Grammy Awards 2019: When is red carpet coverage? Is it streaming?

10 February 2019

Even Grammy darling Taylor Swift, whose Reputation is only nominated for best pop vocal album, likely will miss the ceremony because she's in London filming Cats, the flawless icing on this big, dumb cake.

Music's biggest night is nearly here, as the 61st Annual Grammy Awards air live on CBS this Sunday. A few Indian-origin artists are also nominated for the awards this year.

The GRAMMYs seem to have an issue with performers this year, yesterday Ariana Grande pulled out of the show due to creative differences.

Brandi Carlile, the folk singer nominated for six Grammys including album, song and record of the year, looked to Monae and said: "Girl, I would vote you into presidency".

"As you go on that red carpet, as you take the stage, as you are with your teams and you're dealing with that anxiety and that pressure and you're feeling like you're falling into competition with your fellow women and sisters, know that that's not what this is about. I see you", Monae said.

The Recording Academy has made an effort to diversify its membership amid complaints that the Grammys are not an even playing field for minority and women artists.

Ironically, in their quest to preserve some fabled bastion of old, white credibility, the Grammys have alienated numerous artists who are redefining the future of popular music, critically and commercially.

Kendrick Lamar though winning all five awards in rap categories, lost the Album of the Year award to "Uptown Funk" crooner, Bruno Mars.

"I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken", she added.

"It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.

For a list of the complete nominations, visit the Grammys' site. "I'm especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year!"

The big name that is expected to not be at the 2019 Grammys is Taylor Swift.

Twitter has been abuzz with news of the public disagreement between Ariana Grande and Grammy producers.

The GRAMMYs have a stacked line up of performers including Cardi B, Travis Scott, and Post Malone, but could it have been even crazier?

Sunday's show will include tributes to Diana Ross, to mark her 75th birthday in March, and to Aretha Franklin, who died last August. "Grammy voters are less concerned with commercial success and more concerned with the work as a whole", she said.
