"I want to meet Leonardo Dicaprio," she tells Spinner. Remind her that this is the Grammys, not the Oscars and she's undeterred. Anything can happen in Hollywood.

If she's going to attract Mr. 'Titanic,' she knows she has to look her best, but when she talked to Spinner shortly before the Awards, she was still weighing her fashion choices. "A lot of designers want to design me something. I'm hoping I can get something from Julian McDonald made. He's Welsh."
Of course any outfit goes looks better with a Grammy as an accessory. She's up for Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album ('Rockferry') and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance ('Mercy[).
And yes, it's nice to be nominated, but Duffy is honest enough to say she'd like to hear her name announced when the envelope is opened. "You get that false modesty: 'It's not about winning.' But with any award, really, you have to say, 'If I took all three home, I would be delighted. If I took home one, I'd still be overjoyed. If I go home empty handed, that's fine.'"
Especially if she has Leo on her arm.
