Pre-Grammy Goss!

Get Ready For The Epic 2012 Music Bash…

There’s just a couple more days to go until the music madness of the ‘2012 Grammy Awards’ finally kicks-off!

With rap King Kanye West up for seven, Adele, the Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars going head-to-head for six, and Lil Wayne and Skrillex scooping five each - we can’t wait to see who’ll be celebrating til the early hours and who’ll be left drowning their sorrows!

Either way this year’s bash looks set to wipe the floor with its predecessors thanks to the HUGE bunch of star-studded performers!

Hosted by LL Cool J, the 54th annual bash, which kicks off at LA’s Staples Center on February 12, will see the likes of Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry take to the stage.

And that’s not all - the event is promising some crazily cool collabs too!

Yep, get ready for Rihanna and Coldplay, Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt, The Beach Boys with Foster The People and Maroon 5, as well as a packed set by Chris Brown, Deadmau5, Foo Fighters, David Guetta and Lil Wayne.

The epic evening will also be the first time former lovers Chris Brown and Rihanna have come face-to-face at a public event since the RnB hitmaker was charged with assaulting her after the 2009 pre-Grammy bash.

And talking of firsts, all eyes will be on popstar Adele, who’ll be making her hotly anticipated return to the stage after undergoing vocal chord surgery in November.

The ‘2012 Grammy Awards’ will kick off at LA’s Staples Center on February 12!

Make sure you stay tuned to for all the latest goss!
