During the ceremony / television show (broadcast by CBS) a song by the two beatlesian Lennon / McCartney of December 1969, "Across the Universe" was sung live, with the participation of various singers and musicians, including Bono, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Brian Wilson, Alicia Keys, Tim McGraw, Scott Weiland, Billie Joe Armstrong, Steven Tyler, Alison Krauss, Velvet Revolver and others.
The song was originally donated to the WWF who had created an album to raise funds, 35 years later the same song available for download on the iTunes Music store always at 99 cents, but all proceeds will go to the victims of the Asian tsunami through the Unicef ??collection. The rights holder Sony / ATV Music has decided not to collect even a penny.
A Beatles song then featured on the iTunes Music Store despite the legal hostility that stands between the two Apple.
The CBS shows in Real streaming format both the audio / video recording of the live song and the backstage, as well as having banners on the site that refer to the download of the song from the iTunes Music Store.
Currently no version of the iTunes Music Store, other than the US and Canada, offer the download of the "royalty free" song, including Italian iTMS, unfortunately (although the quality of the song is not the most memorable).
Among the winners of this edition we point out John Mayer in two categories: Song Of The Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, this young musician and singer had attended during the last (in our second gallery of the keynote two representative images, with Jobs who has in the background the name of the singer prophetically supported by the Grammy symbol gramophone and this one where he is seen playing with the CEO of Apple on his side) and the penultimate edition of the Macworld Expo in San Francisco to present the GarageBand program of the iLife suite.
