62nd Grammy Awards to air in India on Vh1 on January 27

Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and many more global music icons will vie for the golden gramophone at the awards

The 62nd Grammy Awards will air on Monday, January 27 at 7:30am, on music channel Vh1 India from Viacom18. Recording Academy’s award ceremony will be held at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, hosted by 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys. The awards honour music and musicians that broke records, made their mark and revolutionised the industry.

Repeat telecasts will be at 2pm and 9pm, exclusively on Vh1 India.


“For the last 15 years, Vh1 India has continued to showcase and endorse music and artists that defy conventions, records and boundaries. Every musician aspires to win a Grammy, which is considered as the greatest honour and distinction in the world of music; and each year the awards only get bigger, grander and more competitive. In one of those rare instances where three artists are nominated in ‘Best New Artist’ as well as ‘Best Album’ category, this is definitely the year for young and diverse pop stars. Yet again this year, women are powering the Grammy nominations,” said Hashim Dsouza, Head of Programming, English Entertainment, Viacom18.

Dsouza added, “While Ariana Grande, Post Malone and Lizzo have been incredible this year, newcomer Billie Eilish defines the new era of pop music with the right balance of edge and credibility which perfectly fits the criteria for winning the awards of ‘Record of the year’ and ‘Best New Artist’. Complementing the magical ceremony will be performances by a line-up of chart-topping artists, including Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers, Aerosmith, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande and many more.”


The category ‘Record of the Year’ will see Hey, Ma (Bon Iver), Bad Guy (Billie Eilish), 7 Rings (Ariana Grande), Hard Place (H.E.R.), Talk (Khalid), Old Town Road (Lil Nas X ft Billy Ray Cyrus), Truth Hurts (Lizzo) and Sunflower (Post Malone & Swae Lee) contend for the top prize.

‘Song of the Year’ category will witness a stiff competition as Always Remember Us This Way (Lady Gaga), Bad Guy (Billie Eilish), Bring My Flowers Now (Tanya Tucker), Hard Place (H.E.R.), Lover (Taylor Swift), Norman F***ing Rockwell (Lana Del Rey), Someone You Loved (Lewis Capaldi) and Truth Hurts (Lizzo) go head-to-head.
