A Grammy for Alex Morgan or Missy Franklin?
By Lizzie Haldane
Missy Franklin dances to "Call Me Maybe" last year at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the U.S. Open.
The bond between music and sport is often blurred -- with musicians wanting to be athletes and vice-versa. While you're watching the Grammys on Sunday night, think of these Olympians who briefly entertain on a different stage: Alex Morgan does her best impression Katy Perry, whose song “Wide Awake” is up for Best Pop Solo Performance. And USA Swimming, highlighted by Missy Franklin, dives into a cover of "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen, which has been nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.
