Fans selected the three songs during the first phase of voting which ended Sunday, Jan. 24. The second and final phase of voting will continue until Bon Jovi's performance on THE 52nd ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS on Jan. 31. There is no registration to vote and fans may vote as often as they wish. Additionally, a 30-second clip of each song may also be viewed on the Web site.

So that viewers at home can enjoy the unique 3-D portion of the tribute, CBS and Target have partnered to provide millions of free 3-D GRAMMY Glasses. Target stores nationwide will exclusively offer the glasses through Sunday, Jan. 31, so that fans have the opportunity to see the film that was very personal to Jackson. Additionally, the audience at STAPLES Center will share the 3-D experience, wearing the same glasses as those worn by viewers at home.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of "Bridge over Troubled Water" receiving GRAMMY Awards for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year; the song will provide a moving tribute to survivors of the tragic events in Haiti.
