How To Stream The 2018 Grammys So You Don't Miss A Single Thing
For the first time in 15 years, New York will be hosting the Grammys and man, what a time to be alive. Taking place at New York City's Madison Square Garden and having The Late Late Show's James Corden at the helm as our host is basically setting this year's Grammys up for some epic memories. And if you're like me, you'll be damned if you miss any award show, especially the Grammys. And don't worry, you won't – thanks to us. We've got you covered, and will tell you how to stream the 2018 Grammys so that you won't miss one minute of your favorite artists looking – and sounding – incredible.
According to the Grammy's website, you can watch the Grammys on CBS, where they will be airing a "GRAMMY Red Carpet Live," which is labeled as a "live entertainment special hosted by "Entertainment Tonight's" Nancy O'Dell, Kevin Frazier, and Keltie Knight immediately prior to the 60th GRAMMYs broadcast." Ooh, can someone say fancy?
To tune in to the red carpet, just head over to E! at 5:30 p.m. ET, then switch channels to CBS at 6:30 p.m. ET. Then get pumped, because at 7:30 p.m. ET, the Grammys will officially start. Yay!
So what all of this means is basically, tune in to E! or CBS to watch your favorite artists – everyone from Bruno Mars to Lady Gaga – dressed in their Sunday's best.
And speaking of Lady Gaga, our girl will actually be performing at the Grammys this year, alongside artists like P!nk, Childish Gambino, and Little Big Town, so get your ears ready for some heavenly music.
Also NBD, but Patti LuPone, who is basically Broadway royalty, will be reprising her performance of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" as a way of honoring composers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein, so be sure to have tissues on hand if you're the kind of person who becomes emotionally invested in songs (i.e. me).
Pattie LuPone is a queen, so don't ever get it twisted.

Looking at you, Kendrick Lamar's “Humble.”
