Kiwi fans will have to wait until the evening until they can watch NZ singer Lorde perform at the Grammys - and possibly pick up some of the awards.

TVNZ has the free-to-air broadcast rights for the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, January 26 (Monday morning NZ time) in Los Angeles.

TVNZ did not have the online streaming rights, but would receive footage of the show as it was taking place and would play it at prime time on Monday night, a spokeswoman said.

"We feel we've done well to secure the show as it's expensive and not so easy to acquire," she said.

"As soon as we heard Lorde was nominated we went for it."

The Grammys go live during the day in New Zealand, and showing the footage in prime time meant it was available to the widest audience, she said.

Lorde is performing at the Grammys and is also nominated for four awards - song of the year and best pop solo performance for her chart-topper Royals; and record of the year and best pop vocal album for her album Pure Heroine.
