Watch the Full Billboard Grammys Pre-Show

Ahead of music’s biggest night, Billboard’s Kevan Kenney and Chelsea Briggs hosted a Grammys pre-show that streamed on Twitter. If you missed it, don’t worry -- you can watch it in full above.

The show, which first aired on Sunday, featured panelists including Vibe editor in chief Datwon Thomas and associate editor Shenequa Golding, Billboard associate editor Lyndsey Havens, deputy editor, digital Joe Lynch and charts manager Xander Zellner. Also taking part in the show were TV host/music correspondent Oliver Trevena and RuPaul’s Drag Race queen Peppermint, who served as a fashion correspondent.

Meanwhile, Billboard’s co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Vibe associate news editor Desire Thompson reported from the red carpet at Madison Square Garden (where the awards were held), interviewing Cardi B, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Ledisi, Run the Jewels, Portugal. The Man, Rick Ross, Thomas Rhett, Hailee Steinfeld, Little Big Town and many, many more artists.

Plus, there are discussion panels on subjects including the #MeToo movement, concert violence, and Latin music at the Grammys. Also, Doug the Pug (not very accurately, but very adorably) predicted who would be taking home golden gramophones.
