The Grammy Awards have come around yet again! While we’ve all got pretty used to the concept of a virtual awards ceremony, 2021 marks the first time this annual celebration of music will happen online (it usually takes place in January so last year’s occurred just before we were all forced into full pandemic mode). After being postponed for nearly two months, it’s finally back and set to be EPIC, giving us a chance to see a whole host of music artists take home gongs as well as a pretty awesome line-up of performances. Sunday blues? Not this weekend.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Grammy Awards 2021…
When are the Grammys 2021?
The 63rd Grammys are taking place on Sunday 14 March, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. They start at 8pm Eastern Time, which is 1am on Sunday 15 March in the UK. Planning on staying up? You might wanna schedule your Sunday afternoon nap pronto.
Who will host the Grammys?
Comedian Trevor Noah is hosting the 2021 ceremony for the first time. Despite taking place virtually, he’s hoping the show won’t disappoint music lovers. He told Billboard in an interview, “it won’t have that depressing ‘Oh, man, look at all of us stuck at home’ [feel]. I’m so tired of that imagery, I’m not going to lie to you, it’s everywhere. Some TV shows have adopted it for their dramas or whatever. If it’s not current affairs, I’m like, ‘Take me away on whatever flight of fantasy you can.’ Luckily, the Grammys can.”
How to watch in the UK
While there’s no easy way to watch the ceremony in the UK unless you have VPN access for CBS, the Grammys red carpet will be available to watch on Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalkTV and Plusnet.
