And now a precap for tomorrow’s big event, the show will be hosted again by rapper LL Cool J for the fourth consecutive time. Beyoncé, Sam Smith & Pharrel Williams have the highest nominations (6) followed by Iggy Azalea(4) & others. This time the total number of awards to be presented goes up to 83, highest till date & one more than last year’s. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Adam Levine, Paul McCartney are a few of the 35 Artists that are going to perform in the event.
A bit of the seating plan was revealed by the official Instagram account of the awards @thegrammys and it showed that Ne-Yo will be sitting near Rita Ora. Madonna will be sitting beside Sir Paul McCartney. And a seat in the row behind them will be occupied by Nice Rodgers.
Best American Roots Performance is one of the few new Nominations to be announced. Also a few changes have been made in the Gospel genre field. And some names have been changed. So overall not any significant change, we can say but it’s definitely not going to be the same as before.
So best of luck to all the nominees and you can also catch the pre – telecast ceremony to be held in the afternoon before the big show at the Nokia Theatre near the Staples Center as not all of the awards are going to be awarded live.
