LL Cool J stopped by ET on Thursday to give a preview of what the GRAMMY Awards has in store for viewers on Monday, and he could hardly contain himself.

"We have a livestreaming GRAMMY cam that's going to be inside of the GRAMMY award statue itself so that you'll be able to see -- live -- the perspective from the artists' point of view on stage," LL told ET. "You will literally be in your favorite artist's hands, seeing their perspective."

According to the returning GRAMMY host, the camera will also be capable of capturing backstage shenanigans, which could lead some artists to be on their best behavior.

Music's biggest night will once again be a who's who of the most notable musical talents in the world. Performers include Taylor Swift, Adele, Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood and The Weeknd.

"I don't want to blow it for the audience, but I'll just put it to you like this," LL said. "This is a show that you want to see from the opening buzzer, so to speak. Make sure you turn it on early."

While the event will celebrate the illustrious nominees, it will also pay homage to the icons we lost over the last year.
