Gaga wins Grammy for ‘Shallow’; Hugh Jackman wins 1st Grammy”

Details: As we'll hear a couple of times, this is "music's biggest night".

For the second consecutive year, black hip-hop artists are leading the pack - but observers are still wondering if nominations success can translate into big wins.

BTS and their creative team being acknowledged by the Recording Academy for their visuals should come as no surprise to their dedicated fans; the group's meticulously plotted artistic narratives and imagery are often intertwined with the deeper meanings in their music.

Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga and Kacey Musgraves won multiple Grammys in the show's pre-telecast Sunday, a year after women were nearly muted at the 2018 awards show.

"The performance is based off of my grandma's childhood, and I have my family in the performance", she said on the red carpet.

Grande, who pulled out of a planned performance at the ceremony, received best pop album for Sweetener - her first ever Grammy Award. This week Ariana Grande blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show.

The pair won for "Shallow", their song from A Star Is Born.

"His voice was his vision and his music was his peace", his daughter Toni said while accepting the trophy along with her brother. Other big stars also won't be in attendance, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards. "Thank you so much", Grande tweeted.

Drake, Lamar and Childish Gambino - the rap alter-ego of actor Donald Glover - have also all turned down performance offers, and it was not clear if they would even attend.

Keys told CBS news this year´s greater representation from women was "far overdue". "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves". Regardless, the performers are Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, Dolly Parton, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R., Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug, Chloe x Halle, Mark Ronson and Dan + Shay. "I see you", Monae said.

This year's show exhibits some efforts to combat these diversity issues - the academy, which The Times reported has invited 900 new members to vote, expanded major categories from five to eight nominees. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
