The Grammy Awards are generally considered the biggest night of the year in the music universe and this year's no exception.

Taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the 55th edition of the awards promises huge star power, and equally huge performances from the many, many big names who'll be hitting the stage.

There's a lot of information to take in around the Grammys, so we've broken down the most important bit for music fans to remember.

When are the Grammy Awards happening?

The awards start at 8 p.m. ET on February 10. They air on CBS in the United States and on Global in Canada.

Who's hosting?

Rap star/actor LL Cool J is set to knock us all out. But only if his mama says so.

Who's performing?

Everyone. Well, technically not everyone. But Justin Timberlake just confirmed he's performing. He joins a mega-list that includes the likes of Jack White, Rihanna, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Fun., The Black Keys... we'd keep going but you need some surprise.

Who's nominated?

Not Justin Bieber. And he's being a bit of a brat about it. He's got a point, though, considering this guy got nominated. Frank Ocean, Jay-Z, Fun., Kanye West, Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and Mumford & Sons lead with six nominations each. A fuller list can be found here.
