottawa Folk Festival for a rendition of Fevers & Mirrors song "Arienette."
