Fun., Ne-Yo Join Grammy Nominations Concert
The best part of being the Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! -- their prerogative to have a little fun. The "We Are Young" rockers have been added to the December broadcast, airing on CBS from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The group will be aiming for its first Grammy nominations on the strength of album "Some Nights" and hit songs such as the title track, which has sold over 3 million.
Also joining the bill is R&B star Ne-Yo, a three-time Grammy winner, whose new album, "R.E.D.," looks to debut in the Billboard 200's top 10 on this week's chart. The concert additions will join country singer Luke Bryan and Maroon 5, who will follow the broadcast with an hour-long concert for ticket-holders.
Returning host LL Cool J will be joined this year by Taylor Swift, who's no stranger to the Grammy stage. The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! will air Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. EST, with the Grammy Awards themselves set on CBS for Feb. 10, 2013, at 8 p.m. EST.
