The 60th Grammy Awards are this freakin’ weekend—Sunday night, people!—and we never do this, but it’s actually worth watching this year. Yeah, the Grammys are kind of overrated but there’s actually a lot to look forward to this time around: Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar are nominated for a whopping eight and seven awards, respectively; Lorde is nominated for her sophomore album Melodrama; Lil Uzi Vert is in the mix for Best New Artist; there are performances to tickle your fancy regardless of genre, and no white guys, for once, are in the running for Album of the Year, the night’s biggest award. Maybe the Recording Academy is doing something right?
If you’re finding yourself wanting to tune in this year, but don’t know how—listen, it’s fine, no one pays for cable anymore, and if you do, this guide is not for you. You can just turn on the dang thing and flip to CBS, like you already know how.
EVERYONE ELSE, LISTEN UP! Don’t have cable and want to watch the Grammys? It’s all good: You can watch the award show for free by signing up for a free trial of CBS All Access and stream the ceremony live, starting at 7:30 p.m. EST. You’ll need a valid credit card to sign up for the trial, and you will have to set an alarm for yourself a week from whenever you sign up to cancel your subscription, unless you want to get charged. (It costs $5.99 per month, or $9.99 per month for no-ads.)
While you’re watching, tune in to our Grammys liveblog—we’ll be watching and talkin’ smack all night. See you then!
