BTS Strike a Pose on the Red Carpet at Grammys 2019

Their absence was seen as a snub of an awards show that has often shut hip-hop artists out of its top prizes, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States.

At this year's ceremonies, Drake was up for a total of five awards that include Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and twice for Best Rap Performance.

But the Grammys are just the latest accomplishment for the Korean boy band this year. The song and album is also up for record of the year and album of the year, respectively.

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. "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.

Fifteen-time Grammy Award victor Alicia Keys will host the ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as nominees wait to find out who will take home the win for popular awards like record of the year and album of the year.

Just hours before her big Grammy wins, Lady Gaga won the Original Music award at the 2019 BAFTAs with her A Star Is Born director and co-star Bradley and musical consultant Lukas Nelson. She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken". Other big stars also declined to attend, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards.

Spurrier said . "They saw enough good plays after the first quarter or so, and we finally put on a little bit of a show". The Head Ball Coach took the sideline for the sixth different team in his coaching career.

Ariana Grande has said no thanks to the Grammy Awards. "Thank you for my family", she said.

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

Viewers can expect performances from Miley Cyrus, Yolanda Adams, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, Cardi B, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, H.E.R. and more.

Details: Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic take over hosting duties, and ask the arriving stars what will no doubt be deep, probing questions.

To help combat the Grammys' much-discussed diversity problem, the Recording Academy expanded the major categories to eight nominees each - so now that the field is wider than ever, expect some upsets. A representative for the Grammys didn't return an email seeking clarification about the tribute.

A performance honoring the legacy of the late "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin is also expected.
