LL Cool J will be getting a little help from his friends at the “Grammy Nominations Concert Live” on Wednesday night. CBS has announced that Stevie Wonder and Selena Gomez will be on hand to announce the nominees for the big awards show in 2011.
“Selena Gomez & Stevie Wonder headline the presenters for the GRAMMY NOMINATIONS CONCERT LIVE! hosted by LL COOL J on Dec. 1 at 10PM on CBS,” the network tweeted on Monday.
The event also will feature performances by a variety of big-name acts, including Justin Bieber, B.o.B, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Miranda Lambert, during the one-hour show that will go down at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards themselves will air live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 13.
The concert special will cap off a very busy year for the performers, especially Bieber and Perry , who recently received platinum certifications for their 2010 album releases. Perry picked up a double-platinum honor for her feel-good single “Teenage Dream,” the title track off her most recent album.
Bieber earned his first-ever multiplatinum award, as the artists-rights organization RIAA certified sales of his My World 2.0 album at more than 2 million copies. “Baby,” his team-up with Ludacris, also was certified double platinum. Just last Friday, Bieber released a new album, My Worlds Acoustic , to much fanfare. The collection not only features acoustic versions of hits like “Baby,” but also a brand-new track — the inspirational, “Pray.”
