Although I’m sure you would all love to stay up late and search for an unreliable stream of the Grammy awards online, you don’t have to.

This year we can all enjoy a comfortable Sunday nights sleep,  put your mind at rest and catch up with the 2014 Grammy Awards as it  premieres exclusively on 4Music on  Monday 27th January,  a day after the awards show takes place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center hosted by LL COOL J!

The performances line up was recently released and it looks like it’s set to be another great year of performances with acts such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Beatles stars Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Lorde and low and behold the couple that everyone is always talking about …. no not Kimye, that would be hiarious though, but Beyonce & Jay Z. Rumours have it they may perform TOGETHER… but who knows.

It’s definitely going to be a big kick start to the music segment of awards season.
