Billie Eilish, Nas, BTS and Lil Nas X will all be performing at the 64th Grammy Awards – the biggest night in music, on, then off, then back on again in Sin City. To paraphrase host Trevor Noah, it's a front-row ticket to one of the best music concerts of the year, and you can follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a 2022 Grammys live stream online wherever you are.

Grammys live stream 2022

Date: Sunday, April 3

Time: 8pm ET / 5pm PT / 1am BST / 10am AEST

Venue: MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas

Live stream: watch CBS with a FREE FuboTV trial or Paramount Plus 7-day FREE trial (US) | Citytv (CA)

Watch anywhere: try the world's best VPN 100% risk-free

One artist who isn't scheduled to perform is Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West. Noah's apparently in Ye's bad books after a joke about his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, and considering what went down between Will Smith and Chris Rock at last weekend's Oscars, keeping them apart may well be wise.

Forget Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and Olivia Rodrigo; Jon Batiste - the bandleader on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - is this year's most nominated artist, and is set to duke it out with the A-listers for the Record of the Year and Album of the Year, two of the biggest awards of the night.

It's one of the highlights of the awards season, so read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 Grammys live stream from anywhere. We've also listed the Grammy Awards performances and Grammy nominees further down the page.

How to watch the Grammy Awards in the US

8pm ET / 5pm PTSunday, April 3

The 2022 Grammys are airing on CBS at 8pm ET / 5pm PT on Sunday, April 3.

If you have the channel on cable, you can tune in on linear TV or watch on-demand on the CBS website. You'll need to sign in with your cable provider details.

Watch the Grammys 2022 without cable in the US

stream the Grammys on Paramount Plus, which costs just $4.99 per month after a FREE 7-day Paramount Plus trial

For cord cutters, you can stream the Grammys on Paramount Plus, which costs just $4.99 per month after a FREE 7-day Paramount Plus trial.

It's bursting with top shows like the Halo TV series1883: A Yellowstone Origin Story, all things Star Trek, and live sports action from CBS.

Another alternative is an over-the-top streaming service, and our recommendation would be FuboTV, which is a complete cable replacement carrying more than 100 channels and starting from $64.99 a month. 

Better still, there's a FREE 7-day FuboTV trial on offer so you can try before you buy - and cancel if you're not a fan.

Away from the US but want to watch the same streaming coverage you do when at home? You got it - just grab a great VPN deal and follow our instructions above to get started.

How to watch a 2022 Grammys live stream from outside your country

Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of the 2022 Grammys from somewhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem - geo-blocking.

That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for streamers all over the world, but there's an easy solution. 

Downloading a VPN service will allow you to stream the Grammy Awards online from anywhere. It's a simple bit of software that changes your IP address, meaning that you can access on-demand content or live TV just as if you were at home.

Can I watch the 2022 Grammys in the UK, Australia and anywhere else?

Unfortunately it looks like the 64th Grammys are only being televised in the US and Canada, with countries like the UK and Australia missing out on the 2022 awards entirely.

If you're a US or Canadian citizen abroad, your best option for watching your country's coverage is use one of the best VPN service providers.

VPNs change your IP address to appear to be in a completely different location while keeping you and your browsing data safe and encrypted. Do bear in mind that some paid streaming services require a credit card based in the same country as the service.

However, anyone can watch the pre-event Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony on the Grammys website and YouTube FREE online wherever they are.

It features performances from an array of Grammy Award nominees, including Jimmie Allen, Ledisi, Mon Laferte, Allison Russell, and Madison Cunningham.

The Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony precedes the main awards show, starting at 3.30pm ET / 12.30pm PT, which is 8.30pm BST in the UK or 5.30am AEST on Monday morning in Australia.
