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.

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.)
