The 64th annual Grammy Awards will be hosted by Trevor Noah for the second consecutive year, and will take place April 3 at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. It was previously postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans can watch the award ceremony on CBS, or through streaming services like Paramount+, fuboTV, Hulu+ Live TV, YouTube TV and Sling TV.
This year’s Grammys were previously postponed due to COVID concerns, and the ongoing spread of the Omicron variant. While it was originally meant to be held in January, it will now be held at the end of March.
