Keys has promised to craft a show that champions an "amazing energy" and celebration.

Record of the Year: This goes to the person who performed the song - and all those involved in the making of the song, like the producer, the engineer the mixer.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake are the top Grammy contenders, with Lamar earning eight nods and and Drake seven. The was until producer Ken Ehrlich told reporters that Grande felt it was too late to pull together a performance. "It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more". E!'s red carpet pre-show will begin at 6/5c.

Meanwhile, Andra Day, Yolanda Adams and Fantasia will join forces for an Aretha Franklin tribute performance, and Diana Ross will celebrate herself with a special 75th birthday performance.

Looming predictions of rain could also put a damper on this year's awards ceremony.

The GRAMMYs have a stacked line up of performers including Cardi B, Travis Scott, and Post Malone, but could it have been even crazier?

It looks like the Grammy Awards will be embroiled in drama, yet again.

Additionally, current nominee Dua Lipa will perform with St. Vincent.

Cabello is up for two prizes this weekend, including Best Pop Solo Performance for her smash hit "Havana" and Best Pop Solo Album for her 2018 self-titled debut album, Camila. Brandi Carlile is up for six awards, while Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Maren Morris and H.E.R. each have five nominations.

Traditionally, artists are allowed to perform the songs they are nominated for, and Grande isn't nominated for "7 Rings", considering it recently came out.

Best New Artist: Why is there confusion over that one?
