As the 2012 Grammy Awards quickly approach, we’re learning more every week about who’s nominated, who’s hosting, who’s performing and what we can expect from music’s biggest night this year. This weekend, Taylor Swift was busy shooting on-air promos with this year’s host LL Cool J. Pictured here in their black attire standing beside the iconic gramophone, Swift and Cool J seem to have been enjoying the process.

Swift is up for three Grammys this year, including Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for ‘Mean,’ as well as Best Country Album for ‘Speak Now.’ These are in addition to the four Grammys she already has sitting on her career shelf.

And while the Grammys in recent years have eschewed the traditional awards show host for a variety of stars all presenting awards to their contemporaries, this year they have broken that seven-year pattern and invited Cool J to act as the official Master of Ceremonies. This comes after the rapper hosted the Grammy nominations concert four years in a row.

This year’s star-studded awards ceremony will take place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and will air live Sunday, Feb. 12 on CBS from 8-11:30 PM ET.
