Bruno MarsIn 2018, the host was James Corden, but those 60th annual Grammy Awards were held at Madison Square Garden, in New York.

That's because the Staples Center, the show's usual venue in Los Angeles, was busy hosting the NBA All-Star Game.

( Bruno Mars stole the 2018 show; performers included Lady Gaga, U2, Pink, Sting, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino,and Little Big Town.)

With the Staples Center free again this year, the Grammys are back in L.A., where they belong.

The Grammy Award is the granddaddy of all music awards, dating back over four decades; it is to music what the Oscars are to the movies. (The name "Grammy" is short for "gramophone," since the awards are shaped like those old-fashioned phonographs).

Over the years L.A. and New York had played tug-of-war with the Grammy Awards show. The result? Two thirds of the Grammy ceremonies had been held in Los Angeles, a third in New York City, and once in Nashville. But in 2004, the award show moved back to L.A., and has remained here.

( However, when the NBA All-Star Game comes to L.A. in 2018, the Grammys will temporarily shift to NYC for that year's awards. )

Alas, tickets to the annual Grammy Awards show are not available to the general public; it's "by invitation only" to nominees, recording artists, & record company execs.

(But if you want a more certain way to see many of the same music superstars in person, you'll be happy to learn that tickets are available to the public for the American Music Awards.)
