Grammy Awards 2019 FAQ

How to Watch the 2019 Grammy Awards in Canada Online and on TV

The superstar continued her red carpet reign Sunday at the 2019 Grammy Awards, where she won three gramophone statues - one for best pop solo performance for her song "Joanne" and two other for her chart-topping rock ballad Shallow from the critically acclaimed film A Star Is Born. Instead, it was 100 percent Gaga - and singer Gaga, not actress Gaga - up on that stage, back to her old tricks of belting out lyrics amid leg kicks, insane faces and whipping her hair back and forth.

Her first Grammy win came in the category of Best Song Written for Visual Media for her duet with Bradley Cooper, "Shallow".

Diana Ross, who used her performance to mark her 75th birthday, also got the crowd up with hands in the air. Gaga tweeted, "I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammys to show them our love as well".

Said Michelle Obama, interrupted frequently by applause, "From the Motown Records I wore out on the South Side to the "who run the world" songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story ..."

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated last year, but this year she is looking forward to the show, where women are now leading in nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

Women have a strong presence in the top categories.

Musgraves, also nominated for best country album, song and performance, said she's been trying to relax this week ahead of the show. It was also honored at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards and the Satellite Awards.

Genre-bending experimental artist Beck scored the prize for Best Alternative Music Album. You've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you are a hero in your hometown.

Heading into music's biggest night, rap artists Kendrick Lamar and Drake topped the nominations, with eight and seven, respectively. 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.

This year's first performance was a Latin music-powered performance by Camila Cabello, which featured J Balvin, Ricky Martin, and Arturo Sandoval.

Hosted by 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys, this year's broadcast features performances by Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes and rapper Cardi B. There will be awkward moments, but a planned tribute to Aretha Franklin, which will be performed by Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day, had better be one to remember.
