Notable winners

Kacey Musgrave wins album of the year

“I love country music with everything that I am,” she said.

Musgraves thanked her husband Rustin and her younger sister for shooting and designing all of her album covers.

​J.Lo brings Vegas to her Motown tribute

Jennifer Lopez brought flare from her Vegas performances in to her Motown tribute Sunday. She sang “The Best Things in Life Are Free,” “Do You Love Me” and “Please Mr. Postman.” Smokey Robinson joined her onstage to perform “My Girl.” She was also joined onstage by Alicia Keys and Ne-Yo.

However, some fans criticized Lopez for taking on the tribute for Motown, a record label founded in 1959 that helped black musicians break into mainstream American music.

Cardi B makes history with first Grammy win

After performing her latest single “Money,” rapper Cardi B solidified a breakout year by becoming the first solo woman to win best rap album for her debut “Invasion of Privacy.”

She thanked her husband, Migos rapper Offset and their daughter Kulture. She also admitted how nervous she was during the speech.

“I’m sorry. I just, oh the nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she joked. She then explained what it was like learning she was pregnant before her album was finished.

“[Offset] was like you’re going to do this album. We’re going to have this baby and do this album.”

​Dua Lipa throws shade at Grammy president’s past comments

Dua Lipa won best new artist Sunday and threw shade at Recording Academy President Neil Portnow, who was criticized last year after saying women needed to “step up” if they wanted to see more female artists nominated at the annual ceremony.

“Where I want to begin is by saying how honored I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists this year because I guess this year we’ve really stepped up,” Dua Lipa said Sunday.

This year, women dominated in most major categories. H.E.R. received five noms and brought home two awards. Cardi B also became the first solo woman to win best rap album.

​”I’m speechless right now”: H.E.R. wins best R&B album

H.E.R. won the award for best R&B album but was quick to remind the audience that her self-titled work was an EP (extended play).

“The first thing I want to say is this is unbelievable. Second, this is not even an album, it’s an EP,” she said before inviting her team up to the stage.

“I’m speechless right now, I’m holding back tears. But I really want to say thank you so much to God, first and foremost and my parents who are in the building right now and my wonderful sister, mom, dad, this is for all the sacrifices that you made for me.”

​Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson’s performance was anything but “Shallow”

After winning the award for best pop duo/group performance, Lady Gaga took the stage with Mark Ronson to give a stellar performance of “Shallow” from the film “A Star is Born.”

Lady Gaga has won three of her five Grammy nominations, including best pop solo performance for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?).

​Drake says artists don’t need awards to measure success

As he accepted the award for best rap song, Drake took a slight dig at the ceremony by saying artists shouldn’t measure success by the awards they win.

“I want to take this opportunity while I’m up here to talk to all the kids watching, aspiring to do music. All my peers that make music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth, I wanna let you know, we play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport. It’s not the NBA where at the end of the year, you’re holding a trophy because you made the right decisions or won games.”

Over the years, critics and artists have slammed the Grammys for excluding black artists from its biggest categories. Drake said voters may not understand where hip-hop artists are coming from.

“This is a business where sometimes it’s up to a bunch of people that might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from New York, or a brother from Houston,” he continued.

“The point is, you’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word. If you are a hero in your hometown, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here,” he said of his Grammy trophy. “I promise you, you already won.”

​Cardi B brings flare to the Grammy stage

In her first solo Grammy performance, Cardi B brought a Josephine Baker-esque style performance to her latest single “Money,” complete with dancers and a grand piano opening. She received a standing ovation from her peers at the end of her performance.

Cardi B was nominated in five categories, including album of the year for her debut “Invasion of Privacy.”

Dolly Parton performs with Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus

Dolly Parton is performing hits with Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. Parton was named the Grammys’ 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year, in honor of her charity work.

She recently spoke to “CBS Sunday Morning” about her songwriting and shut down the idea of retirement.

“That’s my therapy; my little guitar’s my friend,” Parton said. “And when I’m in that zone — I call it my ‘God zone’ — I just love that time.”

​”This is America” wins best song

Childish Gambino didn’t attend tonight’s show but he just won his third award for “This is America.” So far he’s won best song, best music video and best rap/sung collaboration.

The song was the point of controversy last year after some listeners accused him of plagiarising a song from New York rapper Jase Harley. “This is America” and Harley’s “American Pharaoh” have a similar sound, and share similar themes in the lyrics. Glover’s team denied the accusations.

​Post Malone performs “Rockstar” without 21 Savage

Post Malone performed his hit single “Rockstar” without 21 Savage, who was detained by ICE agents last week. ICE said the British-born rapper entered the country illegally in 2005 and remained in the U.S. after his nonimmigrant visa expired the following year.

Post Malone wore a shirt that read “21 Savage” during the show. The Red Hot Chili Peppers joined him on stage to perform “Rockstar,” which was nominated in two categories: record of the year and best rap/sung performance.

Michelle Obama makes surprise appearance

In her opening, Alicia Keys brought out Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith. The stars shared stories of how music led them to success, and the former first lady could hardly get a word in without the crowd erupting.

“From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side (of Chicago) to the ‘Who run the world’ songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story,” Obama said on stage.

“I know that’s true for everybody here. Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note within every song.”

​Camila Cabello kicks off the show

Camila Cabello opened tonight’s show with an energized performance of her hit song “Havana.” She was joined on stage by rapper Young Thug and singers Ricky Martin and J Balvin.

​Chris Cornell wins posthumous award

The late Chris Cornell won the best rock performance award for “When Bad Does Good.” His daughter Toni and son Christopher accepted the award for their father Sunday. Cornell, 52, died in May 2017.

“He is a rock icon, the godfather of grunge and the creator of a movement, whose contribution to music history made a lasting impact across genres and generations,” Christopher told the audience, ET reports. “While he touched the hearts of millions, the most important thing he is known for, to us, is being the greatest father and our hero.”

Ariana Grande wins first Grammy

Ariana Grande skipped this year’s ceremony but won her first Grammy Award in her career. The 25-year-old singer won the award for best pop vocals for her album “Sweetener.” She tweeted her thanks Sunday evening.

​Leading the field

Kendrick Lamar has the most nominations of the night with eight. He’s being recognized for his work on the soundtrack of Marvel’s “Black Panther,” including his single “All the Stars” with SZA.

Drake is up for seven awards for his latest album “Scorpion.” His single “God’s Plan” is up for song of the year (for songwriters) and record of the year (for artist, engineers, mixers).
