With more than 90 awards to hand out this year, the Grammys can’t afford to limit itself to a single televised event. Enter the Premiere Ceremony.
Streaming live at 3:30/2:30c, the Justin Tranter-hosted event will give out the first awards of the year. In fact, more Grammy winners will be announced during the Premiere Ceremony than during the main event, which will air live at 8 pm on CBS.
