The 55th Annual Grammy Awards took place on February 10th at STAPLES Center, giving music fans and awards aficionados alike plenty to sing about at L.A. LIVE. The Grammy is the recording industry’s most prestigious award, presented by The Recording Academy to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences. This year, Hilton Hotels is celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of its partnership with The Recording Academy as the Official Hotel for the Grammy Awards. The ceremony is an invitation-only affair, but fans can spot the stars from the bleacher seats outside STAPLES Center. Last year was the first time that the public could bid on bleacher seats through Grammy Charity Online Auctions, with proceeds benefitting MusicCares and the Grammy Foundation.

The ceremony takes place under a lavish tent at Santa Monica Beach and recognizes the finest achievements of today’s independent filmmakers. Other than entertainment-industry members and sponsors, the Spirit Awards are closed to the public, though the ceremony will be broadcast live on IFC.
