The TDE emcee's Black Panther: The Album is up for Album Of The Year.

Carlile - this year's most-nominated woman - said women must promote each other to bring about change.

Women are also hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them previous year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night. "I can pull together a performance overnight and you know that, Ken. It's going UP on February 10!" Some prominent figures whom the Grammys have "alienated", per the Times, include Drake, Frank Ocean, Kanye West and Jay-Z, who called out the 2018 Grammys specifically on a track from Everything Is Love, his joint album with wife Beyonce.

The music business will be partying ahead of the show at celebrations including the pre-Grammy gala hosted by the Recording Academy and Clive Davis, the Family Tree Entertainment music managers pre-Grammy brunch and the Music Is Universal artist showcase hosted by Lucian Grainge. "Throughout her exciting career, I have watched her become a powerful force within the music industry and beyond".

Keys announced that she'd be hosting the show in a video posted to her YouTube channel.

In our system of justice, the model is that appeals courts only decide questions of law based on the factual record before them. In his dissent, Kavanaugh cited the law's 45-day window for doctors to obtain the admitting privileges to stay within the law.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar - who won a Pulitzer Prize for his album DAMN. but has yet to snare a Grammy for Album of the Year - earned eight nods while Canadian rapper Drake snagged seven.

The Grammys broadcasts at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on CBS.

Brandi Carlile, the folk singer nominated for six Grammys including album, song and record of the year, looked to Monae and said: "Girl, I would vote you into presidency". Also teaming up for performances throughout the night are St. Vincent and Dua Lipa as well as Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga. Also, current nominee Dua Lipa will perform with Grammy victor St. Vincent. In what is sure to be a Grammy moment to remember, Yolanda Adams, Fantasia, and Andra Day will honor the legendary Aretha Franklin.

It's been an exceptionally tiring few months for the entertainment world, between fervent backlash to the Super Bowl halftime show lineup and the hullabaloo over who would host the Oscars (no one), how many nominations polarizing films Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody would receive (five each), how many original song nominees would be performing live (all of them, apparently thanks to Lady Gaga) and, well. we could go on.
