In related new, the Grammy Awards will be aired live in Pacific and Mountain time zones for the first time. Stations that take part in the live broadcast will air the award show from 5 until 8:30 p.m. PST, and 6 p.m.-9:30 p.m. MST. This brings the Grammy Awards up to speed with other major award shows that broadcast live across the country, including the Oscars and the Golden Globes.

“We’ve discussed this with CBS for years, but a variety of factors came together this year, and we collectively agreed that we had the perfect opportunity to try a new model and see how viewers respond,” said the Recording Academy and Grammy Foundation president Neil Portnow. “I’m very pleased to share that, for the first time, West Coast TV viewers will be able to watch the Grammy Awards live.”
