The 2014 Grammy Awards aren't for another 14 weeks, but the long road toward Gramaphone dominance begins now with the announcement of the annual Grammy Nominations Concert on Friday, December 6.

Drake, Macklemore + Ryan Lewis, Robin Thicke and Keith Urban have all been confirmed to perform, with noted lip-licker, actor, host and sometime musician LL Cool J returning as host.

The show will also announce nominations in all the major categories, making December 6 a banner night in the lives of Las Vegas bookies and Grammy bingo players. 

The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 26, 2014 and broadcast on CBS at 8 P.M. ET/PT.
