The Ultimate GRAMMY Viewer's Guide
Each year the GRAMMY Awards telecast delivers iconic music moments that ripple through all parts of popular culture. More than just an awards show, the GRAMMYs has the power to influence fans (engaging in a game of Lorde karaoke), artists, fashion (Pharrell Williams' hat), social media, and music sales. This is what we call "The GRAMMY Effect," and it can even manifest itself in a metal fan headbanging to Taylor Swift.
What happens on the GRAMMY stage transcends the show itself, and music fans everywhere are looking forward to seeing what the 57th GRAMMY telecast brings on Feb. 8.
With GRAMMY Week in full force, we want to make sure you experience the full GRAMMY.com Effect too. So, we've created this Ultimate GRAMMY Viewer's Guide to ensure you don't miss a thing, without even leaving your couch.
Beginning Monday, Feb. 2, the GRAMMY live-blog will be your one-stop destination for breaking GRAMMY Week news, photos and more. Then on Feb. 8 it will segue into the only official live-blog complement to Music's Biggest Night. Beginning at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT, join us for exclusive coverage of the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony before we dive into one hour of exclusive red-carpet coverage as the stars arrive in style. Then, as you tune in to the telecast beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, join us for up-to-the-minute commentary on the telecast, breaking news and reactions on this year's GRAMMY winners, the only live updates you'll find anywhere from the GRAMMY "mosh pit." And, of course, to share your thoughts during the performances and as winners are announced.
