57th Annual GRAMMY Awards: 10 celebrity parents to watch

Get set for the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards this Sunday, February 8, starting at 6:30 p.m., on City. To prep for the main event, let's review some of the talented parents to look out for on the red carpet and live on stage.

(Psssst! Catch me tweeting live—@cheaty and @todaysparent—and share your fave fashion and parent moments with me using the hashtags #cityGRAMMYs and #GRAMMYs. I may quote you in our "Moms who rock the GRAMMYs red carpet" roundup Monday.)

1. Beyoncé

Of course, Beyonce is up for more GRAMMY awards this year, and—goodie!—she'll be performing. The mom of one has six nominations: Album of the Year (Beyoncé); Best R&B Performance ("Drunk in Love"); Best R&B Song ("Drunk in Love"); Best Urban Contemporary Album (Beyoncé); Best Surround Sound Album (Beyoncé); and Best Music Film (Beyoncé & Jay Z: On The Run tour).

Just for fun, allow me to interrupt this roundup to give you my boyfriend Will Ferrell lip-syncing "Drunk in Love" on Jimmy Fallon's show (he also lip-sync's Frozen's "Let It Go" around 6:30 minutes in!):


To be extra extra clear, dad-of-three Will Ferrell is not nominated for any GRAMMY awards this year. 

2. Kanye West

People love to hate Kanye West, but I find him thoroughly entertaining—probably for the all the reasons people love to hate him. This year, Kanye is up for two awards: Best Rap/Sung Collaboration ("Bound 2," featuring Charlie Wilson) and Best Rap Song ("Bound 2"). He'll also be performing alongside Rihanna and Sir Paul McCartney. And that is going to be awesome.

3. Pink
