Queen of hip-hop soul Mary J. Blige will not show up at the big 50th Anniversary of the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, but the six time award winner (who has three nominations this year) has big plans to be on TV this month.According to a rep, Blige has a slew of major TV shows -- 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' 'Rachael Ray,' and 'TV One on One with Cathy Hughes' -- in the works, as her record label, Geffen, roles out her new single 'Hurt Again,' from her latest platinum-selling opus, 'Growing Pains.'The 'No More Drama' diva will also appear on two episodes of the multiple Emmy Award winning soap opera 'One Life to Live' on Feb. 15 and Feb. 18.
On the Valentine's Day themed episodes, Blige will sing two songs at the surprise birthday party for character Starr Manning, daughter of the town's millionaire villain.And to cap off the month, 'VH1 Storytellers: Mary J. Blige' will premiere Feb. 25 a 8 p.m. ET/PT. Taped in front of a live studio audience at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom last month, the hour long show will feature Blige performing songs from 'Growing Pains' in addition to past hits.

Following in the 'Storytellers' format, viewers will get a unique opportunity to hear the inspiration and stories behind each song.No word on a tour yet, but something tells me that she – as one of the most engaging live performers of her generation – will have something jumping off in the very near future.
