The Foo Fighters, John Mayer, and B.B. King will perform at the inaugural Grammy Nominations Concert, a Dec. 3 CBS telecast that will double as the announcement of the annual awards’ nominees and a chance to make the American public remember that the music industry exists. The event will be hosted by Mariah Carey, LL Cool J, and Taylor Swift, a triumverate that gives lots of people to make jokes about Cliff Clavin’s “who are three people who have never been in my kitchen?” Jeopardy answer all over again.
