On Jan. 21,2015, the Grammys announced more performers and the host of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. The ceremony will be held on Feb. 8, 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Pharrell, Sam Smith, Usher and Miranda Lambert are joining the 2015 Grammy performers line-up. Previously announced performers are Madonna, AC/DC, Ariana Grande, Eric Church and Ed Sheeran. LL Cool J of “NCIS: Los Angeles” will host the event for the fourth time. This will be the second time he is hosting the award show and will also serve as a producer. Nine-time Grammy award winner John Legend will hit the stage to perform “Glory,” the critically acclaimed song from the movie “Selma.”
According to Boston Herald, not all Grammys will be presented during the live telecast. As in previous years, most awards will be handed out during the so-called pre-telecast ceremony, held at the Nokia Theater next to the Staples Center. It would take place during the afternoon before the main show. From 2015, this ceremony will be known as the Premiere Ceremony. Approximately 70 Grammys will be presented at this ceremony.
Beyonce, Williams and Sam Smith lead the list of nominees this year with six nods each, including album of the year. While Iggy Azalea, Beck, Eric Church, engineer Tom Coyne, Drake, Gordon Goodwin, Jay-Z, Miranda Lambert, Sia, Usher and Jack White followed closely with four nominations each. The 57th Grammy Awards will broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS.
