But we'll pause there, if only to save our breath for the latest award show drama - this time, concerning the Grammys. Everyone from Lady Gaga to Dolly Parton showed up at the Staples Center in Los Angeles dressed to impress.

Alicia Keys is set to host the Grammys this year.

Untouchable pop star Ariana Grande - who dropped her highly anticipated album Thank U, Next just before the Grammys - slammed producer Ken Ehrlich over her decision not to perform, suggested he was "lying" about her readiness. Grande was quick to refute this account on Twitter, her chosen medium for handling such matters. "I see you", Monae said. She ended the tweet with her trademark black heart emoji. Want to know how to get a Grammys live stream? The 61st Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday. "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".

Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke". Ehrlich told The New York Times in an article also published on Thursday that the rappers had also declined his invitations to perform at the show. In 1989, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff boycotted the show after they learned that the presentation of the best rap performance award wouldn't be televised, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Keys told CBS news this year's greater representation from women was "far overdue". Despite receiving eight nominations that year - the most of anyone - he went home empty-handed.

We're thrilled for what's in store for her. " She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays", he added. The announcement of her departure strikes another massive blow to the hit series after Andrew Lincoln left late past year .

The Grammys are in even worse shape than the Oscars when it comes to figuring out ratings and appeal, and face a continued low-key boycott from music's biggest names on account of an ongoing problem with representation across nominations.

The music business will be partying ahead of the show at celebrations including the pre-Grammy gala hosted by the Recording Academy and Clive Davis, the Family Tree Entertainment music managers pre-Grammy brunch and the Music Is Universal artist showcase hosted by Lucian Grainge. Christian singer Lauren Daigle also won Grammys. Actor Bradley Cooper is also in London to attend the BAFTA film awards, while his "A Star is Born" lead actress Lady Gaga takes the Grammy stage to perform record and song of the year nominee "Shallow". Taylor Swift, who was snubbed and scored one nomination, also won't be at the show.

Women are also hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them previous year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night. He later acknowledged that it was a "poor choice of words", and his much-criticized remarks forced the academy to launch a new task force focused on inclusion and diversity. Portnow announced later in the year that he would not seek to extend his contract, which ends this year. This year, 15 women are nominated in the big four categories, including Gaga, Chloe x Halle, Carlile, Janelle Monae, and Cardi B. The annual event will be hosted by 15-time Grammy victor Alicia Keys.

Stuff will be live blogging Monday afternoon's Grammy Awards, starting with the red carpet action from midday.
