The Grammys 2019 edition is around the corner. It holds o February 10, 2019, and it holding in Los Angeles. The last edition was held in New York City. This edition will be the 61st time the best music awards will hold in this country.
You’ll see Lady Gaga take home Best Pop Duo/Group for “Shallow,” the song you’ve mastered at every karaoke party since A Star Is Born was released. (Sadly, Bradley Cooper will be missing the festivities because of the BAFTAs in London.)
Grammy Awards Live Hopefully, the 2019 ceremony will include fun moments like the time Beyoncé was caught at her other job: being Blue Ivy Carter’s juice box and snack holder. Below, all the important stuff you need to know about Music’s Biggest Night:
Grammy Awards Live Stream For more early content, the Recording Academy has a pre-show starting at 5 p.m. on the Grammys Facebook page (you can also watch on the CBS Facebook page or CBS.com), hosted by “ET Live’s” Cassie DiLaura and Dana Blair.
The major awards will be handed out live on Sunday, February 10 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. CBS promises HDTV magic and 5.1 surround sound, so it’ll feel like you’re there—except you’ll be in your PJs watching everyone on TV wrinkle their fancy clothes in their seats. (You’re the real winner here, TBH.)
Alicia Keys will be the master of ceremonies, following the footsteps of recent hosts including James Corden (2017, 2018) and LL Cool J (2012-2016). Of course, Alicia is no stranger to the Grammys stage—she’s taken home a whopping 15 Grammy Awards, NBD.

About three years ago, songwriter Jonathan Singleton was at a bar in Nashville when a singer he didn’t recognize took the stage. Suddenly, the crowd started buzzing, as though a superstar had just arrived. “What is happening?” Singleton asked his friends, but they didn’t know, either. Singleton caught the singer’s name and then discreetly took out his phone to Google: Who is “Luke Combs”?
