Women top Grammys noms

Grammy Awards 2019 FAQ: How to live-stream the show, where to watch on TV

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m.

"It's our first time ever presenting an award, and also the Grammys so... yeah I stayed up all night", he added.

Pop royalty Gaga meanwhile won an award in the visual media group for her heart-pounding hit "Shallow" of the blockbuster film "A Star Is Born", and another for best pop solo performance for "Joanne".

"I've been able to find zen moments leading up to all this". "I'm in tears with honor and gratitude".

Beck was a double victor during the pre-telecast, taking home best alternative music album and best engineered album (non-classical) for "Colors".

Her six nominations are for Record of the Year ("The Joke"), Album of the Year (By the Way, I Forgive You), Song of the Year ("The Joke"), Best American Roots Performance ("The Joke"), Best American Roots Song ("The Joke") and Best Americana Album (By the Way, I Forgive You).

Actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is among those to have apparently turned down the opportunity to perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

"His voice was his vision and his music was his peace", his daughter Toni said while accepting the trophy along with her brother. The children of Miami's Lotus House also received toys from the music giant. "I feel like we are truly part of a celebration, bringing the light, bringing the energy and continuing to make the statement that music is such an important part of all of our lives", she said in a press preview on February 7, according to Rolling Stone. "To be embraced by this enduring and loving community has been the dance of a lifetime", she continued. "Thank you for my family", she said. We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night.

But industry drama was threatening the evening gals, with a number of superstars declining to take part in the glitzy concert portion at the Staples Center.

More news: No. 2 Duke shoots its way past No. 3 Virginia

Ariana Grande has said no thanks to the Grammy Awards.

At the age of 85, country star Willie Nelson won best traditional pop vocal album for My Way.

There was a tie for best rap performance, and Drake was surprisingly not one of the winners.

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

Women are hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them past year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night.

The brazen comment drew outrage and prompted the executive, Neil Portnow, to say he would resign when his contract expires this summer.

Others set to perform Sunday included Cardi B, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Diana Ross, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Little Big Town, Post Malone and Chloe x Halle. There will be awkward moments, but a planned tribute to Aretha Franklin, which will be performed by Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day, had better be one to remember. The glittering ceremony will be hosted by Alicia Keys at 8pm ET. We made a film about music.

"If you see somebody that's hurting, don't look away".
