For the first time in more than a decade, the GRAMMY Awards are going to New York City. This campaign will offer one lucky winner and their guest two first-class round-trip flights to New York City. While in New York, the winner and their guest will stay at the New York Hilton Midtown and experience modern style right in the heart of Manhattan, within walking distance to a multitude of famous attractions.

The winner and their guest will experience the GRAMMY in the Schools Live! concert on Jan. 25 at the Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall at the New School.

The winner and their guest will attend the annual MusiCares Person of the Year gala honoring Fleetwood Mac on Jan. 26 at Radio City Music Hall. They'll get a preview of the show at artist rehearsals, walk the red carpet at the event, and enjoy the star-studded tribute to Fleetwood Mac and exclusive Person of the Year after-party celebration. At the end of the night, the winner will go home with an artist gift bag.

The winner and their guest will also receive a sneak preview of the GRAMMY Awards telecast by watching artist rehearsals and taking a backstage tour. On the day of the show, they’ll receive platinum tickets to the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast at Madison Square Garden, and finish the night with GRAMMY Celebration® after-party passes. They will also go home with the exclusive GRAMMY Awards telecast gift bag given to artists and VIPs.
