The stage is set and downtown Los Angeles is gearing up for the biggest night in music awards. Rehearsals are on in full swing for the 54th Grammy Awards to be held in LA on Sunday, and the security of the entire area surrounding Staples Center, where the event will take place, has been beefed up with burly bouncers in plenty.



While fans often gather around the Center with posters of their idols for autographs, the artists are trying to rehearse for their grand performance in closed quarters.



Singer Adele, who will perform for the first time since her throat surgery, made sure all windows to her rehearsals on February 10 were closed to ensure that now she is seen by her fans, only on the big day.

"She is gorgeous and has a perfect voice. I bet she is going to win it big and I don't mind if I couldn't see her today," Able J, an Adele fan, told us outside the venue.



Adele has six nominations, one less than that of rapper Kanye West at the ceremony this year. Meanwhile, fans cheered for singer Paul McCartney as he came on Friday evening for a charity auction.



The Grammys will air in India on Monday on Vh1.
