Grammy Awards 2019: All the best red carpet style

Grammy Awards 2019: All the best red carpet style

Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Alicia Keys, oh my!

E!'s red carpet coverage, hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic, starts at 6 p.m.; CBS's special, hosted by Nancy O'Dell, Kevin Frazier, Keltie Knight and Eve, kicks off at 7 p.m.

But this year, Monae is looking forward to the show, where women are now leading in nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

Gaga is set to perform her hit single "Shallow" alongside Mark Ronson, with whom she collaborated on the song for her film A Star Is Born. "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".

The award was accepted by his daughter, Rashida Jones, who said: "When he first saw the film he said, 'I wish I could live forever - and I think he could be the first person to do that". Other performers include Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R., Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dan + Shay. Other big stars also declined to attend, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards. "I am such a misfit", Carlile said, speaking about the difficulties of coming out as a lesbian in her teen years and never attending school dances. "Music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys", Obama says as the five women end the opening in a embrace. She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken".

In a charming twist, U.S. president Jimmy Carter won his third Grammy in the Spoken World Album category for the audio version of his best-selling book "Faith: A Journey For All".

But industry drama was threatening the gala before it even began, with a number of superstars declining to take part in the show´s glitzy concert portion.

Ariana Grande also won her first Grammy in the same week that she publicly blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show.

Elder jazz statesman Wayne Shorter and his Quartet's Emanon won for best jazz instrumental album.

There was a tie for best rap performance, and Drake was surprisingly not one of the winners. "Thank you for my family at home, I love you", Gaga said as she held back tears.

When asked soon after the show about the lack of female winners, academy president Neil Portnow said women needed to "step up" - now-infamous words that instantly drew outrage, and which he said were taken out of context.

Hosted by 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys, this year's broadcast features performances by Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes and rapper Cardi B.

Songstress Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy victor, is set to host Sunday´s ceremony - the first woman to do so in 14 years.

She vowed this year's performances would be the "sickest" yet, with icons like Parton and disco diva Diana Ross also set to take the stage.

A performance honoring the legacy of the late "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin is also expected.

Women were strongly represented at this year's Grammys.

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