2016 Grammys: What Time It Starts and How to Watch the Live Stream Online
Music's biggest night is finally here! On Monday evening, the 58th Annual Grammy Awards will honor the most popular and influential artists in the business.
Airing on CBS and hosted by LL Cool J, the awards show will begin at 8 p.m. ET and run until approximately 11 p.m. Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar leads all artists with 11 total nominations, while pop superstar Taylor Swift and R&B singer The Weeknd have seven nods each. Those three artists will face off for the night's biggest prize—"Album of the Year"—along with Alabama Shakes and country newcomer Chris Stapleton.
Some of the night's biggest live performances will remember the late greats who have passed away since last year's ceremony: Lady Gaga will pay tribute to David Bowie; members of the Eagles, along with Jackson Browne, will honor Glenn Frey; and Stapleton plus Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt will remember blues legend B.B. King.
The pre-telecast ceremony from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. EST at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and will be available for viewing on grammy.com/live and CBS.com. The main show itself, live from the Staples Center, will air on the CBS broadcast network.
