JoJo Attends 2016 Billboard Power 100 Celebration – Grammy Awards
The 2016 Grammy Awards recognize the best recordings, songs and artists of the year. The “pre-telecast” ceremony, where most of the awards are presented, will be held at the nearby Microsoft Theater.
This will be the 16th Grammy Awards ceremony held at the Staples Center. That ties L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium for hosting the most Grammy ceremonies. It also marks the latest date for a Grammy ceremony since 2003, held on February 23.
Unlike previous years, where it was held on a Sunday, the 2016 edition will be held on a Monday for the first time ever. That’s to take advantage of the U.S. Presidents’ Day long weekend.
The ceremony will be televised in the United States by CBS. For the first time, CBS’ western affiliates will have the option of broadcasting the Grammys live rather than airing tape delayed in local primetime.
Grammy Awards nominations were announced on December 7, 2015. Kendrick Lamar received the most with 11. He surpasses Eminem as the rapper with the most nominations in a single night. That’s second overall behind Michael Jackson (12 nominations in 1984).
Taylor Swift and The Weeknd received seven nominations each. (They led the iHeartRadio Music Awards, too). Producer Max Martin received the most non-performing nominations, with six.
LL Cool J will host for the fifth straight year. Gwen Stefani’s “Make Me Like You” music video will be filmed live during a four-minute commercial during the Grammys.
