Over the river and through the woods…it may not be quite as momentous as an award-winning visit to Grammy’s house, but “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! Countdown To Music's Biggest Night” is an incredibly close second.
And that miniscule gap closed even more today with The Recording Academy’s announcement that talented two-time Grammy winner LL Cool J will return to host the fete, complete with guaranteed-to-electrify performances from fellow Grammy winners Drake and Keith Urban, as well as a sure-to-be memorable appearance from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
The one-hour special – which takes place at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Friday, Dec. 6 and will be broadcast on CBS from 10-11 p.m ET/PT– will announce nominations for the Grammy Awards in several categories as well as feature performances by past Grammy winners and/or nominees.
Following the one-hour live telecast, guests will experience an exclusive concert by the blistering yet “restrained” Robin Thicke. Additional performers and presenters will be announced shortly.
The road to Music's Biggest Night begins with “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!” and culminates with the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, to be broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
