The biggest night in music is almost here as the countdown begins for the 57th annual GRAMMY Awards. As final preparations are being done, we now have a sneak peek into where some of the big stars will be seated this weekend. Returning to perform at the GRAMMY Awards for the first-time in six years, Kanye West will have the best seat in the house, sitting front-row with wife Kim Kardashian West. Beyoncé and Jay Z also will be seated at the front, as the legendary Stevie Wonder, who will be honored with a 2-hour GRAMMY Special next Tuesday, sits behind The Carters.
A couple seats down from the power couple are Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, both also hitting the stage that night. Directly behind KimYe are R&B heavyweights John Legend and Mary J. Blige, as “Fancy” collaborators Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX are together in the next row. Judging from the photos, which leaked online on Thursday, Taylor Swift appears on be seated in the same row with Kanye, which will sure be a hot topic following 2009 MTV VMAs debacle. Gwen Stefani, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, and HAIM are other artists who will get a close view of the action which all goes down live from Staples Center in Los Angeles this Sunday, Feb. 8 on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
Hosted by LL Cool J, the show will feature performances from Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Common and John Legend, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige, Usher, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, and more. Beyoncé and Sam Smith each lead the pack with six nominations each.
