The nominees for the 2013 Grammy Awards will be announced tonight for the first time in a flashy, live concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena hosted by Taylor Swift and LL Cool J that will feature performances by fun., The Band Perry, Maroon 5, Janelle Monae, The Who and others.
While previous years’ Grammys have been dominated by a single powerhouse artist or album (I’m lookin’ at you, Adele), this year it could be anyone’s game. Will Billboard sensations Justin Bieber and Rihanna get nods, or will indie darlings like Frank Ocean, Mumford and Sons, and The Black Keys rule the night? I guess we just have to wait and see!
Check back at 10:00 PM ET as we reveal the nominees along with CBS’ broadcast.
