Clive to honor Lucian at the big party

PARTY ANIMALS, KINGS-OF-THE-JUNGLE EDITION: Clive Davis and the Recording Academy have chosen their guest of honor for His Cliveness’ annual Pre-Grammy Gala on the eve of Music’s Biggest Night. That would be none other than Lucian Grainge, the Master of All He Surveys. The UMG ruler will receive the President's Merit Award as the centerpiece of the 2014 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons (that’s a lotta purdy werds, ain’t it) during the party, which will take place on 1/25 at the Beverly Hilton. "As we enter our sixth year of collaborating with Clive Davis, this legendary gala continues to be one of Grammy Week's most prestigious events complete with unique one-of-a-kind performances," gushed Neil Portnow as only he can. "We are delighted and proud to pay tribute to Lucian Grainge, whose ability to spot talent and his impeccable business sense has made him one of today's most successful leaders and a visionary Industry Icon." How does Neil come up with this stuff? See you at the party! (11/21a)
