Stick right here as we live blog the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, including all of the winners (starting at noon for the pre-telecast winners, on through to Album of the Year and Best New Artist), the best performances (from Cardi B to Lady Gaga) and all of the memorable moments from host Alicia Keys and so many A-list presenters: BTS!

Music's biggest night is nearly here, as the 61st Annual Grammy Awards air live on CBS this Sunday.

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. Gambino also received a number of nominations, including Song of the Year for his work on "This Is America".

The live ceremony in Los Angeles could see Cardi B take home her first ever Grammy and potentially become the first rapper since 2004 to win the coveted album of the year award for her "Invasion of Privacy". The event also highlighted her organization Fem the Future, which empowers women in music to take on roles as engineers, producers, music video directors and more. Despite being nominated for multiple awards, all three acts declined the opportunity to perform.

The Recording Academy has made an effort to diversify its membership amid complaints that the Grammys are not an even playing field for minority and women artists.

It looks like the Grammy Awards will be embroiled in drama, yet again.

Parts of the country could also experience hail and thunder. "Strong and gusty southwesterly winds will gradually abate". The wind warnings continue for Northern Ireland and Scotland into Saturday as does the heavy rain warning.

Ehrlich told the AP that Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together". She said: "I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I'm going to bring that vibe and energy".

Jennifer Lopez will be performing at the Grammys this year.

"It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.

"It's about collaboration. It's about feeling supported". Lamar has been snubbed for album of the year in 2018, 2016, and 2014 by Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, and Daft Punk, respectively (not to mention losing best rap album to Macklemore in 2014).

Do the Grammys also have a race problem? Some complained that a black artist should be involved in the tribute, while others said stronger vocalists should perform over Lopez.

Tributes to Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton are also planned, alongside a Diana Ross performance in honour of her 75th birthday and her musical achievements.
