The 64th Annual Grammy Awards is finally happening on April 3 with a live audience and performances.

It was originally scheduled to take place at Crypto.com Arena (formerly Staples Center) in Los Angeles on Jan. 31, but it was postponed due to a surge in local COVID-19 cases. Shortly after, it was announced that the Grammys would relocate to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Here on the West Coast, fans can tune into “music’s biggest night” on CBS and Paramount+ at 5 p.m. The ceremony can also be streamed live and on-demand on Paramount+, CBS.com and the CBS app, though a cable subscription is required. The red carpet will be streamed starting at 3:30 p.m. at grammy.com and E! will begin its “Live from the Red Carpet” coverage at 3 p.m. The premiere ceremony, where a bulk of the 86 awards are given out, will livestream starting at 12:30 p.m. at grammy.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel. It will be hosted by LeVar Burton and feature performances by Jimmie Allen, Ledisi, Mon Laferte and Allison Russell.

Comedian Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show” will return as host of the main ceremony. So far, the Recording Academy has announced that there will be performances by jazz/R&B singer-songwriter and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” bandleader Jon Batiste, who leads the pack with 11 nominations including album and record of the year.

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Billie Eilish, who swept the big four Grammy categories in 2020, will perform. She received seven nominations for “Happier Than Ever,” including album, record and song of the year. If she scores the record of the year award, she’ll be the first person to win that honor three years in a row. “Good 4 U” singer and former Murrieta resident Olivia Rodrigo is also up for seven awards (many in the same category as Eilish) and she’s scheduled to take the Grammy stage as well.

BTS, who sold out four nights at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood in 2021, will perform, and if they win in the best pop duo/group performance category with the song “Butter,” they’ll be the first K-pop band to win a Grammy.

Other performers include Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s Silk Sonic, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, J Balvin, Maria Bercerra, H.E.R., Brothers Osborne, Lil Nas X, Jack Harlow, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton, Leslie Odom Jr. and Cynthia Erivo. L.A. rock band Foo Fighters, who received three nominations for the album “Medicine at Midnight,” had previously been announced as performers before the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. The band has since canceled all its upcoming tour dates and appearances. CBS’ executive vice president of specials, music and live events Jack Sussman told Variety earlier this week that producers are working on a tribute to Hawkins during the ceremony.
