2018 Grammy Awards: What time does the show start, who will win, who hosts the 60th annual Grammys on Jan. 28

The 60th annual edition of the Grammy Awards begin on CBS at 4:30 p.m. PT/7:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 28. Awards in the top dozen Grammy categories will be handed out at Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan during a three-and-a-half hour ceremony that airs live nationwide. “The Late Late Show” host James Corden emcees for the second year running.

While winners of the big awards like Album of the Year will be announced during the CBS show, upwards of 70 of the 84 Grammy Awards will be doled out earlier in the day at a non-televised event. The Premiere Ceremony begins at noon PT/3 p.m. ET and will be hosted by Paul Shaffer in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Be sure to check out our home page for the most up-to-date results.
