When Are the 2013 Grammy Awards: On February 10, and These Are the Performers
The 55th Grammy Awards, hosted by LL Cool J, will take place from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California — and will be broadcasted live by CBS on February 10 — and SPIN magazine has announced the acts that will perform live during one of the most important nights of the year for music.
According to SPIN, Rihanna, Mumford & Sons, the Black Keys, Taylor Swift, and fun, among others will perform this year. Coincidentally, Mumford & Sons, fun., and the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach lead this year's nominations with six nods each.
Meanwhile, music power houses Rihanna and Swift don't hold as many nominations — Rihanna's is vying this year for the best pop solo performance with her hit "Where Have You Been," which competes against Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," as well as against Adele, Katy Perry and Carly "Call Me Maybe" Rae-Jepsen.
Swift is nominated in the record, song and album of the year categories with her song "We Are Never Getting Back Together," which competes against Frank Ocean's "Thinking Bout You" and fun.'s "We Are Young" — among others.
