The Grammy Awards are just hours away and viewers are anticipating a good show!
LL Cool J is hosting the big event as some of the most expected performers to hit the stage are Jay Z, Robin Thicke, Miguel, Beyonce and Madonna, who some speculate might rock the stage together. If not Madonna, many Beyonce fans are hoping the Diva singer performs one of her newest songs, Drunk In Love, a hit from her self-titled album.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are slated to have a Beatles reunion on stage Sunday as well while Daft Punk hits the Grammy stage for the first time since 2008 with Yeezus rapper Kanye West.
Alicia Keys will also make an appearance on stage, but as a presenter, not a performer. Eat, Pray Love actress Julia Roberts is one of the newest stars to be listed as a presenter along with Steve Coogan. Other presenters include Steven Tyler, Bruno Mars, Jamie Foxx, Ariana Grade, How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris and Marc Anthony.
As far as nominations, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snagged their first Grammy nominations. Even though Lorde's Royals got her a nod for Record of the Year she was snubbed in the Best New Artist category. Macklemore and Lewis will most likely walk home with a Grammy or two as they are nominated for a few awards including Album of the Year for The Heist, Best New Artist. They already snagged the Spotify pick for both of those categories.
Other veterans like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have also snagged a few nods themselves. Swift is up for Best New Album for her Red project and Perry's Roar might end up being the Song of the Year. The song is also nominated for Best Solo Performance.
Check out the full list of nominees here and be sure to watch the Grammys on CBS Sunday at 8/7c.
