JOHN LEGEND'S GRAMMY STATUE BROKEN BY NEPHEW

John Legend received a replacement Grammy statuette after he performed an intimate show for the organisation's staff - because the original one was broken.

The six-time Grammy winner was left heartbroken when a visiting nephew accidentally broke one of his prized trophies for the hit album Get Lifted.

John Legend posted a photo of the damaged trophy on his Twitter.com page in August (10), lamenting, "Casualty of the nephews staying with me. I hope they send replacement grammys!"

It's not the norm for Grammy bosses to replace broken awards - but they made an exception for John Legend.

He explains, "I did a favour for the Grammys; I did a show at their offices - and at the end of the show they surprised me with a replacement Grammy."
