Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have barely even acknowledged that they got married last June, but they’ll be making their public live performing debut as a couple in a duet at the Grammys on Feb. 13. (Perhaps not coincidentally, J. Lo has a new album, Rebirth, coming out March 1.) Anthony, who is up for two Grammys, collaborated with Lopez on one song on her new album, according to Billboard. He also recorded a duet, ”No Me Amas,” with his future wife back in 1999.

In other Grammy news, an all-star group will unite during the show to perform the Beatles’ ”Across the Universe,” the recording of which will be made instantly available as a benefit single for tsunami relief. (And Grammy producers do mean ”instantly”; the iTunes Music Store will make it available for downloading at 99 cents a pop.) Among those expected to lend their voices are Bono, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Velvet Revolver, Tim McGraw, and Brian Wilson. Streaming video of the performance, as well as rehearsal footage, will also be available at the CBS website. No word on how the song was chosen; it’s refrain ”Nothing’s gonna change my world” seems a little inapt for a response to a devastating tsunami.
