Cue the music! Because there will be lots of it when the 61st Grammy Awards air Sunday night.

We've logged all the pertinent info you need to know, so here we go:

WHAT TIME IS THE SHOW AND WHERE CAN I WATCH IT?

The Recording Academy's annual show caps off a week of music-related events. The Grammy Awards will be doled out in two ceremonies: The first is a pre-telecast event during which the majority of awards will be given; and a second, live broadcast on CBS that will feature a star-studded musical lineup peppered with the awards for new artist, record, album and song of the year, among others.

The televised 61st Grammy Awards will return to their local haunt -- Staples Center in Los Angeles -- and will be broadcast live on CBS starting at 8 p.m. Eastern on Sunday.

The show, again produced by longtime producer Ken Ehrlich, honors the best recordings released between Oct. 7, 2017 and Sept. 30, 2018. So if your favorite artist wasn't nominated (and we're not talking about those who were snubbed), you might want to double check when their singles or albums dropped.

Before that show gets underway, the bulk of the nominees and winners will attend the Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony, which takes place next door at Microsoft Theater from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Eastern. Recording artist Shaggy will host the festivities, which will be streamed live internationally on grammy.com.

After that, the academy will host a red-carpet live-stream that begins at 5 p.m. Eastern.

WHO IS HOSTING?

The Grammys have tapped a big-name host -- unlike, you know, the Academy Awards -- and it's 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys. The show has previously been hosted by rapper LL Cool J and "The Late Late Show" star James Corden.
