The 55th Grammy Awards are taking place this Sunday at Staples Center at L.A. Live and, as usual, the awards show will have no shortage of musicians, rock glam and unusual performance mashups.
The show will be broadcast live on CBS on the East Coast from 8 to 11:30 p.m. Eastern Time and will air on the West Coast on tape delay from 8 to 11:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
The red carpet, perhaps of a much more mild variety, begins at 12 p.m. Pacific time but will start filling up with talent at about 2 p.m.
