Alicia Keys returns as host this year, with many of the top nominees also performing live. The 2020 Grammys will take place tonight (Sunday, January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. The ceremony will air on CBS.

If you’re a cord cutter who wants to watch the awards live on your phone, computer, or smart TV, you have a few different options. You can stream the telecast directly from the CBS website or via its mobile apps on iOS or Android, but you’ll need login credentials from a pay-TV provider.

No pay-TV credentials? Don’t panic. There are other ways to watch CBS, including a number of streaming services that offer the network as part of a bundle. Even better, depending on where you live, you might even be able to stream the awards ceremony for free. Here’s a roundup:

Good luck and enjoy the show!
