It’s Grammys time, and the entire MTV Style team is taking a little New York Fashion Week side-step to focus on one of the most GIGANTIC music + fashion collisions of the calendar year. Tonight, the music community’s best and brightest will gather together in L.A.’s muy famoso Staples Center (a.k.a. that arena Justin Bieber once rented out for a date with Selena Gomez) for a night of doling out awards and performing their faces off. Will Kanye be there? And what about Skrillex? Who will have the most outrageous performance outfit? How tall will Nicki Minaj’s hair be? Who will be delivered in a giant egg? Answers to all this and much more in our live blog.
