How long does the 2023 Grammy Awards last?

The 2023 Grammy Awards are just around the corner, and there's a lot to look forward to at this year's ceremony. For starters, Beyoncé is the most-nominated artist, with nine total nominations for her work in "Renaissance" — and fans are holding out hope that she'll be able to perform at the February 5 ceremony. It just so happens to be the eve of her world tour pre-sale. Regardless, the lineup of musicians confirmed to take the stage is impressive in its own right: Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Steve Lacy are just a few of the names on the list.

Of course, with so much star power on the schedule, it's safe to say the show will continue into the evening. Whether you're picking up snacks for a watch party, planning a nighttime activity, or just trying to stave off the horrors of Sunday for as long as possible, now is the time to plan. So, how long will the 2023 Grammy Awards last?

The Recording Academy, which runs the Grammys, has confirmed that this year's ceremony will take place from 8pm to 11:30pm ET, so you'll want to set aside at least three and a half hours for the show. However, it's definitely not unheard of for award shows to drag on — so don't plan on quitting after three and a half hours, especially if there are any last-minute surprises that might get people talking.
