Another Opportunity To Not Watch The Grammys
"The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music's Biggest Night" is a new entertainment special that will announce nominations in at least six categories, feature performances by past GRAMMY winners, and will set the stage for the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 8, 2009.
The one-hour special will be broadcast live from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Dec. 3 from 9–10 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network, and will also celebrate the grand opening of the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live. Additionally, tickets to the live event will be available for sale to the public and proceeds will benefit the Grammy Museum. Presenters and performers will be announced shortly.
"Every year, millions of music fans and people around the world anticipate the announcement of our Grammy nominations, anxious to learn which artists from every genre represent the highest levels of musical excellence," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "The ability to showcase Grammy-winning artists combined with the nominations for the 51st Annual Grammy Awards represents a milestone for The Recording Academy as we begin the next decade of our important missions. And with the grand opening of the Grammy Museum — directly across from our Los Angeles home at Staples Center and now the Nokia Theatre — we are proud to introduce the world to this extraordinary facility, which will showcase our rich history, unique and classic Grammy moments, and the ongoing legacy exemplified by this very special evening of live music."
