How to Watch the 2019 Grammys Online

Meanwhile, Keys had talked about the hosting duties last month.

While last year's show was held in NY - for the first time since 2003 - the 61st Grammys are back in Los Angeles. This marks yet another rough year for the Grammys. Despite being heavily advertised as part of the show, Grande is not performing nor even attending the Sunday ceremony, after she felt producers "insulted" her by asserting too much control over her song choices. Grande was quick to refute this account on Twitter, her chosen medium for handling such matters. "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.

"I don't think you can say anyone is a front-runner", said Melinda Newman, West Coast editor of Billboard magazine. She ended the tweet with her trademark black heart emoji.

Carlile told the AP she stands "behind Ariana Grande's decision to stand up for herself and her art".

The glittering ceremony will be hosted by Alicia Keys at 8pm ET.

The singer, who sent the tweets just hours before the highly anticipated release of her album Thank U, Next, is up for two awards this year: best pop solo performance for God Is a Woman, and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.

Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke". Ehrlich told The New York Times in an article also published on Thursday that the rappers had also declined his invitations to perform at the show.

"This is going to be a special Grammys". In 1989, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff boycotted the show after they learned that the presentation of the best rap performance award wouldn't be televised, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

More snow likely for storm-buried Pacific Northwest

Unfortunately for United Kingdom music fans, there will be no live broadcast of the Grammy Awards this year.

Lady Gaga arrives for the 60th Grammy Awards on 28 January 2018, in NY.

The Grammys have also struggled with gender inequality, an issue that came to its head a year ago.

Monae was also joined by songwriter Linda Perry, the first women nominated for non-classical producer of the year in 15 years and rapper-singer Tierra Whack, who scored a nomination for best music video for her "Mumbo Jumbo".

When asked about the lack of women in the top categories at the 2018 Grammys, Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said women need to "step up".

To help combat the Grammys' much-discussed diversity problem, the Recording Academy expanded the major categories to eight nominees each - so now that the field is wider than ever, expect some upsets.

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated at last year's Grammy Awards, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the night's top award, Lorde, didn't get a chance to perform onstage.

Live red carpet coverage is set to kick off at 5 p.m. EST, and will stream on the Grammy Awards website.
