Grammy NODS Live Concert: LL Cool J, Bruno Mars, Taraji P Henson, Melanie Fiona, Common,

The 2011 Grammy Nomination Concert was held live last night at Nokia Theater in LA, hosted by LL Cool J. The concert included a special performance of The Message, originally recorded by Grandmaster Flash and Furious Five, with Rappers Common, LL COOL J, Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross, along with the original group members Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, and Scorpio.

Actors, Taraji P Henson and Taylor Lautner, announced the nominations for the 2012 Grammy Awards. Kanye West leads the pack with seven nominations, followed by Adele, Bruno Mars, and the Foo Fighters with six nominations, and Lil Wayne garners five.

I’m also proud to announce that Cee-Lo Green, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Jay-Z have multiple nominations as well. Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown, Melanie Fiona, Ledisi, Marsha Ambrosius, Raphael Saddiq, Eric Benet, Kelly Price & Stokley, Wiz Khalifa, Drake, Charlie Wilson, El Debarge, and Andre 3000 are all up for nods in R&B and Rap categories.
