2019 Grammy Awards Highlights

An overview of the 61st Grammy Awards Ceremony


This year’s Grammy Awards was hosted by 15 time Grammy winner and singer-songwriter, Alicia Keys. She is the first woman to host the show in over a decade. Keys opened the show with (in my opinion) some of our times most iconic women: Michelle Obama, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jennifer Lopez, and Lady Gaga. Keys was one of the several artists who performed last night, with others such as Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Post Malone, and more.

There were also several stars that did not show for the ceremony: Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Childish Gambino, and others.

Here are some of the winners from the evening:

Best R&B Album: “H.E.R” H.E.R
