The 56th annual Grammy Awards Ceremony 2014 will be streamed live January 26th at 1 P.M. There are so many talented stars being nominated this year that it is going to be hard to decide who is the best.
You can all “Bow down” because Beyoncé and Jay Z are bringing the royal family to the 2014 Grammy Awards. The powerful duo confirmed their appearance in a commercial for the awards telecast, according to Billboard.com. The ad also revealed Grammy-nominated superstars Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis taking the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles next weekend, along with Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Daft Punk and Paul McCartney.
Besides hitting up the Grammy stage Jay Z is up for some Grammy gold. His 2013 album “Magna Carta. … Holy Grail” earned nine nominations, including Best Rap Album.

POP & SCHLAGER SONGWRITERCAMP 2014
Inspired by the snowy scenery in the middle of the Alps, far away from the everyday life and motivated by the fresh mountain air, songwriters can let their creativity run wild. Following a very successful premiere of the Schedler Music Summit in 2013, the branch meeting will be continued in 2014, becoming an annual event. At the Schedler Music Summit March 14th-16th 2014, the music industry will meet again in Steeg (Lechtal/Tyrol) and in Warth am Arlberg to make new contacts and catch up with the old ones, and of course exchange news from the industry.
