Global announces this weekend's Grammy coverage

Grammy2013If you’re not sick of awards season by now then Global has another of the major annual ceremonies this weekend for you to enjoy.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards take place in LA this Sunday (February 10) and Global has coverage beginning at 7pm ET/PT with a one-hour live ET Canada special.

“History shows that nothing is off-limits at the Grammys. Gather music’s hottest acts in one room, and the result is explosive performances, candid celebrity interactions, and head turning style,” said Barb Williams, SVP, Content, Shaw Media.

“Plus, viewers get an all-access pass to the red carpet with ET Canada’s live pre-show. From the first arrival to the final speech, Global is the one-stop destination for the Grammys.”

The star-studded night kicks off in style at 7pm ET/PT with the one-hour live special The Grammy Awards: ET Canada Live (#ETCGRAMMYs). With 10 cameras covering every inch of the carpet, and ET Canada personalities Rick Campanelli (@RCampanelliETC), Roz Weston (@RozWeston), and Natasha Gargiulo (@NatashaGargiulo) catching the stars before they enter the Staples Center, viewers at home will get an unparalleled and unrestricted look at their favourite stars.

With the return of ET Canada’s Twitter tracker, interactive polls and ‘Shoe Cam,’ and the debut of the Grammy Fashion Face-off – which allows fans to vote for their favourite looks online with results on-screen moments later – fans too can raise their voices and see their names in lights! Plus, ET Canada is partnering with GetGlue to allow viewers to “check-in” to the live pre-show. For further info, visit

The Grammy action doesn’t stop there. Global will be giving viewers an intimate look at the making of last year’s show with “Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family” airing Saturday, February 9 – 9pm ET/PT.
