The Grammys, like the Academy Awards for the film industry, are considered the highest honor. The Grammy Awards were established in 1958 and by 1971 were regularly televised on ABC. In recent years the Grammy Awards show has become known as an event for a diverse group of popular artists to exhibit unique fashion, superstar musical performances, memorable acceptance speeches and outrageous moments.
This year's nominees include Coldplay, Radiohead, Ne-Yo, Lil Wayne and more. Performers for this year's 51st annual awards show include Sir Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake and Radiohead.
To celebrate The Grammys, magazine retailer Magazines.com will feature discounted magazine subscriptions for music, entertainment and fashion magazines like Rolling Stone, Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, InStyle, Alarm, Vanity Fair, Vibe, W, Elle, M, Marie Claire, Billboard and Blender at up to 90 percent off cover prices.
Magazines.com is proud to feature three top-selling music magazines during this year's Grammy Awards. These top music magazines are Rolling Stone, Billboard and Blender magazines.

Billboard magazine maintains music charts like the Billboard Hot 100, measuring the ranking of songs and also the Billboard 200, which ranks album sales. Still, Blender magazine's editorial focus takes an edgier stance on the world of music.
