Ahead of the 2020 Grammy Awards, CBS News anchor Gayle King is sitting down with some of the biggest stars in music right now to talk about their road to this year’s awards show. The Gayle King Grammy Special airs Thursday, January 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, but here’s how to watch if you don’t have a cable subscription.

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber or you want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch all live and on-demand CBS content via the CBS All-Access Amazon Channel, which comes with a seven-day free trial:
Once you’re signed up for the Prime CBS Channel, you can then watch the show live or on-demand on your computer via the Amazon website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the Amazon Video app.
CBS (live in most markets) is one of 95-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which comes with a free seven-day trial:
Once signed up for FuboTV, you can watch the show live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV also comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which allows you to watch most new shows on-demand within three days of their conclusion, even if you don’t record them.
CBS (live in most markets) is included in Hulu With Live TV, which comes with 60-plus live TV channels and Hulu’s extensive on-demand library of TV shows and movies:
Once signed up for Hulu With Live TV, you can watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has most new episodes and specials available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
Like the Amazon Prime CBS channel, this is a good option if you simply want to watch CBS and not any other channels. This is ultimately the same as Amazon option, only you’ll watch on CBS’ digital platforms instead:
Once signed up for CBS All-Access, you can watch the show live or on-demand on your computer via the CBS website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the CBS app.

The Gayle King Grammy Special will feature Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, the Jonas Brothers and Lil Nas X in a star-studded hour of interviews where the artists will reveal never-before-seen sides of themselves to King.

In a press release announcing the special, Shelton and Stefani also revealed that they will be performing their duet “Nobody But You” live for the first time during the 2020 Grammy Awards.
“I can already tell you that’s going to be one of the greatest rushes I’m ever going to experience, being on stage with Gwen Stefani at the Grammys, doing our song together,” Shelton said. “The easiest thing in the world I’ve ever done is to sing any song with Gwen. And, you know, look in her eyes and just know we know what each other are thinking.”
“It doesn’t get bigger than the Grammys,” added Stefani in a preview of the special.

@BlakeShelton’s never‘s won a Grammy and Sunday could be the night! We sure hope so! And so does @GwenStefani who joined us for the conversation. See them both in our PRIMETIME #GRAMMYs special tomorrow on @CBStv 10/9c. Only 1 day and counting! But first how about a little lightning round with this happy couple.
Shelton is an eight-time Grammy nominee, including a 2020 nomination for “God’s Country” in the Best Country Solo Performance category. Stefani, meanwhile, boasts 18 Grammy nominations and three wins, though she doesn’t have any nominations in the 2020 awards.
The other interviews are no slouches in the nomination category either. Lizzo received the most nominations in 2020 with eight, followed by Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X with six each. The Jonas Brothers have one nomination this year.
In a preview for the Grammy special, King talks to Lizzo about body positivity, asks Lil Nas X how much experience he had riding a horse before his music video and live performances of “Old Town Road,” and Eilish reveals that she has wanted to be a performer since the time she was a little girl, complete with home video footage of her dancing and singing.
The Gayle King Grammy Special airs Thursday, January 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
