Grammys 2019: How to watch the ceremony for free

Kendrick Lamar Drake and Childish Gambino

Details: As we'll hear a couple of times, this is "music's biggest night".

Also nominated three times this year, Scott is up for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for "Sicko Mode" as well as Best Rap Album for Astroworld. ("Tell the Grammys fuck that 0-for-8 shit/ Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?") Kanye West has won a staggering 21 Grammys, yet not a single one of them for album of the year.

Sunday's Grammys will also host the long-awaited return of Dolly Parton, who will take the stage to perform her music from the soundtrack from Dumplin'.

Viewers may also be paying close attention to the number of female winners, as previous year the show made headlines when Alessia Cara was the only woman to nab a solo Grammy. Also teaming up for performances throughout the night are St. Vincent and Dua Lipa as well as Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga. "As much as I'm nominated, I would not be anything without the village of women who are walking into their truth", she said.

Grammy organizers this year expanded the top four categories - album, record, song of the year, and best new artist - to eight nominees from five in a bid to diversify the contest. "This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future".

Lamar leads with eight nominations this year, followed by Drake with seven. "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", Grande tweeted following an Associated Press interview where Erhlich said that she "felt it was too late for her to pull something together".

What to expect: One person who won't be in attendance of the show is Ariana Grande, who reportedly had a dispute with show producers over what she should perform.

"I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken". It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend.

For a list of the complete nominations, visit the Grammys' site. Some complained that a black artist should be involved in the tribute, while others said stronger vocalists should perform over Lopez. They join previously announced performers J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Little Big Town, Post Malone, Ricky Martin, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monae, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Diana Ross, Arturo Sandoval and Young Thug.

Grammy winners Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and past Grammy nominee Andra Day will honor the legendary Aretha Franklin.

Twitter has been abuzz with news of the public disagreement between Ariana Grande and Grammy producers.
