Taylor Swift is to co-host the 2012 Grammy Nominations Concert Live with LL Cool J.

The big show, scheduled for 5 December (12), is likely to be extra special for Swift as she is almost sure to snag a handful of nods for her new album, Red.

The Grammy nominations announcement show will take place in Nashville, Tennessee for the first time.

Swift and LL Cool J co-hosted the event together back in 2008.

Luke Bryan will perform during the Tv special, alongside Maroon 5.
