You never know, they could end up saying their own name a few times...

Nelly Furtado, India.Arie, JA RULE, Outkast, TRAIN and Usher will all be present to announce nominations for the 2002 GRAMMY AWARDS at the BEVERLY HILLS HILTON on January 4.

The press conference comes ahead of the 44th annual Grammy ceremony, bound for the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 27.

This year’s ceremony was marked by a peculiar duet between Eminem and Elton John on the rapper’s worldwide hit ‘Stan’. Before the ceremony, a host of gay rights groups had vowed to picket the venue over a perceived homophobic stance by Eminem. The pickets never materialised in any significant number.
