Is the Red Carpet show in HD anywhere this year?

Any further news on the possible Michael Jackson performance towards the start of the show? I'm doubting it, but the rumor is out there.

That's good news My local CBS does a horrible upconversion to "faux 5.1" on all 2.0 programming.

Ya, just wait until an act really causes tons of constant video changes. I'm expecting my local affiliate video to fall apart, because they also have a SD stream to rob HD bandwidth.
