How to watch Grammys 2021 live stream online and without cable

The Grammys 2021 live stream is almost here. Taylor Swift is going for a third Album of the Year win for Folklore, which would put her in exclusive company with Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Frank Sinatra. But she has excellent competition in Dua Lipa’s disco-tastic Future Nostalgia.

The Grammys 2021 ceremony is taking place in Los Angeles and features a mix of live and pre-taped performances and remote appearances. The Recording Academy previously said that performers “be coming together, while still safely apart, to play music for each other as a community.”

Among those performers are Swift, Dua Lipa, last year’s Grammy winner Billie Eilish, Bad Bunny, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Doja Cat, Miranda Lambert, Post Malone, Chris Martin and others.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the Grammys 2021 live stream online.

When Are the Grammy Awards? Date, Time, Location

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards air live from Los Angeles this Sunday, March 14th at 8pm EST / 5pm PST with host Trevor Noah. Unlike the recent Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview, which aired at 8pm on both coasts, Sunday’s Grammy Awards will be simulcast live on both the East Coast and West Coast.

A special Grammys pre-show, dubbed the “63rd GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony,” takes place Sunday at 3pm EST / noon PST, and will be streamed live online at

While the Grammy Awards have typically been held at the Staples Center in downtown LA, organizers tell Rolling Stone that this year’s event will be held at an undisclosed building in LA that has been cleaned and vetted to be as Covid-safe as possible.
