"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". "I have to say, this is a golden age of composing", Kernis said, shouting out his peers in his acceptance speech. Alicia Keys is hosting this year's event - and she's the first woman to do so in over a decade.

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.

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated at last year's Grammy Awards, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the night's top award, Lorde, didn't get a chance to perform onstage.

Brandi Carlile, the folk singer nominated for six Grammys including album, song and record of the year, looked to Monae and said: "Girl, I would vote you into presidency".

This year, five of the eight Album of the Year nominations went to female artists: Cardi B, Carlile, Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and country star Kacey Musgraves. Women also have a strong presence in those top categories, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai.

E!'s red carpet coverage, hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic, starts at 6 p.m.; CBS's special, hosted by Nancy O'Dell, Kevin Frazier, Keltie Knight and Eve, kicks off at 7 p.m.

Among other big names are Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Camilla Cabello, Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, St. Vincent, Chloe x Halle and Travis Scott. She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken".

Alicia Keys is set to host the Grammys this year.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told the Associated Press that Grande, who is nominated for best pop vocal performance and best pop vocal album, declined to perform Sunday because she "felt it was too late for her to pull something together". 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.

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". A representative for the Grammys didn't return an email seeking clarification about the tribute.

Hosted by 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys, this year's broadcast features performances by Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes and rapper Cardi B. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
