Have you ever wished you could go before a live audience and introduce your favorite artists? Now, fans can win the chance to do just that with none other than Lady Gaga & Sugarland, or Jason Aldean featuring Ludacris at The Grammy Nominations Concert Live! Countdown to Music's Biggest Night!
Today, CBS launched a contest for music fans from across the country to win the chance to introduce a performance by one of the above artists during a live broadcast from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Wednesday, Nov. 30 (10:00-11:00 p.m., live ET/delayed PT) on CBS.
How does one land this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? In order to qualify fans must shoot a video explaining why they are one of the artist's biggest fans and how they would uniquely introduce their favorite performer. Film crews will surprise winners in their hometowns and have them introduce their favorite performer via satellite.
Fans can log onto www.CBS.com to upload their video. Participants have until 11:50 p.m. PT on November 25, 2011 to submit their videos, with one winner chosen for each artist. A film crew will surprise the winners by arriving at their locations during the telecast of the concert and broadcast their introductions on-air. For rules and entry information, click here.
"Fans should explain how they will create their once-in-a-lifetime introduction -- making it as big as they can by getting their family, friends and community involved for a memorable event," says Jack Sussman, CBS Executive Vice President Specials, Music and Live Events. "The Grammy Nominations Concert is the huge kick-off to The Grammys and there is usually a surprise or two you won't want to miss; anything can happen and I'm sure this year won't be any different."
The road to Music's Biggest Night begins with The Grammy Nominations Concert Live! and culminates with The 54th Annual Grammy Awards at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, airing live on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012 on CBS Television.
