TORONTO, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Scandalous outfits, jaw-dropping speeches and everything in between...the year's best in music to be honoured at the 52nd Annual GRAMMY(R) Awards.

Broadcast live on Sunday, January 31 - 8pm ET/PT on Global, the prestigious award ceremony boasts 2009's most celebrated recording artists as they vie for a spot in GRAMMY(R) history.
