Before we start looking ahead to tonight, let's take a look back at the first debate.
The first ten candidates battled it out over immigration, healthcare, gun control and foreign policy. Here are four of the key takeaways from the first debate:
The question on everyone's lips as the candidates hugged, shook hands and left the stage was of course: who won?
Elizabeth Warren - who had been the poll frontrunner in the buildup to the debate - gave a strong showing, outlining her proposed structural policy. She also got a lot of air time in the first half of the debate.
But it was Cory Booker who spoke for the longest amount of time, getting a strong audience reaction on several occasions.
Lesser-known candidate Julian Castro also had a good night, frequently focusing on immigration.

Here's what Democrat voters on the ground in Miami had to say about yesterday's debate:
Although generally a fairly uncontentious night, candidate Tulsi Gabbard caused controversy with her comments about 9/11.
When asked about the gender wage gap, she pivoted to her military service - something she did frequently throughout the night - and shared a story about how she enrolled in the army after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The highlight of any political debate has to be the memes, and the internet did not disappoint on this occasion. You can see some of the best ones courtesy of indy100.com:
Tonight's debate will kick off at 9pm EST (sorry Brits, that's 2am UK Friday) on NBC.
The rules remain the same, with candidates having one minute to respond to direct questions and 30 seconds for follow-ups. Although the discussion dives in head first with no opening statements, they are given a short amount of time for individual closing statements.
As expected, Donald Trump waded in several times before, during and after the first debate. The most bizarre of his tweets was a video mocking the debate just before he landed in Japan.
