I look forward to this night every year. I sit down in front of the tv with Twitter and my ears open and relish in the power of music. Beforehand, I also tune into the E! Red Carpet and the Pre-Red Carpet of course, but we’ll save that for another day.  What am I watching?! THE GRAMMY’S. Tune into CBS this Sunday at 8 pm to watch all the magic happen.

The show is bound to be fully entertaining with performances by: AC/DC, Eric Church, Ariana Grande, Miranda Lambert, Madonna, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Usher, and Pharrell Williams. Not to mention some killer duets:  Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Common and John Legend, Hozier and Annie Lennox, Jessie J and Tom Jones, and Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani. And don’t forget LL Cool J will be hosting for the 136789000 time!
