Here's everything you need to know. Lee watched, baffled, saying "Oh what did I do?" but 50 didn't grab the mic, or say anything, instead choosing to just smiling and make his presence felt.

The 60th Grammy Awards commence on February 28 this year, and the nominations have been hailed as the most diverse in the ceremony's history, with the two major categories, Album of the Year and Song of the Year being dominated by men of color. The show can also be streamed live on the CBS All Access subscription service, which is available on CBS.com and the electronic devices listed here. With screenings and special red-carpet activities scheduled at 30+ outlets across 23 cities, the brand is also ramping up the delight factor with special partnerships. Maybe it is some of both, combined with the fact that it generally costs more to host an awards show in NY than L.A. In any case, after the Grammys went to L.A.in 1999, they have only been back once, in 2003. Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell, Kevin Frazier and Keltie Knight will host. The televised ceremony will begin at 7:30PM ET on CBS.

Kendrick, a seven-time victor, is up for seven gramophones this year, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, Best Rap/Sung Performance, and Best Music Video. He's followed by Kendrick Lamar with seven, Bruno Mars with six and Childish Gambino, Khalid and SZA with five each.

This year's show boasts many nominees with multiple nominations.

Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and Bruno Mars lead the nominees for the 2018 Grammys.


As for the party's menu, the chefs at the Marriott Marquis are preparing an eclectic mix of four food stations, all inspired by NY neighborhoods.

Many awards ceremonies are celebrating big milestones this year - the Golden Globes turned 75 and the Oscars are about to celebrate their 90th anniversary.

With fashion, awards presentations and performances the alluring features to viewers, a late addition to the performance lineup adds Rihanna to the 60th annual presentation.

In what is sure to become an iconic Grammy moment, Miley Cyrus will take the stage with Elton John to perform one of his classic hits; just two days ahead of his tribute concert where Elton John and his writing partner, Bernie Taupin, will receive the Recording Academy President's Merit Award.

They're one of many respected acts in music to have somehow been bypassed by the Grammys, despite much younger acts like Kanye West and Beyonce winning more than 20 awards each.
