Grant, Barrymore to Judge VH1 Contest


The stars of upcoming theatrical feature Music and Lyrics will judge Your Music, Your Lyrics as part of a song-writing contest created by Warner Bros and VH1.

Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore star in Music and Lyrics, which will open nationwide Feb. 14.

From Dec. 26-Jan. 20, contestants wrote, recorded and uploaded original love songs to a special VH1 site, which received nearly 400 entries and tallied 750,000 page views during that period.

Entries are currently being rated by online users until Feb. 2, and the top-rated videos will be judged by a panel of experts from VH1, Grant and Barrymore. The winning song will be selected Feb. 3, and its songwriter will be flown to Los Angeles for the film’s red-carpet premiere, as well as having their song professionally recorded.
