Stick right here as we live blog the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, including all of the winners (starting at noon for the pre-telecast winners, on through to Album of the Year and Best New Artist), the best performances (from Cardi B to Lady Gaga) and all of the memorable moments from host Alicia Keys and so many A-list presenters: BTS!

On Sunday, 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys will emcee music's biggest night, while Cardi B, Camila Cabello, and Shawn Mendes take the stage. All three rappers are nominated for several of the evening's biggest awards, though it's unclear whether they'll even attend the show.

We earlier reported that pop sensation, Ariana Grande will not be attending or performing at the 2019 Grammy awards slated to hold on February 10 in Los Angeles. Gambino also received a number of nominations, including Song of the Year for his work on "This Is America".

"I don't think you can say anyone is a front-runner", said Melinda Newman, West Coast editor of Billboard magazine. After last year's testosterone-filled broadcast (and Recording Academy Chief Executive Niel Portnow's asinine suggestion that women need to "step up" in order to win more awards), the Academy recruited 900 new voters, expanded its major categories from five nominees to eight, and created a task force to identify unconscious biases that may affect the Grammys' voting process. "This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future".

Lamar leads this year with eight nominations, followed by Drake who has seven. "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", Grande tweeted following an Associated Press interview where Erhlich said that she "felt it was too late for her to pull something together". She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken". "I'm especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year!"

A live stream of the show is also available to CBS All Access subscribers.

Monae was also joined by songwriter Linda Perry, the first women nominated for non-classical producer of the year in 15 years and rapper-singer Tierra Whack, who scored a nomination for best music video for her "Mumbo Jumbo". Other performers include Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R., Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dan + Shay.

Tributes to Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton are also planned, alongside a Diana Ross performance in honour of her 75th birthday and her musical achievements.
