Awards | Music
The 2016 Grammy Awards ceremony is being held on February 15, 2016, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony recognizes the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which is from October 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015. The "pre-telecast" ceremony, officially known as the Premiere Ceremony, in which the majority of awards will be presented, will be held at the nearby Microsoft Theater. It will be the sixteenth Grammy ceremony to be held at the Staples Center, tying the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles for hosting the most Grammy ceremonies. It also marks the latest date for a Grammy ceremony since 2003, which were held on February 23. Unlike previous years, where it was held on a Sunday, the 2016 edition will be held on a Monday for the first time to take advantage of the U.S. Presidents' Day long weekend. The ceremony will be televised in the United States by CBS; for the first time, CBS affiliates in the western half of the country will have the option of broadcasting the Grammys live from the East coast feed, in addition to an encore in local primetime. Nominations for the 58th Grammy Awards ceremony were announced on December 7, 2015. Kendrick Lamar received the most nominations with 11. For the latter, he went on to pass Eminem as the rapper with the most nominations in a single night, and second overall behind Michael Jackson (12 nominations in 1984). Taylor Swift and The Weeknd received seven nominations each. Producer Max Martin received the most nominations for a non-performing artist, with six. LL Cool J will host for the fifth straight year. Gwen Stefani's "Make Me Like You" music video was acted out, filmed and broadcast live during a four-minute Grammys commercial break on CBS.
