CBS Grammy Nominees Special
February 19 & 21, 2000
    As you know, Tori was nominated twice for the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, which took place on February 23, 2000. She sadly lost. (Find out more details about this here.) Before the awards were handed out, CBS aired a special which was apparently called Grammy Nominees, although TV Guide called it Grammy Countdown. Basically CBS featured many of the artists who were nominated, and there was a segment on Tori that included a short interview clip. It aired on February 19, 2000 and again early in the morning on February 21, 2000. Thanks to Jonathan Matthews, Tracy Streimish and Jackie Crispell for telling me about it. Here is a detailed report from Jonathan:

    They highlighted all of the nominees, and Tori was the second one. They showed the "Bliss" video throughout and when Tori talks they showed her speaking, of course. I have no idea where this interview took place or when, sorry!)

    Announcer: A funny thing happened to Tori Amos when she started to compile her first ever live concert album. A crop of new songs just wouldn't leave her alone.

    Tori : The new songs started to barge in and you know when they're walking in the room. They're like terrorists.

    Announcer: The result, "to venus and back," a two disc tour de force through Tori's life, from her wild rock and roll days in Los Angeles to her marriage to her long time producer.

    Tori: I'm not 23 years old and completely confused. At 36, being in love is the most hardcore thing that I can experience right now.

Tori/Alanis iN DEMAND Pay Per View Special
February 19, 20, 24, 2000

    I have added over 200 photos from the Tori/Alanis iN DEMAND pay per view concert. (Most are of Tori and are divided by song, and 15 are of Alanis.) in my TV/Radio Archives. The concert debuted on Saturday, February 19, 2000. It aired at 8:00PM ET and again at 11:00PM ET that evening. It also aired again on Sunday, February 20, 2000 and Thursday, February 24, 2000. The show was 3 hours long and showed both Tori and Alanis' set in their entirety. They did not cut anything out, including some of the problems Tori had toward the end of her set. The concert they showed took place in Las Vegas, NV on September 24, 1999 during the 5 1/2 Weeks Tour. (You can read reviews of that show here.) Before the first showing on February 19, 2000, they aired a countdown show from 7:30PM until 8:00PM ET which gave some background on both artists. (This was only done before the first showing, and not before the later showings. I did not see it because of technical difficulties with my cable provider.) The program cost $19.95 and was very much worth it!
