The 54th Annual Grammy Awards – Tonight!

12 Feb

Tonight is the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Show.

You can expect a lot of fashion on the red carpet, and some great live performances, including a recently-added Whitney Houston tribute sung by Jennifer Hudson and Chaka Kahn.

There may be controversial moments, too – for example, Chris Brown, known for both his talents and his anger management issues, is taking the stage, outraging some for his notorious pre-Grammy antics not too long ago. Ex-girlfriend/possible current mistress Rihanna is up for Album of the Year, and has remained mum on the abuse scandal as of late.

Speaking of mum, Mumford & Sons is up against Adele, Katy Perry Bon Iver, and Bruno Mars for Record of the Year.

Album of the Year nominees are Lady Gaga, Adele, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, and Bruno Mars.

The Grammys are going to be hosted by LL Cool J and are set to air at 8pm EST tonight, February 12th, 2012 on CBS.

Adele is expected to come out on top as the night’s big winner, and will also be giving her first performance since a vocal chord surgery; and Kanye West is leading the pack in nominees with a total of  7 Grammy nominations this year.
