The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles this Sunday night. In anticipation of the record industry’s biggest night, Rolling Stone checked in with a top Las Vegas oddsmaker and a panel of pop stars, including Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert, to determine who is most likely to win big this year. You can see if their predictions check out on Sunday night while following Rob Sheffield’s interactive live blog of the event, which will kick off a half hour before showtime at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Rolling Stone also talked to Gary Cherone about his time in Van Halen, learned about the newly-reunited Luscious Jackson‘s plans to record a new album and chatted with Karmin about their appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Plus, we reported on concerts by Skrillex, Van Halen, the B-52’s and Mötley Crüe, analyzed this week’s charts, looked back on this week in rock history and reviewed all the hottest new releases.
In pop culture, we talked to Flight of the Conchords comedian Bret McKenzie about his Oscar nomination for writing a song for The Muppets, Peter Travers praised Chronicles and Rampart, and we recapped the latest episodes of Glee, Smash, American Idol, The Voice and Jersey Shore.
