It's almost time! If you're not ready to watch Verzuz: Gladys Knight vs Patti LaBelle tonight, we'll get you there. The soul legends are going to make for a lovely night of hits, and we're eager to watch.

What is Verzuz? When does the big battle go down? How can you watch online? We've got the answers to all these questions. We're as excited as LaBelle, who's admitted this matchup is putting her up against one of her personal idols.

For those unfamiliar with Verzuz, these shows are like DJ battles, where each superstar plays one of their hits, and the public reacts and decides (in the comments and on social media) who won. 

This duel comes a short while after Ludacris waxed Nelly and his bad internet connection in a battle that almost got called off, and the Brandi vs Monica and Snoop Dogg vs DMX battles, which were far more successful.

Competitors chat during the festivities, and so far things have been cordial yet competitive, making for an entertaining night's watch. 

Here's our look (via Apple Music) into the studio, and here's everything you need to watch Verzuz: Gladys Knight vs Patti LaBelle.

If you're a Spotify user, then you'll skip Apple Music and open the Verzuz IG account and click on the LIVE button. They may direct you to the individual artists' accounts, we'll see then.

There's typically a short wait from the 8 p.m. ET start time before the actual festivities begin, so you have time to pour a nice beverage if you haven't already.
