Diana Ross, Gil Scott-Heron, Glen Campbell to receive Lifetime Achievement awards at the Grammys

The music awards ceremony takes place on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles

Diana Ross is set to receive her first ever Grammy at the music awards ceremony next year.

The former Supremes vocalist will be given a Lifetime Achievement award at the February 12 event in Los Angeles, as will Allman Brothers Band, Glen Campbell, Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Jones, the Memphis Horns and Gil Scott-Heron, who died earlier this year.

Apple boss Steve Jobs, who also passed away in 2011, will be honoured at the ceremony as well. He has been named as one of the recipients of the Trustees Award, which recognises “outstanding contributions to the industry in a non-performing capacity”, says the official Grammy website. The iPod creator will be recognized for devising “products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies and books”.


Kanye West has received the highest number of nominations the 54th annual Grammy Awards, with seven nods. The rapper is vying for gongs for his solo work and tracks from ‘Watch The Throne’, his collaboration album with Jay-Z, while Foo Fighters have also racked up six nominations.

Adele is also among the nominees, shortlisted for Album Of The Year for ’21’ and Best Solo Pop Performance. ‘Rolling In The Deep’ is also up for Record Of The Year, where she’ll go up against the likes of Mumford and Sons (‘The Cave’) and Bon Iver (‘Holocene’).
