The live stream will be viewable on desktop or the CBS mobile app for All Access subscribers. A one-week free trial is being offered for the $5.99-per-month service, which also allows people to watch other live events and CBS shows on demand.
All Access will also offer Grammy Live, a separate second-screen experience featuring backstage reports and commentary from the broadcast and red carpet.

This year, the five Grammy nominees for Album of the Year — the most prestigious award of the evening — are: Beyonce, "Beyonce"; Sam Smith, "In The Lonely Hour"; Pharrell, "Girl"; Ed Sheeran, "X" and Beck, "Morning Phase."

Rolling Stone magazine compared the similarities and differences among the five nominated singles up for Record of the Year by plotting them by nine sets of data, including social media dominance, lyrical content, speed, duration, accomplishments and more.
