UPDATE: Perhaps it's a sign that we have to give up our nostalgic attachment to live-blogging, but technical difficulties and a totally broken live-blog have sent Stephen and me back to Twitter, where we — at @nprmonkeysee and @idislikestephen — will be tweeting at the hashtag #NPRGrammys. Thanks for your patience.

Beyonce, Sam Smith, and Pharrell Williams top the 57th Grammy Awards with six nominations each. But the telecast spends very little airtime on the awards, showcasing only a handful of the 83 categories. The ceremony is typically jam-packed with performances, and this year is no different. A number of artists are scheduled to perform, including Rihanna with Paul McCartney and Kanye West, Sam Smith with Mary J. Blige, and Tony Bennett with Lady Gaga.

It's become an annual tradition here at Monkey See for our own Linda Holmes and NPR Music's Stephen Thompson to live blog the ceremony. They'll be here at 7:45pm EST, warming up for the 8pm show.

We'll update this page periodically highlighting the some of night's big winners. You can find a complete list of nominees, and the winners so far here.
