Join Capital as we take a look ahead to one of the biggest nights in the music calendar.

The Grammy Awards 2013 are set to be one of the biggest nights in the ceremonies' 55-year history with performances from some of the top names in music and a whole host of prizes to hand out.

Following the success of British star Adele at last year's event – taking home six awards – it could be once again a night for UK talent to shine.

Ed Sheeran will go head to head with the likes of multi-nominated Fun. for Song of The Year and is also performing alongside Sir Elton John on the night.

The 'Lego House' man has revealed his nightmares ahead of the show and has already confessed he will be dressing in the smartest you've ever seen him.

Also, one of the biggest moments of the night will surely come with Justin Timberlake's appearance – his first live televised performance since announcing his musical return. 

With all the talk of whether Rihanna will arrive with rumoured new boyfriend Chris Brown, her performance could be overshadowed as she takes to the stage with Bruno Mars and Sting for one of the most unlikely collaborations in years.

Mumford & Sons will be aiming to kick start 2013 with the momentum that helped them shift over 600,00 copies of their second album 'Babel' in the US on the night, as they're nominated for six awards on the night.

Taylor Swift was one of 2012's biggest acts and could start the awards season with a bang as she aims to take home three awards including Record Of The Year with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together'.

The country star is also on the performers line-up and never disappoints with her choice of attire on the red carpet. 

The night rarely goes without a surprise or two, and with rumours of a Beyonce performance – the 'Love On Top' singer could easily steal the show.
