Grammy Awards 2019 FAQ

Seating placards appear for Grammy nominees Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga for the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019, in Los Angeles. This week Ariana Grande blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show.

Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke". She said: "I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I'm going to bring that vibe and energy".

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

Drake and Kendrick Lamar have the most nominations this year and both artists could win a Grammy for album of the year, record of the year, or both!

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

The Grammys are a beast of an award show.

Monae hosted the Friday brunch alongside Instagram to celebrate her Grammy nominations, including album of the year for her groundbreaking release, "Dirty Computer". Some prominent figures whom the Grammys have "alienated", per The Times, include Drake, Frank Ocean, Kanye West and Jay-Z, who called out the 2018 Grammys specifically on a track from Everything Is Love, his joint album with wife Beyonce.

Ehrlich, in The Times interview, acknowledged that the Grammys "continue to have a problem in the hip-hop world". A representative for the Grammys didn't return an email seeking clarification about the tribute. Head up to the gallery above to see all the glamorous celebrity arrivals at this year's Grammys! Best new artist Alessia Cara was the only woman to receive her own award during the telecast, and Lorde, the sole woman to earn an album of the year nomination, was not invited to perform her own music.

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. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

This year's show exhibits some efforts to combat these diversity issues - the academy, which The Times reported has invited 900 new members to vote, expanded major categories from five to eight nominees.

If a three and a half hour award ceremony isn't enough for you, don't worry as Grammy.com has you covered with the Premiere Ceremony starting at 12.30pm PT (3.30pm PT, 8.30pm GMT) and Red Carpet coverage at 2pm PT (5pm ET, 10pm GMT).

We couldn't be more excited to see what the 15-time Grammy victor does with this year's show - and we know she's pretty psyched about it too!
