Bing looks for some star power

A bunch of celebrities (and some not-so-celebrities) turned up on the red carpet on Tuesday, as Microsoft unveiled a bunch of entertainment features for its search engine.

Microsoft is adding casual games, more TV content, and Zune music and lyrics to the service. Each of several million songs can now be played once for free, with 30-second samples available thereafter. Songs can also be purchased from Amazon, iTunes or Zune.

With Hollywood as the backdrop, Bing used Sunset Boulevard's Soho House as the venue to announce a slew of entertainment features, including the ability to watch TV shows, play games, or listen to full-length songs from within the search engine.
