On January 28th, the 60th annual Grammy Awards will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. For those of you who watched the Grammys in previous years, you may be scratching your heads because aren't they usually held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California? Typically, yes and it has been held there since 2004. However, this year, the event's location was changed in order to avoid a clash in schedules with the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

This year, hip-hop legend and mogul Jay-Z has the most nominations (8) and several of the biggest new faces in music during 2017 have been nominated, promising viewers a night they cannot miss. Hosted by James Corden, viewers and attendees should anticipate a long night as there are over 70 categories to announce winners from.
