As previously announced, current GRAMMY Award nominee Bon Jovi will perform on the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards and participate in a special interactive "You Pick It, They Play It!" fan vote.
As part of the band's performance, fans will have an opportunity to decide which Bon Jovi hit the band will perform during their segment and the final phase of voting has now begun. Viewers may vote for one out of three favorite Bon Jovi songs up until the band's performance on Music's Biggest Night when the results will be revealed live. The three songs were selected from six initial choices by first-round fan voting.
Beginning this week, viewers can log on to CBS.com and vote for one out of the following three hit Bon Jovi songs:
2. "It's My Life"
3. "Livin' On A Prayer"
There is no registration to vote, and fans may vote as often as they wish. Additionally, a 30-second clip of each song may be viewed. Voting will continue up until Bon Jovi's performance on the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards on Jan. 31, when the song with the most votes is revealed.
