ET was on the red carpet for a star-studded pre-Grammy event that honored music legend Bruce Springsteen and caught up with Sting, who talked about his special Grammy performance with Rihanna and Bruno Mars.
At the event, the 63-year-old Springsteen was given the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year award during a special event in Los Angeles. We spoke with some of the attendees, who celebrated Springsteen's exceptional artistic achievements and philanthropic activities.
"I think it's a secret who I'm singing with," joked Sting initially about the much-anticipated Grammy show performance. "It's fantastic, they're both such fantastic artists, with great enthusiasm and energy -- but I'll keep my end up too."
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill both said they are still in awe of Springsteen's talent and longevity. "He stands up there and gives everybody a voice," McGraw said. "And when somebody hears him sing, and they're in concert, or they hear a record and they raise their fist and say 'he's singing for me."
Proceeds from the annual MusiCares tribute - now in its 23rd year - provide essential support for music industry individuals in need of financial, medical, and personal help.
Watch the video for more interviews, including Crystal Harris, who dishes on her new married life with Hugh Hefner. The tribute concert portion of the night was sponsored by Acura/ELS Studio.
