The Grammys have been around for more than 50 years, and through that time we've seen pretty much everything. From Nikki Minaj staging a fake exorcism during the show to Elton John performing with Lady Gaga.

But there is one new, completely unique thing happening at this Sunday's awards. For the first time, a video game score has been nominated for a Grammy.

Emily Reese from the video game music podcast, Top Score,  joins the show.
