Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino will not take the stage at Sunday's Grammys, according to The New York Times. Other big stars also won't be in attendance, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards. Critics may carp about the Grammy Awards themselves going to bland, middle-of-the-road acts instead of trailblazers, but Grammy red carpet fashion is usually wilder and more fun to gawk at then the self-consciously chic finery stars sport to the Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmys and more.

LIVE from the GRAMMYs red carpet in Los Angeles, host Tracy Moore chats with the night's biggest artists and nominees while music correspondent Devo Brown and fashion correspondent Lauren Howe break down the night's hottest tracks and looks.
"Know that I support you - win or lose", Monae said.

"It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued. Pop superstar Ariana Grande called out show producer Ken Ehrlich after he claimed Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together".

Alicia Keys (The Voice), who is a 15-time victor and 29-time nominee, takes over as host for the 2019 Grammys show at STAPLES Center.

The 61st Grammy Awards will be broadcast from The Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California. Whether you watch the Grammys online or on CBS, it'll be worth talking about.

The performances: The Grammys will feature a bevy of musical performances, including an opening number featuring Camila Cabello alongside Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug and J Balvin. The article points out the hip-hop community's lack of representation and acknowledgement in the major song and album categories throughout the years.

Their absence is seen as a snub by the three rappers for an awards show that has shut hip-hop artists out of its top prizes for a decade, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States.

Meanwhile, Andra Day, Yolanda Adams and Fantasia will join forces for an Aretha Franklin tribute performance, and Diana Ross will celebrate herself with a special 75th birthday performance. Additionally, current nominee Dua Lipa will perform with Grammy victor St. Vincent.
