Coldplay will be performing a duet performance of single Viva La Vida with Jay-Z, according to the Canadian Press today. They report:
Sir Paul McCartney played a couple of covers and indulged the small crowd on hand in a lengthy jam, while Coldplay frontman Chris Martin cracked jokes and hung around afterwards to pose for pictures the night before Sunday's show.
Chris Martin was good-humoured in his dealings with the crowd. Sitting at a piano on a circular stage in the middle of the Staples Center auditorium, he noodled around on the keys while waiting for the go-ahead from producers. "I'm just trying to show off my skills," said Martin, whose band has seven nominations - second only to New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne. He was joined at the piano by New York rapper Jay-Z, who dropped a verse then faded away as Martin joined his Coldplay bandmates onstage for 'Viva La Vida.' Though Martin was troubled by the mix - "sounds very strange," he said - he kept the session casual.
