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

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

Gaga's hit song Shallow from the movie A Star Is Born took the Grammy for best song written for visual media, while her song Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Going) won for pop solo performance. She shares the win with her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

Gaga was already a victor before her performance, taking home three awards for Song Written for Visual Media and Best Pop/Duo Performance for "Shallow", and Best Pop Solo Performance with "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?)". Black Panther won an early Grammy Award for best score soundtrack for visual media in advance of Sunday night's awards ceremony.

Best new artist Alessia Cara was the only woman to receive her own award during the telecast, and Lorde, the sole woman to earn an album of the year nomination, was not invited to perform her own music.

Pop mega-star Ariana Grande - who dropped her highly anticipated album "Thank U, Next" just before the Grammys - slammed producer Ken Ehrlich over her decision not to perform, suggesting he was "lying" about her readiness.

"I'm not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight", she tweeted.

Top nominees Gaga, Monae, Cardi B, Carlile and country star Kacey Musgraves are all due to take the stage at the Staples Center.

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

Wizards change course, dump Otto Porter on Bulls
The Chicago Bulls will be relying a lot on the scoring output from Markkanen the rest of this season alongside Zach LaVine . This season, he's played 41 games and has averaged 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists.

At almost the two-hour point of the show, country duo Dan + Shay seemed ebullient when they announced Drake's name as victor for best rap song.

The song's striking video from Childish Gambino - the alter ego of actor and recording artist Donald Glover, who has snagged three Grammys so far - racked up more than 35 million YouTube views in just two days last spring.

Here were her full remarks: "I gotta thank God".

To help combat the Grammys' much-discussed diversity problem, the Recording Academy expanded the major categories to eight nominees each - so now that the field is wider than ever, expect some upsets. Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and one scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

Others set to perform Sunday included Cardi B, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Diana Ross, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Little Big Town, Post Malone and Chloe x Halle.

There will also be a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, who died last August.
