The winter months bring lots of cold and snow, but they also bring one of music’s most glamorous nights – The Grammy’s! The star-studded line-up for the show has been announced, and we’ve got the scoop on who will be presenting on January 31 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (and it’s going to be good!)
Taking the stage this year to present awards will be (drum roll, please) Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers — to name a few. Joining those A-listers will be Ke$ha, Kristen Bell, Jeff Bridges and Josh Duhamel and musicians Norah Jones, Ricky Martin, Carlos Santana and ex-Beatle Ringo Starr. Other previously announced performers and nominees are Bon Jovi, Green Day, Lady Antebellum, Maxwell, P!nk and the Zac Brown Band.
The show will feature live sets from all five of the Album of the Year nominees — Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, the Dave Matthews Band and Taylor Swift — as well as a special song from Bon Jovi as part of a contest called “You Pick It, They Play It!”
This year’s show is all about fan interaction, and we couldn’t be happier about that. For Bon Jovi’s set, the New Jersey natives will let fans decide which hit they will play on the show through a contest on the CBS Web site, where they can pick one six songs, “Always,” “Bed of Roses,” “Have a Nice Day,” “It’s My Life,” “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.” Fans are encouraged to upload a 20-second video of themselves singing along to a portion of the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” for a chance to have their video appear as part of the Peas’ performance at the show. We got a feeling this is gonna be a Grammys to remember!
