Gaga wins Grammy for ‘Shallow’, Hugh Jackman wins first Grammy

Later tonight, Brandi Carlile is set to perform at the 61st Grammy Awards show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where the hometown hero is up for three of the most prestigious awards.

Beck was a double victor during the pre-telecast, taking home best alternative music album and best engineered album (non-classical) for "Colors". "I have to say, this is a golden age of composing", Kernis said, shouting out his peers in his acceptance speech.

As for other ways to watch the Grammys, you can also tune into American network CBS.

Live red carpet coverage is set to kick off at 5 p.m. EST, and will stream on the Grammy Awards website.

Women were strongly represented at this year's Grammys.

At a pre-Grammy brunch honoring Janelle Monae, a few hundred music industry players and performers packed tightly in a room to hear the singer speak passionately about women being the backbone of the music industry and dominating in nominations at Sunday's show.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake are the two top nominated artists (Lamar leads Drake with eight noms to seven).

UEFA President Sets Out Vision for European Football
He immediately promised a dramatic overhaul of European club competitions. Ceferin was elected as UEFA's 7th president in September 2016.

The Grammys' tense relationship with the hip-hop community goes back decades.

"Yes, we have so much more work to do, but this is a moment to be celebrated". "I relax more ... when I know that I am supported by other women ... and I feel like I can do anything".

Monae's "Dirty Computer" is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show.

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".

Women also have a strong presence in song and record of the year, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai. The event also highlighted her organization Fem the Future, which empowers women in music to take on roles as engineers, producers, music video directors and more.

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. This marks yet another rough year for the Grammys. This week Ariana Grande blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show. She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken". "I came out of the closet at 15 years old when I was in high school, and I can assure you that I was never invited to any parties and never got to attend a dance". "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.
