The entertainment world will be under the spotlight as music fans get ready to watch Grammys 2018 live streaming online and on TV on Sunday night. Many of the biggest stars in a variety of music genres will be out to celebrate those who have been nominated and will win awards at the latest Grammy Awards show. Among the top nominees are Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino, and SZA. With James Corden set to host and plenty of great performers lined up, it should be another exciting edition of the show. Here’s the latest Grammy Awards 2018 preview with odds for winners, start time, channel, and how to watch the Grammys 2018 show live streaming online.
Ahead of tonight’s 60th edition of the annual Grammy Awards, no musician garnered more nominations than hip-hop star Jay-Z. The rapper released a surprise album 4:44 in 2017 which received critical acclaim. That gave Jay-Z a total of eight nominations for tonight’s show, besting fellow hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar’s seven. Lamar also released a highly-praised album Damn last year, which will compete with Jay-Z in several categories. Also high up amongst nominees is Bruno Mars with six, as well as Khalid, NO I.D., SZA, and Childish Gambino. Each of these performers has five nominations for tonight’s ceremony.

The latest Grammy winner odds via Paddy Power currently show Kendrick Lamar as the overall favorite to win the “Album of the Year” award. Lamar’s DAMN is listed as the 4 to 7 favorite to defeat Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic (7/2) and Jay-Z’s 4:44 (4/1) for the Album of the Year. Childish Gambino’s “Awaken, My Love!” is the longshot at 10 to 1 with Lorde’s Melodrama just ahead of him at 6 to 1 odds.
In the “Best New Artist” category, Alessia Cara leads all nominees at 4 to 7 odds with SZA just behind her at 4 to 1 and Khali at 6 to 1. Julia Michaels is an 8 to 1 favorite while Lil Uzi Vert is the 10 to 1 longshot in the category. Elsewhere, the odds for “Song of the Year” favor 1-800-273-8255 by Logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, while the track Despacito by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber is a 13 to 8 contender in second place amongst the five nominees. Jay-Z’s 4:44 (5/1), Bruno Mars’ That’s What I Like (9/1), and Issues by Julia Michaels (12/1) round out the category.
