A technical glitch left some unable to watch the Grammy Awards on Monday night.

Music lovers hoping to see Taylor Swift kickoff music's biggest night on their computers ran into some major problems when CBS' livestream failed to work.

CBS however said the incident only affected a few people and was quickly fixed.

'Some users experienced temporary difficulty accessing the live online feed of the Grammys. Our location services provider had a brief issue verifying user location. 

'That issue has since been resolved and all users are back online,' said a spokesperson for CBS Interactive.

Despite this, many were still complaining about getting on the livestream during the show.

'Not watching the Grammys cause I don't have cable and the @CBS livestream isn't working,' wrote one Twitter user.

Another angry viewer said; 'And now CBS shutdown the livestream that was on YouTube. So now there's zero ways to watch the Grammys.' 

Unauthorized streams that popped up seemed to quickly be shit down by CBS despite these ongoing problems.

It is a bit of a surprise considering how well CBS' livestream went during last week's Super Bowl.

The network reported soon after that they had a recordbreaking 3.96million unique users for the event.
