When and how to watch the 2021 Grammy Awards

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS, the streaming service Paramount+ and Grammy.com.

WASHINGTON — The Recording Academy’s 63rd annual Grammy Awards are right around the corner. 
The award show, which recognizes excellence in music, is scheduled to air on March 14. It was postponed nearly two months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Other award shows like the Golden Globes, the Oscars and the SAG Awards also delayed their shows.
In June, Recording Academy Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. told Variety that he was preparing a few different show options depending on the severity of the pandemic, but all options did not include moving the date of the show. However, in September the organization decided to push back the Jan. 31 show to March.
Officials with the award show said in a statement on Sept. 5, 2020, that the “deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles” of hospitals being overwhelmed, ICUs reaching capacity, and updated state health guidance, was reason enough to push back the awards.

“We’re trying to build the next evolution of the Academy, and the show will go hand-in-hand with that. Whether it’s with a crowd or not, we’re going to try to take things to the next level,” Mason told Variety in June.
The Recording Academy said songs and albums released between Sept. 1, 2019, and Aug. 31, 2020, were eligible for nominations this year.
