LIVE in Los Angeles. About 70 Grammy trophies will be handed out during the event, which will be streamed live at Grammy.com/Live and CBS.com.
The show, which is expected to last two-and-a-half hours, also will feature a number of performances, including one by famed South African trumpet player Hugh Masekela. Both Ian and Masekela are among this year's nominees -- the former garnering a Best Spoken Word Album nod for Society's Child: My Autobiography, and the latter receiving a nomination in the Best World Music Album category for Jabulani.
If you aren't able to watch the Grammy Awards Pre-Telecast Ceremony live, the event will be viewable on demand for 30 days at Grammy.com. As previously reported, CBS will broadcast the 55th Annual Grammy Awards from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday.
