    "Me and my husband rohan are expecting a baby, so i wont be able to perform on Oscar night" , Says Dido

    Dido wont be able to perform her oscar nominated song 'If I rise' on Oscar night :( . She tweeted about this

    "It’s been a month of amazing news for me and now I have some more to share. Me and my husband rohan are expecting a baby (Congratulation :) and we’re beyond happy and excited about it. So as some of you already know, I won’t be able to travel to LA for the oscars ceremony to perform ‘if I rise’.

    Obviously I’m really gutted about not being there – going to the oscars has literally been a dream of mine since I was about 9 - but I’m absolutely thrilled that the wonderful florence welch has agreed to step in and sing the song. I can’t wait to hear her sing it as I’m a huge fan of hers and she’ll sound amazing. I will definitely be watching the whole thing live on tv and texting rollo (who is going to be at the ceremony. But not singing... Thankfully... :-))

    Also, me and AR are going to be filming a video for ‘if I rise’ next week which I’m really looking forward to (wwooooow).
    Love, Dido

    Main Rahman ki tarah sab kucch chhod ke LA mein nahi baith sakta - Bappi Lahiri

    Bappi Lahiri had sent his album for the Grammys, but (fortunately :P )it didn’t get selected in the top 5 nominations! . And look what he saying now ..

    “See, I don’t have the backing of a producer like Danny Boyle. When you are on your own, it is difficult for an Indian to win, My songs Jimmy jimmy and Kaliyon Ka Chaman are well recognised. In 1988, my song Habiba was the first to be on the UK billboard. I got Samantha Fox to India, and when Michael Jackson came to India, he said that he had heard my song Disco Dancer.”
