For the fifth year in a row, the nominations for the annual Grammy Awards will be announced live on primetime television. However, a significant change this year is that the event and its accompanying concert will move from Los Angeles to Nashville, Tennessee. The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! special will take place December 5, 2012 and air live on CBS at 10 p.m. ET. Nominations will be announced for the 55th annual Grammy Awards which will be presented at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California February 10, 2013. The Grammy Awards ceremony will also be broadcast live on CBS television beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
Recording Academy president Neil Portnow says of the announcement, ""Nashville's rich musical and cultural history is so important and vital to our industry, and indeed to the world -- a fact The Academy has recognized for decades by locating one of our most thriving and active Chapters there. We look forward to celebrating the year in music in such a passionate, vibrant, and flourishing city." No details about a host or performers have been announced yet.
