The Grammy Awards are happening, finally, after a few COVID-related delays this Sunday, March 14th at 8pm EST/ 5pm PST. Trevor Noah will be hosting and, despite the pandemic, there will be masked performances from Billie Eilish, BTS, Cardi B and Harry Styles. The awards show won’t be taking place in its usual spot, the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but instead will be filmed at a different undisclosed building in L.A.

According to the show’s producer, Ben Winston, the audience can expect a “multi-stage, audience-free show that highlights the year’s creative triumphs, social justice movements, as well as COVID-19’s impact on the arts.” The show has hired a team of COVID safety officers who have surveyed the setup, and artists will enter the stage from different ends to minimize contact.

It’s sure to be an interesting musical show given there won’t be an audience, and like everything else during these weird times — it’s definitely going to be memorable.

How to Stream the Grammy Awards Without Cable

If you’ve plunged head-first into the streaming world and don’t have cable, you can easily stream the Grammy’s this Sunday on Paramount+, formerly known as CBS All-Access. They’re currently offering a free one-month trial of the service you can use to watch the award show free of charge.

Start Your Free Trial of Paramount+

Paramount+ is the newest streaming service to hit the scene and while some may be experiencing streaming-service-related fatigue, there are a few notable entertainment programs included in it worth noting.

Paramount+ will come with full access to a variety of CBS news channels, sports channels like the NFL and Masters, and family content from Peppa Pig and iCarly. Plus, plants start at just $5.99/month, so it’s on the cheaper end, and you can cancel at any time.

How to Watch With Cable

Like the Super Bowl, the Grammy Awards will be available to watch on CBS or CBS.com, if you’ve got cable and want to sign in via your TV provider. You can also access cable for free in the right area with the right TV antenna, if you’re interested in investing in a new piece of equipment. Here’s one of our favorites for accessing hundreds of channels:
