Grammy Nominations Special Airs Tonight On CBS
December 6, 2013

Katy Perry
The now-annual Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! airs tonight from 10-11 p.m. on CBS, after taking place on Wednesday nights in previous years. A number of performers have been added to the special, with Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Lorde now on board. Additionally, members of Earth, Wind and Fire and T.I. will join Robin Thicke for his previously announced performance, while Miguel will team up with the previously announced Keith Urban. However, Drake has dropped off the bill for tonight's show, with TMZ citing a "scheduling conflict" as the reason. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will also perform on the special.

The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! will be hosted by LL Cool J, who has presided over the special since its debut in 2008. More presenters have been announced for the special as well, including Arsenio Hall, Enrique Iglesias and Ed Sheeran.

Additionally, the 2014 Grammy Nominees album will be released via Atlantic Records on January 21, 2014. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the album will help support the Grammy Foundation and MusiCares Foundation

"Atlantic is thrilled to partner with The Recording Academy on this fantastic series for the first time," said Atlantic Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman. "The Grammy is the most prestigious award in our industry, and this collection will reflect the exceptional talent and diversity of the artists who have earned nominations this year. To be able to gather all this music together in one album to support the wonderful work being done by the Grammy charities is a testament to the generous spirit of our colleagues and artists throughout the music business."

The Grammys will be handed out on Sunday, January 26, 2014 on CBS.
