‘Music’s biggest night’, the Grammys, returns this Monday, bringing together the industry’s biggest stars in an annual celebration of the best music of the year.
The awards season switches gear with the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, switching the emphasis on movies and TV to the music industry.
Nominees were announced back in December and feature the usual suspects. Megastars Beyonce, Post Malone, Ariana Grande and P!nk feature, but a few artists stand out.
Kendrick Lamar is going to struggle to ‘Be Humble’ after earning eight nods, followed by Drake with seven and Brandi Carlile and producer Boi-1da with six apiece.
Mike Bozzi, Cardi B, H.E.R., Maren Morris, Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga and producer Soundwave, all earned five nominations each.
There will be plenty of boring awards handed out on the night, but be honest, you watch the Grammys for the fancy outfits, the acceptance speeches, the performances and for when they pan into the crowd and show Rihanna looking bored.
To be able to do all that you’ll actually have to watch the show, and here’s how you can do so in Australia. All times reflect AEDT.
