The 56th Annual Grammy Awards was held on January 26, 2014, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The show was broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/P. The show was moved to January to avoid competing against the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The eligibility period for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards was October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. The nominations were announced on December 6, 2013 during a live televised concert on CBS, The Grammy Nominations Concert Live – Countdown to Music's Biggest Night. Jay-Z received the most nominations with nine. Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Pharrell Williams all got seven nominations. Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams were nominated twice for both Album of the Year and Record of the Year.

Sound engineer Bob Ludwig received the most nominations by a non-performing artist, with five.

Daft Punk won five awards including album of the year, while Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won four trophies and led an industry show of support for gay marriage.

Carole King was honored as MusiCares Person of the Year on January 24, two days prior to the awards ceremony.

On June 4, 2013, the Recording Academy approved a number of changes recommended by its Awards & Nominations Committee: a new category for Best American Song has been added to the American Music field. It is a songwriter's award, which will encompass all the subgenres in this field such as Americana, bluegrass, blues, folk and regional roots music.


The Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category was renamed Best Metal Performance and became a stand-alone category. Hard rock performances will now be screened in the Best Rock Performance category. The Music Video field will become the Best Music Video/Film field. Its two categories will be renamed: Best Short Form Music Video will now be known as Best Music Video and Best Long Form Music Video will change into Best Music Film. These changes bring the total number of categories at the 2014 Grammy Awards to 82, up from 81 at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
