SHOW BITS: 'Weird Al' Yankovic's Grammy ritual

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every musician has his or her own Grammy ritual.

For "Weird Al" Yankovic, if he wins he takes the gramophone-shaped trophy and attaches it to his head.

"I'm kind of like a Grammy unicorn," says the accordion-squeezing funnyman, who won his fourth Grammy on Sunday.

Yankovic, who won his first Grammy 30 years ago, says it's still a thrill just to be in the running.

"I never get jaded about it," he said.
