Music’s biggest night is coming early this year.
The 2020 Grammys, the 63rd annual event, are set for Jan. 26, a full two weeks ahead of when last year’s ceremony was held, at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Still, the night promises to deliver everything viewers want in an awards show, including drama over who takes home the awards, drama over the fashion and drama over the one-night-only performances.
As usual, the show airs on CBS, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. No cable? No problem. Music fans can catch the Grammys on CBS All Access, too, which offers a free, one-week trial.
Those who do tune in will see performances from Lizzo; Ariana Grande; Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton; Billie Eilish; and Aerosmith, to name a few. Demi Lovato also will make her first solo appearance at the Grammys and her first major performance since her overdose in July 2018. Then there’s the tribute to late artist Nipsey Hussle, scheduled to feature John Legend, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled and more.
Alicia Keys is hosting this year’s event, where Lizzo is the most nominated artist. She has a shot at eight (!) trophies. Eilish and Lil Nas X are both close behind her with six nominations each.
All three of the night’s top nominees will face off with each other and five more musicians — Black Pumas; Maggie Rogers; Rosalia; Tank and the Bangas; and Yola — in the category of Best New Artist.
Whatever happens, the night will have a killer soundtrack.
