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. H.E.R.is also one of six women nominated for best new artist (out of eight total), along with Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

Artists scheduled to perform include Diana Ross, Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Post Malone and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Lady Gaga scooped up five nominations including for both Record and Song of the Year for her heart-pounding hit Shallow, which she performed in the film A Star Is Born with co-star Bradley Cooper. Emily Lazar, one of the engineers who worked on the album and won alongside Beck, said onstage that she was the first female mastering engineer to win in the latter category.

"This is live television and things happen up until the minute the shows starts", said Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, which puts on the Grammy Awards. "I see you", Monae said. As far as performers go, fans of Ariana Grande might be disappointed to learn that she dropped out of the ceremony. "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more".

Women are also hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them a year ago to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night.

"And I feel like it's a time in this country when women need to support each other and their decisions". Other big stars also declined to attend, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards. 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.

Drama has also 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 honor the legendary record label, which launched the careers of the Jackson 5, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and more.

"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".

Late night host James Corden, the host of the 2017 and 2018 Grammys, will be getting a rest this year, as 15-time Grammy Award victor Alicia Keys will be hosting.
