Elton John & Leon Russell on The Late Show with David Letterman

As the GRAMMY Awards and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony approach, expect to see a little more of Leon Russell. Russell will join Elton John on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' as musical guest next Wednesday, Feb. 9.

Elton John will chat with Letterman on the Feb. 9 show, along with actor Ty Burrell. Russell will then join John, presumably to perform the GRAMMY-nominated song "If It Wasn't For Bad."

John has been making the interview rounds, with a number of developments of his own: the birth of his son Zachary on Christmas Day, 2010, the release of Gnomeo and Juliet, the animated film he produced with partner David Furnish, and an upcoming appearance as presenter at the Rock Hall induction.

The 'Late Show with David Letterman' is televised on the CBS Television Network at 11:35 p.m.-12:37 a.m., ET/PT nightly. The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards will air on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m ET/PT, also on CBS. Elton John and Leon Russell are nominated for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for "If It Wasn't For Bad," the first single from their recent hit album The Union.
