Before this year, Carlile's only other nomination as an artist came in 2016 when her previous record, "The Firewatcher's Daughter", was up for best Americana album.

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m.

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.

Six of the best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

It's always something of a coup when a genre album or single makes an appearance in the big four categories and Carlile's competition will be steep.

LIVE from the GRAMMYs red carpet in Los Angeles, host Tracy Moore chats with the night's biggest artists and nominees while music correspondent Devo Brown and fashion correspondent Lauren Howe break down the night's hottest tracks and looks.

If you want to watch the celebrities walk the red carpet, tune in early to watch the live streaming on the official Grammy Awards website, Grammy.com. As far as performers go, fans of Ariana Grande might be disappointed to learn that she dropped out of the ceremony.

This year's nominees mark a departure from the 2018 Grammys, where Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow was criticized when he said women need to "step up" when asked about the lack of women in the top categories.

Instead, Jackson is advising that users move to a more "modern browser " that is up to date with current web standards. In the United Kingdom for instance, 5.5% of consumers still have Internet Explorer as their main browser.

Ariana Grande has said no thanks to the Grammy Awards.

Actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is among those to have apparently turned down the opportunity to perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though. Weeks later, the academy announced that it had hired Tina Tchen, a lawyer and Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, to head a new task force on inclusion and diversity. "I am such a misfit", she said.

"I've got nothing to say, I'm speechless", she said.

Grande is nominated for two awards and could miss the chance to give a speech onstage if she wins. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and one scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

The ceremony starts at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and will air on CBS.

Women were strongly represented at this year's Grammys.

Gaga, now an eight-time Grammy victor, won best pop solo performance for "Joanne", while her hit "Shallow" was named best song written for visual media. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
