Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande win early Grammy awards

"I'm in tears with honor and gratitude..." she tweeted after her win for A Star Is Born was announced. She ended the tweet with her trademark black heart emoji.

Carlile told the AP she stands "behind Ariana Grande's decision to stand up for herself and her art".

Meanwhile, Keys had talked about the hosting duties last month.

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards air Sunday evening on CBS, featuring guest performers, celebrity presenters and nominees including Record of the Year contenders such as "I Like It", "The Joke", "This Is America", "God's Plan", "Shallow", "All the Stars", "Rockstar" and "The Middle".

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.

Citytv will go live at the 61st Grammys starting at 4PM PT / 7PM ET, available through an online live stream at Citytv.com/GRAMMYs and also on TV (check your local listings).

That being said, not only did they look stylish in their black tuxedos, they also proved how professional they really are by showing no signs of being exhausted despite the long flight hours.

Fast forward 30 years, and the Grammys are still accused of mistreating hip-hop and R&B artists, who rarely take home awards in top categories.

The love from the Grammys didn't stop there, and it didn't stop with "Shallow".

Ehrlich, in The Times interview, acknowledged that the Grammys "continue to have a problem in the hip-hop world".

Details: As we'll hear a few times, this is "music's biggest night".

Women have a strong presence in the top categories.

Women artists scored nominations in all of the top categories, after being largely muted a year ago: rapper Cardi B, pop diva Lady Gaga, pop futurist Janelle Monae and folk rocker Brandi Carlile are among the frontrunners. A study released by the University of Southern California's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative days before the ceremony found that of the 899 individuals who had been nominated for the previous six shows, 90.7 percent were men.

The early wins by women offered a positive sign that change may be afoot at the Recording Academy, which has faced intense backlash over its apparent struggle to embrace diversity.

When asked about the lack of women in the top categories at the 2018 Grammys, Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said women need to "step up".
