The 56th annual Grammy Awards takes place tonight. And if you can't get in front of a TV, you'll easily be able to follow on your smartphone. Any number of websites track the winners, of course, but there's an official Grammys app that brings you videos, photos and news, long before the TV coverage kicks in.

The app itself isn't all that great, but it's workable. (If it's that bad, just use the website — it appears to be the same content.) And try to ignore the malformed ad that pops up at the begging. Also look out for any Justin Bieber sightings. It's the Grammys, where the recording industry at least attempts to honor good music, so chances are slim we'll see public enemy No. 1. But you can't be too careful.

Download the app at the link above. The show kicks off at 8 p.m. EST, 5 p.m. PST.
