Drake's "God's Plan" Wins Best Rap Song At GRAMMYs

Drake accepted his Grammy Award for Best Rap Song by essentially telling the audience at home that awards do not matter, particularly in an opinion-based industry. A Star Is Born has completely sweeped the music categories at the big awards shows, including the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards.

The seven-piece K-pop sensation were on hand to present at the awards show and their album Love Yourself: Tear was also nominated for best recording package.

This marks yet another rough year for the Grammys.

Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke".

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated at last year's Grammy Awards, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the night's top award, Lorde, didn't get a chance to perform onstage.

The singer, who sent the tweets just hours before the highly anticipated release of her album Thank U, Next, is up for two awards this year: best pop solo performance for God Is a Woman, and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.

Hence, Manchester United has a good chance to beat the Ligue 1 leaders to assert their dominance in European football. He even went so far to say that he believes Solskjaer has "already got the job" but it hasn't been announced yet.

But Gambino, alter ego of actor Donald Glover, as well as Canadian rapper Drake and Kendrick Lamar, were among several influential stars who were no shows at the biggest night in music. "I am such a misfit", Carlile said, speaking about the difficulties of coming out as a lesbian in her teen years and never attending school dances.

The Grammys have also struggled with gender inequality, an issue that came to its head past year.

Ariana Grande won her first Grammy in the same week that she publicly blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show. Instead, it was 100 percent Gaga - and singer Gaga, not actress Gaga - up on that stage, back to her old tricks of belting out lyrics amid leg kicks, insane faces and whipping her hair back and forth.

Gaga, Carlile, Monae, Cardi B and Musgraves are all due to take the stage. 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.

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.
