  • BTS Strike a Pose on the Red Carpet at Grammys 2019

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. Other performers include Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R., Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dan + Shay. A little later, Gaga was shocked again when her single "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?") won for Best Pop Solo Performance, for which she said she was absolutely shocked. "I am such a misfit", she said.

The 37-year-old musician is the most-nominated female artist at this year's awards, earning six nominations. "Thank you for my family", she said.

The biggest stars in music have descended on Hollywood for the 61st annual Grammy Awards. The song and album is also up for record of the year and album of the year, respectively.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though.

Keys told CBS news this year´s greater representation from women was "far overdue".

H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith are also up for best new artist. Weeks later, the academy announced that it had hired Tina Tchen, a lawyer and Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, to head a new task force on inclusion and diversity.

The Raazi star, however, reacted on the same recently and said that she is ready to apologise to her personally. I applaud her courage and performances.


But, if and when you hear her name tonight, in the context of nominees or as the victor, now you know a little more about who she is.

Grande added that she had offered to perform three different songs, but that the process, which she wrote should be "about art and honesty", wound up feeling like a game: "that's not what music is to me", she concluded. Other big stars also declined to attend, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards.

Drama has surrounded the Grammys around its Motown Records tribute: Some people complained when a promo aired on CBS showing Jennifer Lopez as the act set to honour the legendary record label, which launched the careers of the Jackson 5, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and more.

"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".

Songstress Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy victor, is set to host Sunday´s ceremony - the first woman to do so in 14 years. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
