The GRAMMY Awards is the quintessential annual award show that celebrates musicians, producers, composers and others within the global music industry for their accomplishments and talents of the past year. The idea for The GRAMMY Awards stemmed from the creation of the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame in the 1950’s. Those involved in the Hollywood Walk of Fame project found that leaders in the music industry would be unable to obtain a star. It was decided that something else would be needed to honor them. With inspiration from the already established Emmys and Oscars, The GRAMMY Awards was created, fit with a name inspired by the invention that allowed the general public to listen to recorded music for the first time: the gramophone. Today, receiving a GRAMMY is regarded as one of the highest honors and achievements in a musician’s career. 

The 65th GRAMMY Awards will air on Sunday, February 5 on CBS and Paramount+ at 8p.m. ET/5p.m. PST. It will be streamed live from Arena in Los Angeles, California.
