The annual nominations concert also will be held in Los Angeles and take place on December 5, 2012, the Recording Academy said in a statement.

Both the nominations and the awards - in its 55th edition for 2013 - will take place in the city's Staples Center and be broadcast live on U.S. television network CBS.

Only a handful of the 70-plus categories for the awards are featured in the nominations and awards show, including the top honors of album, record and song of the year.

A week of cultural events and activities take place in the run up to music's biggest night, including producer Clive Davis' pre-Grammy gala the night before the awards which was struck by tragedy this past February after the sudden death of singer Whitney Houston a few hours before the party.

Houston's death cast a shadow on the 2012 awards show, and the late singer was commemorated by Jennifer Hudson singing "I Will Always Love You."

A record 39.9 million viewers tuned in to see British singer Adele sweep top categories, take home six Grammys, and sing a heartfelt rendition of her hit single "Rolling In The Deep." It was her first performance since her throat surgery in late 2011.

The awards show also brought back a host for the first time in seven years with actor-singer LL Cool J, and featured performances by Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and a electronic dance music tribute with Deadmau5 and Foo Fighters.
