Live Updates: 2012 Grammy Awards Show

The 54th Grammy Awards are being broadcast by CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Kanye West led the field at the 2012 Grammys with seven nominations, though he was not nominated for Best Album. Adele was nominated for six awards, including Best Album, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.

The awards were given a somber tone by news of Whitney Houston's death Saturday afternoon. The singer was 48 years old. A cause of death was not immediately known. Jennifer Hudson was scheduled to perform Houston's biggest hit, a cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," at the Grammys as a tribute to the late star.

Many of music's biggest acts were scheduled to perform at the award show, including The Beach Boys, deadmau5, The Foo Fighters, Adele and Rihanna.
