Lady Gaga Slays With Powerful Rendition Of ‘Shallow’ At The Grammys

LOS ANGELES CA- FEBRUARY 08 H.E.R. performs during Basic Magazine and H.E.R. Pre Grammy Party at the Private Residence of the CEO of Absolut Elyx

Regardless, the performers are Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, Dolly Parton, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R., Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug, Chloe x Halle, Mark Ronson and Dan + Shay.

Musgraves, also nominated for best country album, song and performance, said she's been trying to relax this week ahead of the show.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though. Grande was quick to refute this account on Twitter, her chosen medium for handling such matters. "The point is, you've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown". Gaga tweeted, "I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammys to show them our love as well". She ended the tweet with her trademark black heart emoji. "But music told me not to listen to them".

In her first time as host, Keys earned largely positive reviews from the internet reviewers of social media.

"Shallow" was up for four awards during Grammys night, including Record of the Year; it also won Best Song Written for Visual Media.

The disturbing "This is America" video took the internet by storm last spring, amassing more than 35 million views on YouTube in just two days.

Rappers Post Malone ("Beerbongs & Bentleys") and Drake's best-seller "Scorpion" are also vying for the top prize.

The Grammys' tense relationship with the hip-hop community goes back decades.

For the second consecutive year, black hip-hop artists are leading the pack - but observers are still wondering if nominations success can translate into wins. 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. This means Cooper won't be available to perform with Gaga at the Grammys, but they are expected to perform together for the Oscars.

Songstress Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy victor, is set to host Sunday´s ceremony - the first woman to do so in 14 years.

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

Hopes that women would get their due comes after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them a year ago to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night. But it was female artists who dominated nominations in the top categories.

The brazen comment drew outrage and prompted the executive, Neil Portnow, to say he would resign when his contract expires this summer.

There'll be more news to come tonight.
