Watch: 56th Annual Grammy Awards – The Performances

The Grammy Awards have returned! The annual music award ceremony is taking place on January 26th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and beginning to air live on CBS at 8 PM Est. LL Cool J is playing the role of host for the televised show while Cyndi Lauper handled hosting duties during the pre-telecast ceremony, which started at 4PM Est. Although not on the same level as performing on the main stage, Roomful Of Teeth, Summer Horns, Hiatus Kaiyote, and more have already been behind the microphone on stage at the Nokia Theatre as part of the pre-telecast performers.

No lack of talent in the Staples Center tonight but only a select few will have the opportunity to touch the stage. The show is being opened by Jay Z and Beyoncé with ‘Drunk In Love’, while Dave Grohl and Nine Inch Nails are slated to handle closing duties. Others who are scheduled to perform include names such as Daft Punk, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Juicy J, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, and John Legend.

Stay with us throughout the night as we'll be posting footage of each performance shortly after the artist(s) leave the stage. Watch the 56th Annual Grammy Awards performances below. Props to Yardie.
