The 53rd annual Grammy Awards, called "music's biggest night," will honor the best in 2010's musicians across a spectrum of genres from classical and jazz to pop, rock, hip-hop, country and Latin on February 13 at 8:00 pm EST at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
In addition to the awards presentations, a star-studded line-up of performances at the ceremony will feature the nominees for the top prize, Album of the Year.
Artists set to perform their 2010 hits include Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, B.o.B. and Bruno Mars, Arcade Fire, Muse, Miranda Lambert, and Cee Lo Green.
Eleven-time Grammy winner Eminem leads with ten nominations, including Album of the Year for Recovery, and two-time Grammy winner Lady Gaga has six nods, including Album of the Year for The Fame Monster. Bruno Mars has seven nominations.
Announced February 3, rock icon Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones will perform at the ceremony, paying tribute to "King of Rock'n'Soul" Solomon Burke, who died last year.
Among this year's unique collaborations are five-time Grammy winner Usher appearing with his protégé Justin Bieber along with Jaden Smith. Also, B.o.B., Bruno Mars, and Janelle Monáe will perform together.
The leading awards show for the music world is voted by industry peers in The Recording Academy, covering many categories and musical genres. The Album of the Year is awarded to the performer and producer of an album, Record of the Year is presented to the performer and producer of a song, and Song of the Year recognizes the writer/composer of a song.
Other music awards include the American Music Awards and People's Choice, which fans vote for. The UK equivalent of the Grammys is the Brit Awards, to be telecast live on February 15, and the Canadian version, the Junos, will take place in March.
The Grammy Awards will be heard on radio worldwide via Westwood One, and covered online at Grammy.com and CBS.com.
