"The Grammy Nominations Concert is the huge kickoff to The Grammys, and there is usually a surprise or two you won't want to miss; anything can happen, and I'm sure this year won't be any different," he added.

Starting today, fans can log onto www.CBS.com to upload their video. Participants have until 11:50 PM, PT on Nov. 25, 2011 to submit their videos, with one winner chosen for each artist. A film crew will surprise the winners by arriving at their locations during the telecast of the concert and broadcast their introductions on-air.
