The 2019 Grammy Awards

The 2019 Grammy Awards

Ariana Grande - who had a public falling out with the night's executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, earlier this week over her choice of song, a year after Lorde was denied the opportunity to perform during the telecast - won best pop vocal album for Sweetener. I sang that version in one take, & poured my entire life & soul into it. Thank you so much for this gift I am completely shocked.

This year, five of the eight Album of the Year nominations went to female artists: Cardi B, Carlile, Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and Musgraves.

Cardi B, who will perform later on Sunday, could break that trend and take home not only her first ever Grammy but potentially become the first rapper since 2004 to win the coveted album of the year award for her Invasion Of Privacy. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and scored one nomination, also won't be at the show. "This is a business where sometimes, you know, it's up to a bunch of people who might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from NY or anybody else or a brother from Houston.my brother Travis [Scott]".

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated last year, but this year she is looking forward to the show, where women are now leading in nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

Tori Kelly, who debuted on the music scene as a pop singer, won two awards for her first gospel album.

This year's nominees mark a departure from the 2018 Grammys, where Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow was criticized when he said women need to "step up" when asked about the lack of women in the top categories.

Folk singer Brandi Carlile, 37, was also among the early winners, taking two Grammys for her Americana music single "The Joke" and another for her album "By the Way, I Forgive You". "As much as it is about me, it's not just about me", said Monae, who gave a powerful speech a year ago ahead of Kesha's emotional and striking performance celebrating sisterhood and women's rights.

As for other ways to watch the Grammys, you can also tune into American network CBS. In addition to other general field categories, Glover, Drake and Lamar all earned record of the year nominations for This Is America, God's Plan and All the Stars, respectively.

"When they don't take home the big prize", he said, "the regard of the academy, and what the Grammys represent, continues to be less meaningful to the hip-hop community, which is sad".

Fifteen-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys will be the first woman to host the ceremony in over a decade.

The night will also honour the careers of legendary artists Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton.
