It’s an extremely easy way to watch a live stream of your local CBS channel on the Prime Video app–which is available on more devices than other streaming services–and it comes with a free 30-day trial (if you previously used your free trial when it was branded as CBS All Access, Paramount+ costs just 99 cents for the first month).

Watch the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards live at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on Sunday, March 14 on CBS.2021-03-07T18:28:59Z

Hosted by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, the 2021 Grammys honor music’s best and brightest across a variety of genres. Noah said he’s “thrilled” to be hosting this year’s broadcast.

“Despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the Grammys have refused to have me sing or be nominated for best pop album, I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event,” said Noah in a statement. “I think as a one-time Grammy nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award! (This is a metaphorical shoulder. I’m not trying to catch Corona). See you at the 63rd Grammys!”

“With a knack for keeping viewers engaged and entertained, Trevor is the perfect choice to lead us through what’s sure to be an incredible evening full of music, unforgettable moments, unity and inspiration,” said Harvey Mason Jr., Chair and Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “He is a dynamic host, comedian and personality, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the Grammy stage as host of Music’s Biggest Night for the first time.”

“Trevor’s comedy talents, engaging energy and unique perspective make him the perfect host for the Grammys,” said CBS Entertainment Group President and Chief Executive Officer George Cheeks. “At the same time, it’s very exciting to have one of our biggest ViacomCBS stars center stage for one of CBS’ marquee events. With Trevor hosting and The Late Late Show’s Ben Winston producing, it’s yet another example of our combined company’s power in music, entertainment and the biggest live events.”

The CBS press release continues:

In 2020, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah received six Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Variety Talk Series and Outstanding Writing for A Variety Series. Trevor originally joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2014 as a contributor. Trevor has written, produced, and starred in 11 comedy specials, including his most recent, Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia, which launched in November 2018 on Netflix.

In April 2018, Noah launched The Trevor Noah Foundation, a youth development initiative that empowers youth with the foundation for a better life: access to high-quality education. Noah’s vision is a world where an education enables youth to dream, see and build the impossible. Through a partnership with Microsoft, the foundation is able to provide under-resourced schools with the opportunity to use technology as a tool to enhance the learning experience, as well as increase digital literacy beyond the classroom.

The 2021 Grammy Awards air live Sunday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
