Tomorrow the 56th Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, so here is an overview of what to expect in this year’s ceremony. In recent years, the Grammy’s have drifted far away from the days of old in which the Award’s show was centered around the awards in themselves. Now, the ceremony has begun to focus on the extravagant performances that are held throughout the show.
A quick overview of the 2014 Grammy Awards proves that audiences can expect some rather spectacular performances this year as well.
It has just recently been confirmed that Madonna will perform the song Same Love alongside Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who have been nominated for a total of seven awards, including Best New Artist. The song Same Love is going to be something that everyone will want to keep a watchful eye on, considering if the song wins its nomination for song of the year, history will have been made, as it will be the first time that a hip-hop track won.
In addition to this unlikely trio’s performance, audiences everywhere will find that there is something to their liking with performances by the Beatles, Metallica alongside Lang Lang, another trio performance consisting of Sara Bareilles, Carole King and Robin Thicke who are expected to play with Chicago. The only question that remains in regard to this tasty line-up is whether or not Miley Cyrus’s twerking moment at the MTV awards can be one-up’d.
Further, an overview of the 2014 Grammy Awards shows that the host of this years show is going to be LL Cool J. Also, those viewing this years Grammy Awards can looking forward to the collection of videos that the producers created with the goal to capture people’s reactions to music. These videos include live performances by Eminem, Katy Perry, Pink and Macklemore, who surprised an unsuspecting New York City bus with his live performance of Cant Hold Us.
As for the nominations for this years Grammy Awards, there are definitely going to be some tough close calls. Although Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been nominated for seven different gramophone trophies, the artist with the most nominations this year is Jay-Z. Also, those viewing the Grammy’s this year can look forward to the performance of both Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce. Although it has not yet been confirmed what the two will perform, the duo should make for a memorable performance.
Other artists nominated for this years Grammy Award’s include, Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, Pink, Drake, Imagine Dragons, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Kayne West, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and additional artists. Although the fans choose who takes home the gramophone, an overview of those nominated for the 2014 Grammy Awards shows that choosing will prove to be difficult.
Although several gramophone’s look to be in Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s future, the road to getting there may prove to be challenging, as the two are up against some heavy competition such as Kanye West, Drake and Jay-Z. However, having been nominated for seven different awards, it is very likely that the two will walk away with at least one gramaphone, considering the impact that they have made this year. Regardless of who wins tomorrow night, the 2014 Grammy Awards should prove to be an incredible performance.
