Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be a Grammy Award? Okay, probably not. But now that you're thinking about it, kind of enticing, right? You get to spend music's biggest night on stage and get cradled and caressed by some of the year's most talented artists.

Well, you'll get the chance to live the life of a Grammy statuette come Monday, Feb. 15 (minus the caressing part).

The Grammys announced today (Feb. 10) the debut of GrammyCam at the 2016 ceremony. A camera, placed at the base of the Grammy Award trophy, will broadcast live footage during the telecast and premiere ceremony as winners receive their Grammys.

GrammyCam is part of Grammy Live, which CBS and the Recording Academy are launching this year. The experience will begin Monday at 3 p.m. ET on,, the Grammy Live app and the CBS App, and run throughout the ceremony.

In addition to the GrammyCam, the Grammy Live experience will feature behind-the-scenes footage (you'll get to watch backstage portrait sessions with photographer Danny Clinch) and red carpet coverage hosted by Dulce Candy and Quddus, with Tyler Oakley and Ted Stryker serving as special correspondents.
