Where can I watch the Grammys 2021 in the UK?

Many music fans in the UK have been wondering how they can watch the star-studded awards show.

The Grammys aired live on CBS from 8pm ET in the US on Sunday 14 March.

Those in the UK with subscriptions to Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk TV and Plusnet will have been able to view red carpet coverage on E! if they managed to stay up late enough.

In years gone by, UK channels like 4Music have broadcast highlights from the event a day or two after it is shown in the US.

But so far, there is no way to watch the full Grammys ceremony in the UK.

However, you are able to watch individual performances, such as Harry Styles’ Watermelon Sugar, via the Recording Academy’s official YouTube channel.
