TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - Roll out the red carpet and pump up the volume for music's biggest night - the 53rd Annual GRAMMY® Awards are back and more star-studded than ever.

Broadcast live on Sunday, February 13 - 8pm ET/PT on Global, the prestigious award ceremony features the year's most celebrated recording artists as they duke it out for a spot in GRAMMY history. Off the chart acts like Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Katy Perry and Canadian rockers Arcade Fire will take to the stage. Then, keeping with GRAMMY tradition, the show will include a special duet between Canada's very own Drake and pop sensation Rihanna. And if that isn't exciting enough, rock legend Mick Jagger will make his very first live appearance on the GRAMMY stage as part of the broadcast's "In Memorium" tribute, which pays homage to music icons that have passed away in the past year. This is the show that music lovers simply cannot miss.

"Even at the height of awards season, the GRAMMYS always stands out above the crowd with its unique combination of A-list talent, super energetic atmosphere and unforgettable one-off performances that will have everyone talking the next day," said Barb Williams, SVP, Content, Shaw Media. "Plus, Canadians have a special red carpet pass as ET Canada is back on location to access all the stars in the red hot moment. With Cheryl, Rick and Matte joining forces, our viewers will be revved up for an amazing show."

As the only Canadian entertainment outlet positioned on the GRAMMY red carpet, ET Canada's special one-hour pre-show, The GRAMMY Awards: ET Canada Live kicks-off the night starting at 7pm ET/PT and will lead directly into the Awards broadcast. ET Canada's Cheryl Hickey, Rick Campanelli and new Hollywood Correspondent Matte Babel will be at the top of the carpet and catching all the biggest stars as they enter the Staples Center.
