Drake, Kendrick Lamar And Childish Gambino Decline Grammy Performance

Alicia Keys and James Corden

Alicia Keys will be hosting the 61st Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles this year.

St. Vincent is nominated for Best Rock Song for "Masseduction" and Best Alternative Music Album Masseduction.

After backlash over the lack of female nominees last year, 2019 sees mostly young women in the best new artist category and five women competing with three men for album of the year.

"I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken", she added.

The actual pre-party will include a star-studded roster of performances from some of the biggest names in music. "It's going UP on February 10!" Although her musical career began four years ago, Cara had a string of hit songs off of "Know-It-All" that stretched well into 2017. She has won 15 Grammys in her career. Keys has promised to craft a show that champions an "amazing energy" and celebration. "As an artist who speaks to the power of music for good, a role model, and a spokesperson for change, we are thrilled to have her on board for what's sure to be an unforgettable Grammy Awards".

While Jenny from the block is a talented artist in her own right, she doesn't accurately represent Motown.
