NEW YORK (AP) — Drake, Robin Thicke, Keith Urban and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will perform on the Grammy Awards nominations special in December.

The Recording Academy made the announcement Wednesday. The show will be held Dec. 6 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

Rapper-actor LL Cool J will host "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music's Biggest Night." The one-hour special will air on CBS starting at 10 p.m. Eastern.
