Ariana Grande Will Perform on ‘A Very Grammy Christmas’

grandeAccording to the latest reports, all nominees for the 2015 Grammy Awards will be revealed on Friday, Dec. 5. However, the revelation of the nominees will be carried out in two parts. The most prestigious one – the Album of the year nomination, will be announced in the evening, at 9 pm on CBS, during the one-hour Christmas special – A Very Grammy Christmas. All other 82 categories will be revealed early that morning.

The Recording Academy wanted to change the way of unveiling the nominees a little bit, after they have hosted a Grammy Nominations Concert LIVE! for the last six years. The holiday special will keep at least that one single category of nominations in a performance show format. However, something simmilar has already been carried out by some other music organizations, like the CMAs.

Grammy Awards first launched the announcement of its main nominees through a televised concert in 2008, however, Neil Portnow, who is the Recording Academy CEO, said in an interview on Thursday that it was time to switch it up. Portnow stated that they are freshening things up and changing it all a little bit, but despite the fact that it will all be slightly different, the kick-off for Grammy season will still be getting all of the nominations out that day.

The one-hour Christmas special, A Very Grammy Christmas, will broadcast on December 5, at 9 pm and it will be hosted by rapper and actor LL Cool J. Furthermore, the show will also feature Ariana Grande, Tim McGraw, Maroon 5, Pharrell Williams and some other artists, which will be announced at a later date, according to Ken Ehrlich, who is the producer of the show. A Very Grammy Christmas will be taped at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium on Nov. 18 and Ehrlich said that the Album of the year nominees will be revealed just a little before the end of the show.

During A Very Grammy Christmas show, the artists will be performing holiday songs and their own hits as well. In addition, all of the performers will be discussing and sharing their favourite holiday moments, as well as their favourite Grammy moments. In his statement, Ehrlich said that if any musical artist is asked what his best Christmas gift would be, eight out of 10 of them would most probably reply: a Grammy nomination. Except for Ariana Grande, who had a breakthrough this year with several hit songs, all currently announced performers are Grammy winners.

According to Jack Sussman, the CBS’ executive Vice President of specials, music and live events, what people ultimately want is to connect with real stories and great music, so they want to kick off the Grammy season with an event that will let the fans not only hear music, but also to hear heartfelt and engaging stories.

The 2014 Grammy Awards were handed out in January and Daft Punk won the prestigious Album of the year award for the Random Access Memories. The 2015 Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center  in Los Angeles on Feb. 8 and it will include 83 categories.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!
