The 66th Grammy Awards will be held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 4 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. For the fourth year in a row, Trevor Noah will serve as the ceremony’s host. It will telecast live on CBS and stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
The main Grammy ceremony will also be accessible to Showtime and Paramount+ customers in the United States on-demand and through the live stream of their local CBS affiliate. In the United States alone, Paramount+ Essential customers will receive on-demand access the following day.
The majority of the day’s Grammys will be awarded during the pre-show Premiere Ceremony, which begins at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m. PT on Sunday. It will be streamed live on live.Grammy.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube site. The host is Justin Tranter, a songwriter and producer.
Live.Grammy.com will also feature additional content from Sunday’s programme, including performances, acceptance speeches, backstage photos, a red carpet special, and the entire Premiere Ceremony webcast.
This year’s performers include SZA, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Billy Joel, Burna Boy, Luke Combs, and Travis Scott. The performers are always the finest part of the programme. In addition, Joni Mitchell is scheduled to appear on a Grammy show for the first time, while U2 will join in to perform live from Sphere in Las Vegas.
SZA is up for nine Grammy Awards, including Record, Album, and Song of the Year for her songs “Kill Bill” and “SOS.” There are seven nominations each for Phoebe Bridgers, Serban Ghenea, and Victoria Monét; there are six nominations each for Jack Antonoff, Jon Batiste, boygenius, Brandy Clark, Miley Cyrus, Eilish, Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift.
Swift is one of five artists to receive nominations in each of the three major categories, alongside SZA, Batiste, Cyrus, Rodrigo, and Eilish. Swift, who dominated 2023 with her Eras Tour concerts and movie, along with her new album Midnights, is nominated for Album of the Year (Midnights), Song of the Year (“Anti-Hero”), and Record of the Year.
Swift would become the first person to win the Album category prize four times if she won; at the moment, she is tied for third place with a group that also includes Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, and Stevie Wonder.
Speaking of Eilish, she’s also quite well-known. The soundtrack to Barbie, the highest-grossing film of 2023, which has received eight Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture, and eleven Grammy nominations, will be released on Sunday. Song of the Year and Record of the Year are being considered for Eilish’s “What Was I Made For” from the soundtrack, with Lipa’s “Dance the Night” competing in the latter category. The film received nominations for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media, Best Rap Song (Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice), and Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt’s soundtrack.
Watch out for the highly anticipated Best New Artist category, which this year includes The War and Treaty, Monét, Ice Spice, Gracie Abrams, Fred once more, Jelly Roll, Coco Jones, and Noah Kahan. Rodrigo won the Grammy the year before, and Samara Joy won it the year before that.
