Everything You Need to Know About the GRAMMY Awards

Given the headline-grabbing madness of the Oscars® on Sunday night, maybe the GRAMMY Awards want to reconsider an invite Kanye West after all.

Regardless, it’s always worth tuning-in to music’s biggest night. The 2022 GRAMMYs take place Sunday, April 3 and will once again feature the biggest stars in the world competing for the highest honor in music. Here’s everything you need to know about the 64th GRAMMY Awards. 


How to Watch

The GRAMMY Awards will air live on CBS, beginning at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. After being delayed from its original date, January 31, the show will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Before the telecast, check out the GRAMMYs YouTube channel to watch more than 70 GRAMMY Awards get handed out in a variety of genres.


Who is Hosting and Performing?

From the second year in row, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah will handle hosting duties. As for performers, GRAMMY favorite Billie Eilish and 2021 breakout star Olivia Rodrigo were among the first performers announced, along with country stars Brothers Osbourne and Album and Song of the Year nominee Brandi Carlile, Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow are expected to perform their GRAMMY-nominated hit “Industry Baby.” Perhaps the most anticipated performance will be from K-Pop supernovas BTS, H.E.R., Nas, Chris Stapleton, and the night’s leading nominee, Jon Batiste, have also been added as performers.

Tragically, the Foo Fighters were also announced as performers on March 24, the day before the death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins. While the future of the bad is unclear, expect Hawkins to be honored during the GRAMMYs “In Memoriam” segment, which will also feature a tribute to the recently departed Stephen Sondheim featuring Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt, and West Side Story star Rachel Zegler
