That's in contrast to last year's ceremony, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the top award, Lorde, didn't get a chance to perform onstage.

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). Women also have a strong presence in those top categories, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai.

H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith are also up for best new artist.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake lead this year's nominations, with eight and seven respectively.

Ariana Grande, with two nominations in the pop field, pulled out of the show late last week after a dispute with producers over which songs she would perform.

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".

"Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you", the pop star wrote Sunday night before the show.

The Grammy Premiere Ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. PT, with host Shaggy leading the festivities, and presenters like Questlove handing out the first Grammy Awards.

Grande added that she had offered to perform three different songs, but that the process, which she wrote should be "about art and honesty", wound up feeling like a game: "that's not what music is to me", she concluded. A study released by the University of Southern California's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative days before the ceremony found that of the 899 individuals who had been nominated for the previous six shows, 90.7 percent were men.

On Sunday, 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys will emcee music's biggest night, while Cardi B, Camila Cabello, and Shawn Mendes take the stage.

"When they don't take home the big prize", he said, "the regard of the academy, and what the Grammys represent, continues to be less meaningful to the hip-hop community, which is sad".

Before this year's Grammys, Beck won five previous times, including his 2015 awards for Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
