Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Childish Gambino reportedly turned down the Grammys

Kendrick Lamar Drake and Childish Gambino reportedly declined to perform Sunday night

Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke".

Lamar leads this year with eight nominations, followed by Drake who has seven. The organization awards approximately 70 winners during the show's Premiere Ceremony at 1 p.m., which features categories such as producer of the year, best metal performance, best rap performance and best country song.

Logic dictates that when you repeatedly shut out the most qualified artists in the biggest genre in the United States, eventually those artists will stop appearing on your show.

"What I plan to do is let every woman who is nominated, who is here this weekend, know that from the red carpet to the stage, win or lose, I have your back". Women artistes are leading the nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

"There's great respect that is deserved to women and you will see that live embodied on Sunday".

Grammy organizers this year expanded the top four categories - album, record, song of the year, and best new artist - to eight nominees from five in a bid to diversify the contest.

"I don't think you can say anyone is a front-runner", said Melinda Newman, West Coast editor of Billboard magazine.

It's a far stretch from last year's Grammys, where Lorde was the only women nominated for album of the year and only two women won prizes during the live telecast.

"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.

"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported".

"All the women who are nominated, all the women who are going, all the women who work so hard, this event was to acknowledge you".

Streaming Information: The Recording Academy and CBS have named Facebook as the exclusive social platform to stream the official "Grammys: Live From the Red Carpet" show. A representative for the Grammys didn't return an email seeking clarification about the tribute.

Grammy winners Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and past Grammy nominee Andra Day will honor the legendary Aretha Franklin. Other artists announced to perform on the broadcast include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Dan + Shay, Post Malone with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Diana Ross, J Balvin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, H.E.R., Miley Cyrus, Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Little Big Town and Ricky Martin.

Twitter has been abuzz with news of the public disagreement between Ariana Grande and Grammy producers. "Just the fact that this album has connected in such a way beyond my wildest dreams is just really cool".
