It’s music’s biggest night once again: The 58th Grammy Awards will take place Monday, jumping from the usual Sunday-night time slot to bestow numerous gilded gramophones on the industry’s creme de la creme.
WHAT TIME DOES THE SHOW START? WHAT CHANNEL?
As usual, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences holds two ceremonies: the pre-telecast ceremony, where approximately 70 of the some 80 awards are handed out and the main telecast ceremony where splashy performances take place and the winners in the major, more general categories are revealed.
The main event, which takes place across the way at Staples Center, will air on CBS from 5 to 8:30 p.m. PST.
WHO IS HOSTING?
Rapper, “NCIS: Los Angeles” star and two-time Grammy Award winner LL Cool J will head up the telecast for the fifth consecutive year.
Actor-comedian Jay Mohr, who’s up for a Grammy in the comedy album category, will host the pre-telecast ceremony.
Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with 11 nominations, pop darling Taylor Swift trails him with seven nominations, and R&B star the Weeknd is up for seven as well. All three performers have nominations sprinkled throughout three of the big four categories, with all three going up against country group Alabama Shakes and singer Chris Stapleton in the album of the year category.
