Private Jet Charter to the 2019 Grammys to attend music’s biggest night on Sunday, Feb. 10, when the 61st annual Grammy Awards bring together many of the industry’s most respected names for the Recording Academy’s annual celebration live from the Los Angeles’ Staples Center! The 2019 Grammys unveiled an impressive pool of nominees in December, with Kendrick Lamar leading the pack of nominees with eight nods, followed by Drake with seven, and Brandi Carlile and producer Boi-1da with six each. This year, the Recording Academy expanded the Grammys four major categories (album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist) from five to eight nominees, making room to acknowledge a broader range of artists and genres. The Recording Academy also claims to have made greater efforts this year to diversify its voting body of roughly 12,000, reaching out to women and people of color specifically about becoming new members while requiring longtime members to re-qualify based on recent work.
2019 Grammys Host is Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys will host this year’s awards, replacing James Corden, who hosted the show in 2017 and 2018. Keys will be the first woman to host the Grammys since 2005, when Queen Latifah was the master of ceremonies. The awards went hostless from 2006 to 2011 before LL Cool J became the awards’ recurring host from 2012 to 2016 and then Corden took over in 2017. Keys is a 29-time Grammy nominee and 15-time winner, with her most recent win in 2013 in the best R&B album category for “Girl On Fire.”
The star-studded lineup of performers includes many of the 2019 nominees: Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Dan + Shay and Post Malone. Additional artists scheduled to perform include Miley Cyrus and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as Diana Ross, who will perform a retrospective of her legendary hits as part of a Grammys celebration of her contributions to music.
Artists Being Honored at Grammys Events
The most famous Grammys event of the week is Clive Davis’ star-studded pre-Grammys gala, which the legendary producer hosts with the Recording Academy the night before the awards. This year’s gala on Feb. 9 will honor Clarence Avant, a former label executive and artist manager in addition to his work in radio and music publishing, known to many in the industry as the “Godfather of Black Music.” The Recording Academy will also honor Dolly Parton as their 2019 Person of the Year for MusiCares, the Recording Academy’s charity that supports musicians in critical times of financial need. Parton will be honored with a tribute concert, in which artists including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Leon Bridges, Don Henley, Pink, Mavis Staples, Chris Stapleton, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will cover Parton’s hits, with Parton performing a headlining set.
