Taylor Swift is teaming up with LL Cool J again to host CBS's "Grammy Nominations Live!" special.

This news comes off a big week for Swift, who debuted her new album "Red" last Monday (Oct. 22). That record had a massive start and, though final numbers aren't expected in until tomorrow, "Red" has already sold 4.5 million song downloads on iTunes in the United States.

The 22-year-old singer has won six Grammys since her debut, and has hosted "Grammy Nominations Live!" before. She and LL Cool J teamed up back in 2008 as well for the first installment of the special. That year was also the first time she was nominated for a Grammy.

LL has gone on to host the CBS special every year since it was introduced, but this is Swift's first time back. Maroon 5 and Luke Bryan will both perform during the upcoming presentation. "Grammy Nominations Live!" will happen at the Bridgestone Area in Nashville, Tenn. and will air on Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
