Grammys 2020: Check out the full list of winners

2020_Grammy_awards

When we all fall asleep, where do we go? If you’re Billie Eilish, laughing all the way home with six new shiny Grammys.

On Sunday (Jan. 26), the 62nd annual Grammy Awards took over the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate some of music’s biggest names. Taking place mere hours after Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and others were killed in a helicopter crash, the annual awards show celebrated the NBA legend “in the house he helped build” as well as those top entertainers of 2019.

Eilish, who had a spectacular 2019 and 2020 is looking no different, went home with a total of six awards. The “Bad Guy” singer won all four major categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist) as well as Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Engineered Album.

Eilish is not only the first female to make a clean sweep of the major categories, but also the youngest to win Album of the Year. The honor was previously held by Taylor Swift, who was 20 years old when she won for Fearless.

Now, can we please break the “Big Four” curse for her sake?

The singer also took over the stage to showcase her vocals by performing her non-album track “when the party’s over.”

Keeping it in the family, Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas went home with the award for Producer of the Year.

Lizzo is “100% that bitch” coming in with a total of three awards, including Best Solo Pop Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Like Eilish, she also took the stage to perform versions of “Cuz I Love You” and “Truth Hurts.”

Because giving awards is only a part of the annual event, the Grammys also gave us a slew of performances to get us through the three-hour show.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton showcased their love with “Nobody But You,” the Jonas Brothers ripped through their new single “What a Man Gotta Do” and “Only Human,” Usher paid tribute to the late and great Prince, Tyler, the Creator joined forces with Boyz II Men and Charlie Wilson for “Earfquake,” and Demi Lovato returned to the stage after her 2018 overdose with her new ballad “Anyone.”

All in all, not a completely horrible way to spend your Sunday night.

Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Gwen Stefani to perform at the 2020 Grammy Awards

With just a few weeks lefts before the 62nd annual Grammy Awards invades Los Angeles, the first round of performers has been announced.

On Wednesday (Jan. 8), the Recording Academy revealed that Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and Aerosmith will take the stage during this year’s event set to take place at the end of January.

Lizzo and Eilish will not only make their performance debut during the live telecast but are also nominated for a slew of awards.

The “Truth Hurts” crooner is nominated for a total of eight awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance. Not too far behind is Eilish, who received a total of six nominations, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.

While Stefani and Shelton have been to the Grammys (and won some) on their own, the duo will reportedly make their debut as a couple on stage with a duet. We’re going to assume they’re going to perform their collaborative track, “Nobody But You.”

Because it wouldn’t be an award show without bringing in some gratuitous iconic musicians, the Recording Academy announced that Aerosmith will take the stage to perform a medley of their hits. This gig marks the group’s return to the Grammys stage, 29 years after their debut at the 33rd Grammy Awards in 1991.

In addition to the performance, the four-time Grammy winners will be honored as the 2020 MusiCares Person (shouldn’t it be persons?) of the Year.

The MusiCares Person of the Year honor recognizes the group for their philanthropic efforts over the past five decades as well as their influence in the music world.

The 2020 Grammy Awards will broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26. The show begins at 8 p.m.ET/ 5 p.m. PT and airs on CBS.

Alicia Keys will once again take over hosting duties during this year’s event.

Kendrick Lamar leads 2019 Grammy nominations with eight nods

Kendrick Lamar and the team behind the “Black Panther” soundtrack have something else to celebrate this week; they now lead the pack with the most Grammy nominations for the 2019 incarnation of the awards show. On Friday (Dec. 7), Grammy award-winner Alessia Cara, famed Apple Music host Zane Lowe, Shawn Mendes, and 2019 Grammy-nominated Janelle Monáe appeared on CBS This Morning to announce the nominees for several of the awards show’s categories.

Leading the pack with a total of eight nominations is Kendrick Lamar and the team behind Black Panther: The Album. Lamar is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Song Written for Visual Media, and more for his work on the soundtrack for the record-smashing Marvel film. The list of Grammy nominations for the movie soundtrack come less than a day after the album was nominated for two Golden Globes for Best Original Score – Motion Picture for Ludwig Göransson and Best Original Song – Motion Picture for “All the Stars,” Lamar’s now Grammy-nominated song.

The music-from-movies trend does not end there as Lady Gaga earned a total of four nominations for her work on the “A Star is Born” soundtrack. Like Lamar, Gaga is nominated in the Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Song Written for Visual Media categories for the film’s breakout single “Shallow.” Gaga also received a nomination in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for her song “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)” off her last studio album, Joanne.

Behind Lamar with a total of seven nominations is Drake while producer Boi-1da and Brandi Carlile earned six apiece. Coming in with five nominations are Cardi B, Childish Gambino, H.E.R., Lady Gaga, Maren Morris, producer Sounwave, and mastering engineer Mike Bozzi.

The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10, 2019. The show will air live on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

Surprise Performers Confirmed for the Grammys

grammy
The Grammys have revealed some of the performers that will be taking the stage at the annual music award show, but the biggest surprise on the list comes courtesy of some French DJs who like to wear helmets.

Can you guess who it is?

Well, we aren’t going to give you enough time to guess because the biggest shock on the list is that Daft Punk will be taking the stage to perform. This will be the first time in six years that the electronic duo will be performing on live television; the last time they performed on the show was in 2008 with Kanye West.

Since the release of Random Access Memories, the duo really haven’t done any public performance even though they did appear briefly on stage during the MTV Video Music Awards, but it was just to promote their newest single “Lose Yourself to Dance.” The Recording Academy is billing Daft Punk’s appearance as an “exclusive” one, so who knows, maybe it is. 

Also confirmed to take the stage is Kendrick Lamar who is nominated for seven awards including “Album of the Year” for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, “New Artist” as well as “Best Rap Performance” for “Swimming Pools (Drank).” Imagine Dragons who are fresh from performing a killer mash-up of their songs on the American Music Awards will once again be hitting the stage for the Grammys where they are nominated for two awards one of which is “Record of the Year.”

Grammy veteran P!nk will also appear on the award show to perform what we assume is her Grammy-nominated song, “Just Give Me a Reason” with fun. frontman, Nate Ruess.

There will also be a special Grammy Moment performance by country artists Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton. The performance has been described as a tribute to the Texas and Oklahoma roots of the artists.

LL Cool J will once again be returning for hosting duties during the live broadcast of the show which will take place on January 26, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. CBS will be airing the event live starting at 8 p.m. EST.
