The Grammys are this Sunday! It’s music’s biggest night, where the spotlight shines bright on singers and songwriters from near and far. There will be more glitz and glam than you can shake a stick at, and the superstars of music are sure not to disappoint with over-the-top performances. If you’re planning on hosting your own Grammy party, we’ve put together winning dishes that are inspired by the nominees’ songs. You can nosh on all the nibbles while you watch LL Cool J as the host with the most and wait to hear those three words: “The envelope please …”
Record of the Year Nominee: Adele, Rolling in the Deep 1 of 13There's no mistaking the big, bold, timeless voice of Adele. We think she'd get a kick out of, well, rolling the perfect cinnamon rolls.

Record of the Year Nominee: Katy Perry, Firework 2 of 13From her colorful hair to her spunk, Katy Perry personifies fireworks. We think she'd love these firework cupcakes in honor of her catchy song.

Record of the Year Nominee: Bruno Mars, Grenade 3 of 13Bruno Mars says he'd take a grenade for you! But no need to go that far — try these volcano potatoes instead, which "explode" in a tastier way than the typical grenade.

Record of the Year Nominee: Mumford & Sons, The Cave 4 of 13Stick your fork into any of these lava cakes, and they're sure to cave in immediately — and ooze out fudge, of course.

Album of the Year Nominee: Adele, 21 5 of 13In just 21 short years, Adele is already a musical force to be reckoned with. What better way to celebrate 21 than with a selection of champagne cocktails?!

Album of the Year Nominee: Rihanna, Loud 6 of 13With her party anthem songs, Princess RiRi personifies loud — and hot. So we've found a food that sizzles just like she does.

Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Nominee: Sum 41, Blood In My Eyes 8 of 13We didn't feel the need to be so, er, literal with this one. Besides, blood oranges and cake are a much better vision for our eyes!
Make blood orange cake
Best Country/Duo Group Performance Nominee: Kenny Chesney, You and Tequila 9 of 13Gotta love a country song that cuts right to the chase. We think even Kenny would go crazy for this manly meal — starring tequila!
Make steak with mushroom tequila sauce
Best Pop Duo/Group Performance: Coldplay, Paradise 10 of 13Straight from the heavens, angel cake is light, airy, and pretty much paradise on a plate. Maybe Gwyneth could whip this up for her hubby and his bandmates?
Make angel food cake
Best Country Solo Performance: Blake Shelton, Honey Bee 11 of 13Just in time for Valentine's Day. I think even Blake's honey, fellow country star Miranda Lambert, would love these chocolate honey truffle cups.

Best Country Song: Thompson Square, Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not 12 of 13No kiss? No problem. Make this 1-minute Hershey's kiss mug cake instead.
