Music's most awaited night returns on Monday as the 51st Annual Grammy Awards brings together the biggest celebrities in a star-studded ceremony at the Staples Center, Los Angeles.

Star World is broadcasting the ceremony live at 5am, along with a primetime telecast on the same day at 8pm.

Some of the performances not to be missed on the night include U2, Rihanna, Coldplay, Jonas Brothers, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney (with guest drummer Dave Grohl), Katy Perry, Radiohead, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Kanye West.

Hollywood A-listers have also been roped in as presenters, including Jack Black, Samuel L Jackson and Gwyneth Paltrow.

For those of you who don't have access to Star World can catch the online coverage on grammy.com, cbs.com and youtube.com.
This year, social networking sites are also in on the game with fan groups on witter.com (the Grammys) and facebook.com (The Recording Academy).

Among the nominees, rapper Li'l Wayne leads with a total of eight nods, while Brit rockers Coldplay have seven. Hip-hop stars Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and Kanye West each have six nominations. So while fans wait with breathless anticipation for the big night, we can't wait for diva Kanye to have yet another Grammy meltdown.
