The 61st Grammy Awards will be broadcast from The Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California.

"It allows us to hear one another, to invite one another in", Obama added.

Gaga told the crowd: "They said I was weird, that my look, that my choices, that my sound wouldn't work".

Lady Gaga, the Black Panther soundtrack, and folk singer Brandi Carlile took home early Grammy awards on Sunday (Feb 10) ahead of a female-flavoured telecast hosted by R&B singer Alicia Keys. "There's nothing better than this".

Women artists scored nominations in all of the top categories, after being largely muted a year ago: Gaga, Carlile, rapper Cardi B and pop futurist Janelle Monae are among the frontrunners. "This is a business where sometimes, you know, it's up to a bunch of people who might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from NY or anybody else or a brother from Houston.my brother Travis [Scott]".

As fans know all too well and are very proud, BTS was at the Grammys this year, not only to present an award but also because their Love Yourself: Tear album, and its art director, HuskyFox, got nominated for the Best Recording Package.

This is expected to result in a one-time exceptional redundancy cost of around £200 million for the luxury unit of Tata Motors. Guenter Butschek, CEO and MD, Tata Motors, said "Fiscal year 2019 so far has been a challenging period for the industry".

"Thank you so much. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more". "And I am not hung up on what happens or doesn't happen", she said. "I wish Bradley was here with my right now".

Gaga's hit song Shallow from the movie A Star Is Born took the Grammy for best song written for visual media, while her song Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Going) won for pop solo performance.

This now marks the second time that Drake has earned the honor of Best Rap Song, having won the award in 2017 for "Hotline Bling".

Women have a strong presence in the top categories.

H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith are also up for best new artist.

This year's show exhibits some efforts to combat these diversity issues - the academy, which The Times reported has invited 900 new members to vote, expanded major categories from five to eight nominees. Pop singer Ariana Grande recently tweeted that she pulled out of performing this year due to a creative disagreement with its producers, while rappers Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover), Drake and Kendrick Lamar all reportedly turned down offers from the show, which has a fraught history with hip-hop artists.
