Music's biggest night is almost here and soon you can watch the Grammys 2022 live stream. Some of the music industry's biggest stars will be on hand to perform, present and hopefully take home awards. 

The 64th Grammy Awards were delayed a couple months due to the COVID-19 omicron surge, but the ceremony is going full-steam ahead at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah will host for the second year in a row.

Grammys 2022 date, start time

The 64th Annual Grammy Awards are set to air Sunday, April 3 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on CBS. 

Jon Batiste earned a leading 11 Grammy nominations, with Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and H.E.R. nabbing eight apiece. Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish aren't far behind with seven nods. Many award pundits believe Rodrigo could become just the third artist in Grammy history to sweep the Big Four categories of album, record and song of the year, as well as best new artist. 

Among the performers are Rodrigo, Eilish, Foo Fighters, Lil Nas X with Harlow, Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile and BTS (possibly with Jungkook, who recently tested positive for COVID-19). One major star who won't be performing is Kanye West, due to what Grammy organizers cited as his "erratic and troubling public behavior."

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the Grammys 2022 live stream online. Plus, scroll down for the list of the big four category nominations below.
