Lady Gaga Wins Best Song Written for Visual Media Grammy for 'Shallow'

Rihanna during the arrivals at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Award

This year's award ceremony will be hosted by 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys and this will be her first time hosting the ceremony. Women artistes are leading the nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

Lady Gaga scooped up five nominations including for both Record and Song of the Year for her heart-pounding hit Shallow, which she performed in the film A Star Is Born with co-star Bradley Cooper.

If you want to watch the celebrities walk the red carpet, tune in early to watch the live streaming on the official Grammy Awards website, Grammy.com.

Keys told CBS news this year's greater representation from women was "far overdue". "We feel this Grammys is going to be different and bigger and better than any other". "As much as it is about me, it's not just about me", said Monae, who gave a powerful speech past year ahead of Kesha's emotional and striking performance celebrating sisterhood and women's rights. "I'm just so proud to be involved and to go into the studio with such an incredible talent, including the talent that's out there tonight and thank you guys for giving us this platform". Janelle Monae's "Dirty Computer", country singer Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour", eclectic musician Brandi Carlile's "By The Way, I Forgive You", newcomer H.E.R's self-titled "H.E.R.", and the soundtrack album to superhero movie "Black Panther", which was produced by Lamar, round out the contenders for best album. "This is a moment for women to love on each other and let each other know", she added.

"When they don't take home the big prize", he said, "the regard of the academy, and what the Grammys represent, continues to be less meaningful to the hip-hop community, which is sad".

Six of the best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. 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.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though.

This year's nominees mark a departure from the 2018 Grammys, where Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow was criticized when he said women need to "step up" when asked about the lack of women in the top categories.

Taylor Swift, who has just one nod for her best-selling 2017 album "Reputation", is filming in London.
