Most music fans will not want to miss the 58th annual Grammy Awards ceremony, which is widely dubbed as the biggest night in music. Unfortunately, those without television sets will not be able to watch the 2016 awards presentation — or will they?

The ceremony will get under way on CBS at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Monday at 8 p.m. EST. A red-carpet show hosted by the E network will begin at 4 p.m. EST.
Rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J, who was born James Todd Smith, will host the ceremony for the fifth consecutive year. He has promoted the 2016 Grammy Awards on his official social media pages. “And this is why they call it Music's Biggest Night,” he wrote Tuesday, when he shared a list of stars scheduled to perform.
Besides No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani filming a music video during one of commercial breaks, there will be performances by A-list stars such as Adele, Demi Lovato, John Legend, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Meghan Trainor, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd. And Lady Gaga will perform a special tribute to David Bowie, who died of cancer at the age of 69 Jan. 10.
There’s tough competition in the Record of the Year category this year. The nominees are “Really Love” by D’Angelo, “Thinking Out Loud,” by Ed Sheeran, “Uptown Funk” by Markson featuring Bruno Mars, “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift and “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd.
