Grammys 2019: Drake's Speech Stirs Social Media After Broadcast Cuts Him Off

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

The stars glammed up in the name of the 2019 Grammy Awards, and we were more than happy to bear witness to their show-stopping looks.

Details: Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic take over hosting duties, and ask the arriving stars what will no doubt be deep, probing questions.

"If you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown, if there's people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending hard earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don't need this right here", an apparent nod to his Grammy. "If you're hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and tell somebody", Lady Gaga said during her acceptance speech. "This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future".

The music world will hit the red carpet on Sunday for the Grammys, with a wider selection of nominees - led by hip-hop royalty and a bevy of talented women - up for the top prizes.

An absent Ariana Grande, who pulled out of the show last week after a dispute with producers, won her first Grammy, best pop vocal album for "Sweetener".

"I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", she tweeted.

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.

Grande is nominated for two awards and could miss the chance of giving a speech onstage if she wins.

Cuban-born Camila Cabello kicked off the televised show with a dance heavy performance of her hit single "Havana" with Latin artists J Balvin, Ricky Martin and Young Thug. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

Drama has surrounded the Grammys around its Motown Records tribute: Some people complained when a promo aired on CBS showing Jennifer Lopez as the act set to honour the legendary record label, which launched the careers of the Jackson 5, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and more.

The soundtrack was produced by Lamar and includes performances by Lamar, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, 2 Chainz and more.

Musgraves, also nominated for best country album, song and performance, said she's been trying to relax this week ahead of the show. "Thank you so much", Grande tweeted.
