When you're invited to a fancy award show, you're expected to dress in a certain way, unless, of course, you're one of the performers. Well, that's not the case for this year's Grammys...
There are only three days left until this year’s Grammy Awards show and the performing artists have already been handed down a list of rules. Instead of dressing provocatively and drawing in the viewers, this year performers (the female ones, at least) will have to cover up any ‘bare breasts’ or ‘buttock cracks’.
The email, which was sent out to all performers, made its way onto Deadline.com this morning, and we have to say, it’s actually quite funny. In fairness, they don’t want PINK (pictured here at the 2010 Grammys) walking out wearing little to nothing again.
Here’s what the email says:

Subject: 55th GRAMMYS: Standard And Practice Wardrobe Advisory
-kindly confirm receipt of s&p standards-
CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic.
Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera.
Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent’s wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.
