Grammy Awards 2020 live stream: How to watch online from anywhere

Often referred to as "Music's Biggest Night", the 62nd Grammy Awards are almost upon us. Presented by America's Recording Academy to recognise achievements in the music industry, it's an event that matches the Oscars for glitz and glamour as well as providing memorable live performances.

For the second year in a row, Alicia Keys will be hosting the event, and all eyes will be on the singer as to how she'll top the medley she performed during last year's show which saw her sing while simultaneously playing two pianos. In terms of nominations, Lizzo leads the pack this year with an impressive eight nods and is set to battle it out with teenager and fellow first-time nominee Billie Eilish for Song of the Year, with their respective massive hits Juice and Bad Guy. The pair will also be up against Lil Nas X for Best Album and Best Newcomer.

Big name acts like Camila Cabello, Tyler the Creator and Demi Lovato are all set to perform on the night, while a reunion of Aerosmith and Run DMC for a special performance of their revolutionary rock/rap classic Walk This Way is expected to be a highlight.

It looks like there's a hugely entertaining night is in store, and you won't need to miss a minute by getting a Grammy Awards 2020 live stream by following our guide below.
