The 60th annual Grammy Awards is set to air on Sunday, January 28th at 4:30 p.m. PT. Hosted by James Corden for the second year, the ceremony will be held at Madison Square Garden for the first time since 2003. Rapper Jay-Z leads the nominations with a total of eight nods. The 2018 Grammy Awards will air on CBS.
So, how should viewers watch the 2018 Grammy Awards if they don’t have a TV or cable service provider?
The 2018 Grammy Awards will be available to stream online on CBS All Access. Since log-in credentials might be required, viewers without a subscription could take advantage of the free trial feature. With CBS All Access, viewers could stream from devices such as smartphones, iPads, Google Chromecast, or Apple TV. According to Tech Radar, viewers outside of the U.S. can stream through the U.K.’s 4Music channel.
For the first time, viewers will also be able to stream red carpet arrivals, pre-show coverage, and behind the scenes action on Facebook on The Recording Academy Facebook page and the CBS Facebook page starting at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET. Additionally, highlights from Grammys will be on Facebook Watch throughout the night.

The 2018 Grammy Awards will also feature performances from breakout artist Cardi B, SZA, U2, Khalid, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, and much more. Star of Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen Ben Platt is also slated to perform.
Vying for the award show’s coveted Album of the Year category are Childish Gambino’s Awaken, My Love!, Jay-Z’s 4:44, Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic, Lorde’s Melodrama, and Kendrick Lamar’s Damn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sunday’s 2018 music ceremony will also acknowledge the Time’s Up movement. Artists will reportedly be donning white roses to express solidarity with the Time’s Up and Me Too movements.
Between the acknowledgment of Hollywood’s pervasive sexual abuse problem and The Late Late Show with James Corden host leading the ceremony, we’re excited to see what the night will bring. Perhaps we’ll be graced with the ultimate “Carpool Karaoke” segment?
