LOS ANGELES — Music's biggest night is back in Los Angeles after the pandemic upended the last few ceremonies.

Sunday's 65th Grammy Awards marks a welcome return to familiar form for the annual awards show. Attendees will make their way to Crypto.com Arena in downtown L.A. for a night of performances, and certainly snubs and surprises.

In 2022, the Grammys were held for the first time at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in April, months later than its usual spot. The year before that, the Grammys opted for a pandemic-conscious show "in and around" the Los Angeles Convention Center, walking distance from the then-Staples Center.

With Beyoncé leading the pack with the most nominations — and with "Renaissance" considered a shoo-in for album of the year — here's what to know about Sunday's show.

What time is the ceremony and how can I watch?

The 65th Grammy Awards will air live at 5 p.m. Pacific on CBS and will be available to stream on Paramount+. Viewers can also watch the show on cbs.com and the CBS app for free with a TV provider sign-in.


Before the Sunday evening ceremony, the Recording Academy will stream its Premiere Ceremony pre-show live on its YouTube page and on live.grammy.com at 12:30 p.m. Pacific. The pre-ceremony stream will announce the winners for the non-televised categories.

Who is hosting?

Comedian Trevor Noah is returning for more Grammys goodness as he hosts the awards show for a third consecutive year. Noah's Grammys hosting gig comes months after he bid farewell to Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" after seven years.

"It has also been interesting because of the journey. The first one was [during] COVID-19, and it was a completely different way to make the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions [in Los Angeles], and that was a different type of show," he said in a December interview with Billboard. "Now it's exciting [because] it'll be the first one for me back in L.A. — that's hopefully not just normal, but different for the right reasons."
