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

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

The group is nominated in the World Music Album category along with artists such as Bombino, Fatoumata Diawara, Seun Kuti and Egypt 80.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar - who won a Pulitzer Prize for his album DAMN. but has yet to snare a Grammy for Album of the Year - earned eight nods while Canadian rapper Drake snagged seven. Pop superstar Ariana Grande called out show producer Ken Ehrlich after he claimed Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together". The Grande spat followed a report from the New York Times that Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino all declined to perform at this year's ceremony as well. "It was when my creativity [and] self-expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend".

But despite the issues, there are dozens of statues to hand out and gobs of performers slated to take the Grammys stage.

Citytv will go live at the 61st Grammys starting at 4PM PT / 7PM ET, available through an online live stream at Citytv.com/GRAMMYs and also on TV (check your local listings). Critics may carp about the Grammy Awards themselves going to bland, middle-of-the-road acts instead of trailblazers, but Grammy red carpet fashion is usually wilder and more fun to gawk at then the self-consciously chic finery stars sport to the Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmys and more.

Streaming Information: The Recording Academy and CBS have named Facebook as the exclusive social platform to stream the official "Grammys: Live From the Red Carpet" show.

The music business will be partying ahead of the show at celebrations including the pre-Grammy gala hosted by the Recording Academy and Clive Davis, the Family Tree Entertainment music managers pre-Grammy brunch and the Music Is Universal artist showcase hosted by Lucian Grainge. Singers Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry will collaborate to present a tribute to Dolly Parton.

Lamar is known for his attention-grabbing, often political Grammy performances, like his fiery 2016 rendition of his "To Pimp a Butterfly" tracks, so his absence is sure to be missed by many.

What to expect: One person who won't be in attendance of the show is Ariana Grande, who reportedly had a dispute with show producers over what she should perform.

Sunday's show will include tributes to Diana Ross, to mark her 75th birthday in March, and to Aretha Franklin, who died last August. H.E.R.is also up for Best New Artist against Chloe x Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though.
