The 65th Grammy Awards will broadcast live on February 5 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount Plus. The annual ceremony brings together music’s superstars and honors the best songs and albums of the year. 

The 2023 Grammys recognizes music released during the eligibility period, between October 1, 2021, and September 30, 2022. Top nominees include artists like Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Adele, Bad Bunny, Lizzo, Harry Styles, Steve Lacy, and Mary J. Blige. Check out a complete list of 2023 nominees here

Trevor Noah returns to host the show for the third year. The event — which returns to the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles — will feature several performances throughout the night. Artists set to take the stage include Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Sam Smith, and Lizzo. 

If you want to tune in to the live event, here’s how you can stream the Grammy Awards on February 5. 

How to watch the 2023 Grammys

You can watch the 2023 Grammy Awards live on February 5 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount Plus. Before the ceremony, you can stream the pre-show with interviews and red carpet footage via the live.grammy.com website starting at 3:30 p.m. ET.  

If you already have cable or a satellite pay-TV provider with CBS, you can stream the Grammys using your account information via the CBS website or the CBS App. 

If you don’t have cable, Paramount Plus is the cheapest way to stream the 2023 Grammys. Paramount Plus starts at $5 a month, but the entry-level plan doesn’t include livestreaming access to CBS. To livestream the Grammys on Paramount Plus, you’ll need the Premium plan for $10 a month. 

CBS is also available through several live TV streaming services, including YouTube TV, FuboTV, and Hulu + Live TV. Full channel lineups vary and starting prices range between $65 and $70 a month. Though more expensive than Paramount Plus, these services offer a complete lineup of live channels in addition to CBS, so they can serve as a full substitute for cable.

Can I watch the Grammys for free?

You can stream the 2023 Grammy Awards for free if you sign up for a Paramount Plus Premium free trial. Paramount Plus currently offers new subscribers one week of free streaming access. After your first seven days, your plan will renew for the regular rate unless you cancel.

CBS is also available as a free channel through over-the-air TV with a digital TV antenna.

How to watch the 2023 Grammys securely outside the US

If you’re outside the US, you might be in a region that doesn’t have streaming access to the Grammys. An easy way to watch the awards show when traveling outside the US is through a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN will ensure you can access your account and stream the Grammys no matter where you are, while creating a more secure connection at the same time. 

If you’re looking for the best VPN, we recommend using NordVPN or ExpressVPN. Both services allow you to access Paramount Plus by connecting to servers within the US. NordVPN starts at $12 per month, while ExpressVPN starts at $13 per month. Both offer discounts when you sign up for annual plans, and both provide a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Note: The use of VPNs is illegal in certain countries and using VPNs to access region-locked streaming content might constitute a breach of the terms of use for certain services. Insider does not endorse or condone the illegal use of VPNs.
