The 61st Annual Grammy Awards 2019 air Sunday evening on CBS, featuring guest performers, celebrity presenters and nominees including Record of the Year contenders such as “I Like It,” “The Joke,” “This Is America,” “God’s Plan,” “Shallow,” “All the Stars,” “Rockstar” and “The Middle.”
Alicia Keys hosts the 2019 Grammy Awards, which will features such performers as Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, Post Malone, Little Big Town, Janelle Monae, Dolly Parton, Yolanda Adams, Travis Scott, Katy Perry and Diana Ross.
Presenters include Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bridges, Alessia Cara, Smokey Robinson, BTS, Cedric the Entertainer, Bob Newhart, John Mayer, and more.
But as with many awards shows, the most entertaining, unpredictable moments are likely to happen before the festivities begin, on the red carpet. Critics may carp about the Grammy Awards themselves going to bland, middle-of-the-road acts instead of trailblazers, but Grammy red carpet fashion is usually wilder and more fun to gawk at then the self-consciously chic finery stars sport to the Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmys and more.
