Numerous artists have been nominated to receive awards ranging from “Record of the Year” to “Best Surround Sound Album.” Since the nominees list release on Wednesday, Dec. 5 2012 fans have voiced their opinions of approval and disappointment. 
The Grammy Award’s, for those who love music, can be a night worth celebrating with friends and family.  Many Auburn University students are planning to do just that.
“I am really excited about watching the Grammys,” said Auburn University senior Katie Wilcox. “I’m not a music major or anything but I love music and I love rooting on my favorite artists.”
Wilcox has planned a Grammy watching party with her two roommates and numerous other friends.
“I’m sure there are people who could care less about the Grammys, but I personally enjoy them,” said Auburn University student Jourdan Cooper. “Music accompanies me in every aspect of my life whether it be academics, hobbies or even just driving in my car. I want my favorite artists to know they have my support, so I am definitely going to watch the Grammys on Sunday.”
Many of Auburn’s sorority girls plan to watch the Grammy Award’s on their chapter room plasma TV’s come Sunday evening.
“Since we don’t live in a house, my sisters and I decided that we would go watch the Grammys in our sorority chapter room,” said Erin Newsom Auburn University sophomore.  “I think it will be more fun than watching alone, we can all be together and we can study at the same time.”
Many Auburn students are excited to see the outcome of Sunday night’s award ceremony, while others show no interest and do not even plan to watch. 
“I love music but I really don’t care who wins,” Auburn University senior Preston Whittemore said. “To be honest I don’t even know who the nominees are.”
Like Whittemore, many students did not know the awards were Sunday. 
“Wow, I didn’t realize it was already that time of the year again,” said Auburn student Heath O’Reilly. “I have an exam the following Monday so I doubt I will even have the time to watch.”
LL Cool J will host this Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony. Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson are just a few of the artist performing at the ceremony. 
The 2013 Grammy Awards ceremony is set to air at 7 p.m. CDT on CBS. For more information, visit
