AP Was There: The 1st Grammy Awards

Tyler The Creator hopes to win Grammy over Jay-Z, can he do it?

An eclectic all-star lineup of artists, musicians, actors, and comedians will take the stage as presenters at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards®.

ET's Cameron Mathison and Sophie Schillaci joined forces in our Absolut Lime Green Room to reflect on our favorite GRAMMYs of the past. As this year's Golden Globes proved-with actresses wearing all black in support of the Times Up movement-award shows have become a platform for celebrities to talk about important issues, and the Grammys should be no different, with attendees donning white roses in honor of Time's Up.

The GRAMMYs stage has seen plenty of powerful pairings, including Elton John and Eminem's collaboration in 2001.

This year, the Recording Academy's annual celebration returns to New York City and the hallowed halls of Madison Square Garden.

Others who earned multiple nominations include Pharrell, Ledisi, Nothing More, Alison Krauss, Daniel Caesar and Foo Fighters.

English music channel Vh1 is all set to air 60th Grammy Awards in India on 29 January at 7 am, with a primetime repeat at 9 pm.

Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and Bruno Mars lead the nominees for the 2018 Grammys.

While numerous 2018 Grammy nominees top the Billboard charts and are some of the best-selling musicians today, few are among the best-selling artists of all time. With years worth of major-label support behind her, Cara is a high-profile industry darling who was getting nominated for best-new-artist categories at other awards shows in 2016 off the strength of her 2015 breakthrough single, Here. This year's ceremony finds several nominated artists on the verge of making history. The man with the biggest song and album of the year before didn't have his voice heard one time during the Grammys.

"As the birthplace of salsa in East Harlem, hip-hop in the Bronx and punk rock in the East Village, it's a fitting return to the city that gets the whole world dancing", said Menin, adding that it had taken a year of negotiations to secure the ceremony. "It was a bit of a routine that we used to have that we got away from for good business reasons, hard conditions and the recession", said Portnow, referring to the previous practice of regularly moving the show between NY and Los Angeles.

How many Grammys does Taylor Swift have? He is tapped for Best Record and Album of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Song, and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Despite being up against Lamar's "DAMN." and Jay-Z's "4:44", "Flower Boy" is a worthy opponent - some of the album's content is unprecedented in the rap community, such as the explicit references to Okonma's sexuality and lyrics that call out the rap community on its homophobia. This comes four months after she beats Beyonce at the MTV Video Music Awards, where her acceptance speech is interrupted by Kanye West's infamous "imma let you finish" moment.
