In recent years, every time the GRAMMYs roll around, the nominees are announced by hip-hop turned TV star LL Cool J at a special nominations concert. Airing this Friday, December 6th, at 10pm EST / 7pm PST on CBS, the rapper will list out all the year's lucky potential recipients of a GRAMMY award.

Since it's also a concert, some of music's biggest names will be performing live alongside LL Cool J hosting. "Royals" sensation Lorde was just announced, as well as Robin Thicke & T.I., who are scheduled to perform their massive hit "Blurred Lines" with legendary R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire.

Another collaboration taking place will be Keith Urban and Miguel teaming up to perform the classic Bill Withers jam "Ain't No Sunshine", and previously-recorded footage of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift will be shown at the nominations concert also.
