How to Watch the 2018 Grammy Awards for Free
The 60th annual Grammy Awards are happening this Sunday, Jan. 28, and for the first time in 15 years, the music industry's biggest night will be live from New York City.
James Corden is hosting the Grammys this year, which is slated to air Sunday at CBS at 7:30 p.m. (E.T.), for the second year in a row. Some A-list entertainers including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Sam Smith and Bruno Mars are all expected to take the stage at Madison Square Garden, where the show will be broadcast live.
The Grammys recognize outstanding achievements in music, and this year, rapper and entertainment mogul Jay-Z is nominated in every category, though according to Billboard magazine, he is not scheduled to perform.
Whether you're trying to tune in with or without cable, here are all the ways you can watch and stream the Grammys.
CBS is airing the 2018 Grammys, so if you have a TV you can watch in real-time. Simply check the CBS website to find your local channel number. The Grammys start at 7:30 p.m. (E.T.), 8:30 p.m. (C.T.), and 4:30 p.m. (P.T.) Or, if you want to tune in early and catch the Grammys pre-show, CBS will also host a Facebook live on its Facebook page.

If you can't tune in live on Sunday night, the show will be replayed on CBS.com and other CBS platforms on Monday. You may still need All Access membership to watch the replay.
And you'll also be able to find some of the performances on CBS' YouTube page if you don't care about the whole show and only want to catch your favorite singer.
