The 2016 Grammy Awards will be on February 15, 2016, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony will recognize the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which will run from October 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015. LL Cool J will host for the fifth straight year.
Unlike previous years, where it was held on a Sunday, the 2016 ceremony will be held on a Monday for the first time to take advantage of the U.S. Presidents’ Day long weekend. The ceremony will be televised in the United States by CBS. Nominations for the 58th Grammy Awards ceremony were announced on December 7, 2015. Kendrick Lamar received the most nominations with 11. For the latter, he went on to pass Eminem as the rapper with the most nominations in a single night. Taylor Swift and The Weeknd received seven nominations each. Producer Max Martin received the most nominations for a non-performing artist, with six.
This is expected to be one of the biggest Grammy’s in years, especially given Lady Gaga’s highly anticipated tribute to recently passed rock legend David Bowie. With a performance from Adele, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Carrie Underwood, Kendrick Lamar, and more, the 2016 Grammy’s look to be the best in years.
At last year’s show, Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” won Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and Beck’s Morning Phase won Album of the Year.
