MUSIC’S BIGGEST NIGHT
2018 Grammy Awards: How to Watch, Live Stream
Here’s how to tune into the biggest night in the music business.
The 60th annual Grammy Awards, which the Recording Academy calls “Music's Biggest Night®,” is Sunday, January 28, at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Late Late Show’s James Corden will host the event for the second year in a row, which will broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
This year’s awards are sure to be a sight, given the current political climate, list of nominees, and star-studded bill of performers.
As the #MeToo movement continues, all eyes will be on the music industry. Attendees of this year’s show will reportedly wear white roses to honor survivors of sexual assault and harassment, perhaps signalling that the music industry will not escape skepticism for much longer.
This year’s list of Album of the Year nominees includes no white men for the first time, with Childish Gambino (Awaken, My Love!), Jay-Z (4:44), Kendrick Lamar (DAMN.), Lorde (Melodrama), and Bruno Mars (24K Magic) all vying for the award. Currently, Georg Solti has the most Grammy awards—31 to be exact—followed by Quincy Jones with 27. But if you were curious: Beyonce has 22 Grammys (and is tied with U2). Both Kanye West and Jay-Z are tied at 21.
This year’s “Lifetime Achievement Award” will go to a number of major music all-stars, including Tina Turner, Emmylou Harris, Queen, Hal Blaine, the Meters, and Louis Jordan. Neil Diamond, who recently announced his retirement from music following his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, will also be honored.
Here’s how to tune in.
