It’s almost time for the ‘Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,’ and two time Grammy winning band Maroon 5 has been announced as the first act to perform on the star studded night.
Hosted by LL Cool J, the Grammy Nominations Concert features special nominee announcements along with a number of A-class performances. The event airs live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on CBS on Wednesday, December 5th at 10 P.M. EST.
“We are excited for the opportunity to bring ‘The Grammy Nominations Concert Special Live!!’ to Nashville this year as we recognize our nominees for the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards,” Recording Academy President Neil Portnow said in a press release. “Nashville’s rich musical and cultural history is so important and vital to our industry, and indeed to the world — a fact The Academy has recognized for decades by locating one of our most thriving and active Chapters there. We look forward to celebrating the year in music in such a passionate, vibrant, and flourishing city.”
Not only is LL Cool J hosting the Grammy Nominations Concert but he will once again host the 2012 Grammy Awards. More artists will be announced as the event draws closer.
