The Gregory Brothers
With Special Guest Antoine Dodson
Billboard Set Time: 1 AM
This Brooklyn group is probably best-known as the Internet sensation behind the "Auto-Tune the News" YouTube series and unlikely hit "The Bed Intruder Song." The track was an iTunes success, racking up sales of 434,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and cracked the Billboard Hot 100, entering at No. 89 the week of Aug. 28, 2010. In addition to the Gregory Brothers' growing Auto-Tuned fame, the band creates soul- and folk-influenced songs.
