Morning click: "We Are the World," take two, Grammy ratings skyrocket
- The day after Sunday's Grammys many of the music industry's biggest stars joined forces to recreate the '80s benefit hit "We Are the World," this time as a Haiti earthquake relief benefit. Our Chris Richards is on the scene and will have a story soon. His Twitter updates to this point have told us that "It actually sounds kind of awesome so far. Based on the ten second blips we're hearing" and "Lil Wayne says he did the Bob Dylan line. Awesome." Stay tuned.
- As for the Grammys, Sunday's telecast scored the highest ratings since 2004, with an average of 25.8 million viewers. That's a 35% increase over last year's numbers. The boost is attributed to the performances of popular young stars such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.
- In local news, the soon-to-open U Street Music Hall announced its first booking, a March 17 show with Brussels-based DJ duo Aeroplane. So that should give you a general idea of when the club -- operated by standout local DJs Jesse Tittsworth and Will Eastman -- will be open for business.
