The 58th Grammy Awards kick off tonight at 8 pm Eastern, bringing the usual spate of over-the-top performances, rambling speeches, and award snubs and surprises to your TV screen. They also promise answers to some burning questions: Will leading nominee Kendrick Lamar clean up? Will the cast of Hamilton melt our collective brains with their performance? What will Kanye West do?!

Join culture editor Todd VanDerWerff, deputy culture editor Jen Trolio, culture writers Alex Abad-Santos and Caroline Framke, and copy chief Tanya Pai as we live-blog the ceremony and performances, discussing these questions and much more.
