The deal will keep the GRAMMYs on CBS, its home since 1973, for 54 consecutive broadcasts. This sets a record for the longest continuous partnership between an awards show and broadcaster in television history (exceeding ABC’s long relationship with the Oscars).

In addition to the awards broadcast, the agreement includes the academy’s annual two-hour GRAMMY special, as well as additional programming opportunities.
