2019 Grammy Awards

2019 Grammy Awards Live: How to stream online or watch on TV By Peter Martinez / CBS News

The 61st annual Grammys will air live Sunday evening 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy winner, will be hosting the event in Los Angeles for the first time in her career. She’s the first woman to host the show in more than a decade.

After backlash over the lack of female nominees last year, 2019 sees mostly young women in the best new artist category and five women competing with three men for album of the year.

“I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I’m going to bring that vibe and energy,” Keys said in January when the Recording Academy tapped her as host. “I’m so excited to be the master of ceremonies on the biggest night in music and celebrate the creativity, power and magic. I’m especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year! It’s going UP on Feb. 10!”

This will be Alicia Keys’ first time hosting the ceremony — which is returning to the West Coast this year — but it won’t be her first time on the Grammy stage. She has won 15 Grammys in her career.

“A dynamic artist with the rare combination of groundbreaking talent and passion for her craft, Alicia Keys is the perfect choice as host for our show,” said Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy. “Throughout her exciting career, I have watched her become a powerful force within the music industry and beyond. As an artist who speaks to the power of music for good, a role model, and a spokesperson for change, we are thrilled to have her on board for what’s sure to be an unforgettable Grammy Awards.”

Keys announced that she’d be hosting the show in a video posted to her YouTube channel. The video shows her breaking the news to her family, including her husband Swizz Beatz, a Grammy winner in his own right, whom she appears to have awakened.

“Congratulations,” he said. “But you could have waited till I got dressed.”

Grammy.com will host a premiere ceremony ahead of the show, starting at 6:30 p.m. ET, featuring host Shaggy along with presenters Lzzy Hale and Questlove handing out the first prizes of the day.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake are the top Grammy contenders, with Lamar earning eight nods and and Drake seven. Brandi Carlile is up for six awards, while Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Maren Morris and H.E.R. each have five nominations.

Current nominees Chloe x Halle, Grammy winner Lady Gaga, Grammy winner Mark Ronson and Grammy nominee Travis Scott are set to perform Sunday. Also, current nominee Dua Lipa will perform with Grammy winner St. Vincent.

Grammy winners Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and past Grammy nominee Andra Day will honor the legendary Aretha Franklin.

They join previously announced performers: J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, H.E.R., Little Big Town, Post Malone, Ricky Martin, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Diana Ross, Arturo Sandoval and Young Thug.

Defending series champion Joey Logano topped the speed chart during the first on-track action of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, but it was a rough start for Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman.

With roughly 45 minutes remaining in what served as the only practice for Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona (3 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), Elliott’s No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro drifted up into Ryan Newman’s No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustang, triggering a four-car scramble. Elliott was able to drive his car back to the garage, but the team has elected to go to a backup for tomorrow’s race.

“He tried to fill a hole that wasn’t really there and that started the mess,” Newman told FS1 after exiting the infield care center. For his part, Elliott said, “it looks like I just messed up.”

Hamlin received the most significant damage as his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry slammed nose-first into the outside wall, while Harvick spun into the grass trying to avoid the incident. In a collective effort between NASCAR officials and the Nos. 4 and 6 teams, Harvick and Newman were able put four new tires on their cars as they sat on the backstretch during the red-flag period, driving their machines back to the garage with minimal damage.

Logano recorded a fast lap of 196.786 miles per hour in the No. 22 Team Penske car, putting the new Ford Mustang at the top of the leaderboard in its official 2019 debut. Jimmie Johnson finished the session in second with a lap of 196.674 mph, while Austin Dillon (196.622 mph), Elliott (196.580 mph) and Harvick (196.511 mph) rounded out the top-five speeds.

The session was extended by five minutes due to the extended red flag.

Grammy Awards

Given the increasing chatter over who’s set to perform on the Grammy Awards — or, as in the case of Ariana Grande, who’s not — it may have slipped your mind that Sunday’s show will also feature the distribution of eight or nine golden trophies. (That’s how many Grammys are expected to be awarded on the live CBS telecast, with the remaining 70-something to be handed out during an untelevised ceremony Sunday afternoon.)

But forget about music’s biggest prize we, at least, have not. Here are some final predictions as show time approaches.

Album of the year

The Recording Academy’s decision to boost the number of nominees in the major categories from five to eight — one of several measures this year intended to bring some overdue diversity to the field — means there’s no clear front-runner for the night’s most prestigious title.

Oddsmakers have pointed to Kacey Musgraves’ “Golden Hour,” a quirky yet intimate country album that strikes the blend of tradition and innovation that academy members so often reward.

But the presence of another such album — Brandi Carlile’s “By the Way, I Forgive You” — could end up splitting the vote. The same goes for a pair of streaming hip-hop smashes in Drake’s “Scorpion” and Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys” and for two left-of-center R&B efforts in Janelle Monáe’s “Dirty Computer” and the self-titled debut by H.E.R.

That leaves Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy” and Kendrick Lamar’s soundtrack for “Black Panther,” the latter of which has the edge if only because this is the fourth time the celebrated rapper has been up for album of the year. With his three previous losses still a sore point for many, expect voters to attempt some damage control here.

Record of the year

The correct choice, of course, is “I Like It” by Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin — the irresistible (and inescapable) Latin-pop smash that united generations and felt like a political statement even as Cardi B rapped about her love of fancy sneakers that look like socks.

But it was just last year that a similarly geared number, “Despacito,” somehow lost this prize. And if there’s one thing the academy loves, it’s repeating its mistakes (as Lamar, among others, can tell you).

Absurdly, a rapper has never won this prize, which would seem to narrow the chances of Malone’s “Rockstar,” Drake’s “God’s Plan” and Lamar and SZA’s hit “Black Panther” duet, “All the Stars.” Ditto Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” though voters may have been sufficiently moved by that song’s video — in which Donald Glover addresses gun violence and racial terror with an unflinching eye — to relax their usual bias against hip-hop.

The smart money is on Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow,” a real-deal event record that’s taken on a life beyond “A Star Is Born” — and satisfies the Grammys’ well established desire to see a slick pop star go rootsy.

Song of the year

The academy’s highest-profile songwriting award — as opposed to record of the year, which recognizes performance and production — song of the year has historically made even less room for rap than the other category. So it’s almost impossible to imagine “God’s Plan,” “This Is America” or “All the Stars” winning here. (Tellingly, “I Like It” and “Rockstar” weren’t even nominated.)

Nods for Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” and Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood” reflect voters’ admiration for young songwriters who’ve paid close attention to their predecessors; the presence of “The Middle” — the country-pop-EDM collaboration from Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey — suggests the academy is less opposed to songwriting-by-committee than you might’ve thought. (“The Middle” has seven credited writers, more than any other nominee this year.)

But like recent tunes by Adele, Sam Smith, Lady Antebellum and the Dixie Chicks before it, “Shallow” seems primed to take both song and record of the year.

Best new artist

Expect more vote-splitting here, particularly between Bebe Rexha and Dua Lipa and between Luke Combs and Margo Price — although given that it’s been nearly a decade since a country act won best new artist, the latter two may never have had a chance to begin with.

Greta Van Fleet’s nomination feels like little more than a last-ditch effort to land a rock band somewhere in the major categories; Jorja Smith released an intriguing debut (and made some impressive guest appearances with Drake and Kali Uchis) but remains too obscure to win.

Who’s left? Chloe x Halle, the Beyoncé-mentored sister duo who sang “America the Beautiful” at last weekend’s Super Bowl, and H.E.R., whose album of the year nod makes voters’ preference clear.

There’s only one Grammys event that can pack Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman and Apple CEO Tim Cook into a room alongside music legends like Barbra Streisand and Quincy Jones and hot young stars including Travis Scott and Ella Mai.

Traditionally the biggest Grammys-weekend party led by one of music’s most legendary names, Clive Davis and the Recording Academy’s pre-Grammys gala takes place every year on the night before the awards. Stars descended on the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles Saturday to pose on the red carpet, watch the night’s performances – with a trio of sets paying tribute to Aretha Franklin – and celebrate music industry veteran Clarence Avant as 2019’s Grammy Salute to Industry Icons honoree.

And yet, the event didn’t feel quite as essential as it has in previous years, whether it was the lack of big-name performers or the absence of young stars in attendance – or the fact that another high-profile event earlier in the day may have stolen its thunder.

Read on for the most notable aspects of 2019’s Clive Davis gala, ahead of Sunday’s Grammys, which broadcast live on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Grammys 2019: Everything you need to know about the 61st annual show

Scott kicked off the evening with performances of his hits “Goosebumps” and “Sicko Mode,” addressing the crowd in between songs in an attempt to get people on their feet.

“I could’ve just stayed in the crib and watched Spongebob with Stormi all night,” he said, referencing his and Kylie Jenner’s baby daughter. “But I chose to come and party with y’all tonight, so I just wanna rage.”

His efforts paid off somewhat, as the black-tie attendees responded more energetically to his second song, with Scott meeting them halfway with a more subdued version of his normally-explosive live performance style.

The one constant at Davis’ galas is his lengthy shout-outs of luminaries in the audience, which often unfold over the course of several minutes in between performances. His first introduction of the gala was greeted with one of the night’s biggest reactions, as he greeted Nancy Pelosi, calling her a political figure who’s “front and center like never before,” as the crowd stood and applauded her after.

Davis’ speeches are seemingly his way of playing the role of a good host by giving the night’s celebrity attendees flattering welcomes, while also simultaneously reminding audience members of his prodigious influence in the industry, that he’s powerful enough to recruit the night’s biggest names. His sometimes-meandering commentary doesn’t make the gala any easier to sit through, regressing from being entertaining in the night’s first few hours to just seeming exhausting towards the end.

Fans of the iconic funk group The Time were in for a surprise, with Morris Day, Jerome Benton, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam and other members of the seminal Minneapolis group taking the stage to honor Avant, known as the “Godfather Of Black Music.”

Avant’s tributes also included a speech by Quincy Jones and a short documentary featuring kind words from personalities ranging from Snoop Dogg to Barack Obama and Kamala Harris.

The Queen of Soul deserved better Saturday night than the string of incohesive performances that were supposed to represent her legacy. The fault lies squarely on the shoulders of the gala’s organizers, who inexplicably split the tribute up into three separate sets and scheduled them for the very end of the show, giving Davis plenty of time to talk in between each segment.

As a result, the considerably-strong performances from the three acts tapped for the tributes – Jazmine Sullivan and Rob Thomas, Ledici and Chloe x Halle – never could gain any momentum, with the already-tired crowd streaming out of the ballroom in between, and well into, each set. Chloe x Halle got the worst treatment, soldiering through the night’s final performance as audience members ran from their seats to their Ubers, delivering what may have been the strongest performance of all the Aretha singers.

Perhaps the gala would’ve had more buzzy moments, particularly when it came to younger artists and more contemporary genres, had it boasted the guest list of the Roc Nation brunch party held earlier Saturday.

Beyonce, Jay-Z, DJ Khaled, Usher, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Normani and Khalid were among the many stars who attended the Roc Nation event but were not spotted at the Clive Davis party, though Robin Thicke was seen at both.

Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao

The Blaugrana are six points clear in the Spanish top flight, though they will only have a three- or a five-point lead by the time they kick off, depending on the result in Atletico Madrid’s home match with Real Madrid.

Should Atleti fail to win, a victory for Barcelona will see them increase their lead over the division.

As for Athletic, they are only three points clear of the drop despite being 12th, so they could do with accumulating points quickly to ensure they are not sucked into a relegation battle.

Date: Sunday, February 10

Time: 7:45 p.m. GMT/2:45 p.m. ET

TV: BeIN Sports (U.S.)

Live Stream:  Eleven Sports (UK), BeIN Sports Connect (U.S.)

Odds: Athletic (15-4), Draw (13-5), Barcelona (3-4)

Barcelona were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Valencia in their most recent league outing before tying 1-1 in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final with Real Madrid, so they will be eager to get back to winning ways on Sunday.

Lionel Messi—who came off the bench against Los Blancos—may well return to the starting lineup, which will naturally be an enormous boost for the Blaugrana.

Whether their talisman plays or not, Barcelona could do with an improved performance from Philippe Coutinho.

Following news of an injury to Arthur, football journalist Rik Sharma noted the opportunity it may present to Coutinho:

The former Liverpool man has struggled for form of late, and he failed to impress against Real, per the Evening Standard‘s Ben Hayward:

Given Barcelona made him the third-most expensive player of all time when they signed him in January 2018, they need him to be positively and decisively influencing matches week after week.

Athletic have only lost twice at home in La Liga this season and held Barca to a draw when they met at the Camp Nou in September, so Sunday’s match won’t be easy if their biggest players don’t step up.

Barcelona have only shipped eight goals away from home this season, so it’s likely they will get something from the game, but they could use all three points.

Man City vs Chelsea LIVE
Premier League 2018-19
Venue: Etihad Stadium
Kick-off: 4pm GMT, today

Manchester City face their third Premier League title test in a gruelling week as the champions host Chelsea this afternoon.

Man City leapfrogged Liverpool into first place in the table on goal difference with wins over Arsenal (3-1) on Sunday and Everton (2-0) on Wednesday, though Jurgen Klopp’s side went back on top by beating Bournemouth at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola knows that City will end the weekend above Liverpool with a win over Chelsea, but Maurizio Sarri’s Blues – who are fighting for a top-four finish – will be confident of causing problems with Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard in form.

Welcome to Standard Sport’s Man City vs Chelsea LIVE coverage!

Man City vs Chelsea predicted line-ups and team news

Man City (4-1-2-3): Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Fernandinho, Silva, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

Chelsea (4-3-3): Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Hazard, Willian, Higuain

Gonzalo Higuain will be looking to build on his goalscoring start to life at Chelsea when he leads the line today.

The Argentine scored twice in the win over Huddersfield last weekend, and his arrival at Stamford Bridge has unsurprisingly seen Maurizio Sarri ditch his false nine system, with Eden Hazard reverting to his favoured wing position.

Antonio Rudiger sat out the Huddersfield win but is expected to return alongside David Luiz, who scored in the reverse fixture, a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

The clash is a dress rehearsal for the EFL Cup final, which takes place in two weeks’ time, and Chelsea will be wary of avoiding the same fate suffered by fellow top four rivals Arsenal last weekend.

Sergio Aguero struck a hat-trick in a 3-1 win, and will likely start again here, despite Gabriel Jesus’ goalscoring cameo at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

Aymeric Laporte also scored in that game, and could deputise at left back again as Benjamin Mendy continues his prolonged return from injury, while Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne should return after starting from the bench against Everton.

Score prediction: Man City 2-1 Chelsea

Man City will feel the weight of expectation to get another big result in a tough week, but Guardiola can rotate his attack this weekend.

City are formidable at home and will set a Premier League record if they score twice – the 15th time in a row they would have done so.

Chelsea took Huddersfield apart 5-0 last weekend with Higuain and Hazard starring, but their previous result – a 4-0 loss at Bournemouth – means there is no telling what sort of performance the Blues will turn in at the Etihad.

Sarri has had more time to prepare than Guardiola, so Chelsea should at the very least be tighter in defence on the road this time around – but City will likely edge this game.

TV channel and live stream, and online coverage

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports’ Premier League and Main Event channels, and is available via Now TV with a day pass on offer for £7.99. Sky Sports subscribers can stream the match online via SkyGo and the SkyGo app.

You can follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog.

Head to Head history (h2h) and results

The two sides have faced each other 43 times in the Premier League: Chelsea dominate with 25 wins to City’s 11, with seven draws.

Guardiola has lost three League games against Chelsea – more than any other in his managerial career – making the Blues his bogey team, with a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in December hitting his side’s title hopes.

England vs France in the 2019 Six Nations, aka Le Crunch. There’s never any love lost between these two teams and Eddie Jones’ men will be on a high after thumping Ireland in Dublin on the opening weekend.

The match takes place on Sunday February 10, at Twickenham. Ie today. What time is kick-off? It starts at 3pm. For full Six Nations fixtures ahead of Sunday’s kick-off, read our handy guide.

You can watch the game on ITV. You can also follow our live blog on the day for latest score updates and team news.

England have sprung a surprise by naming Chris Ashton in place of Jack Nowell for Sunday’s Guinness Six Nations clash with France at Twickenham.

Nowell impressed through his work-rate and carrying in the 32-20 victory over Ireland but has lost his spot on the right wing to Ashton, who makes his first Championship start since 2013.

Ashton is well known to France’s players after spending a season at Toulon in which he set a new Top 14 try-scoring record of 24 touch downs in 23 appearances before joining Sale last summer.

“We have gone for Chris Ashton on the wing because we think he might sneak us a try early in the game,” head coach Eddie Jones said.

“We’ve just got a gut feeling he’ll be right for the start and Jack will be right for the end.

“Jack was absolutely outstanding for us against Ireland, absolutely outstanding, so it’s just a different role for him this time.

“He’s got a great work-rate and can fill a number of positions. At the end of the game that work-rate is going to be important.”

The second change to the starting XV sees Courtney Lawes partner George Kruis at lock after Maro Itoje was struck down by a knee injury in Dublin. Filling the vacancy on the bench created by Lawes’ promotion is Joe Launchbury.

Mathieu Bastareaud has been named in France’s starting line-up for their Six Nations clash against England at Twickenham on Sunday, in an acknowledgement that they will need power in the centre.

Head coach Jacques Brunel on Friday made six changes to the team who threw away a 16-0 halftime lead in a 24-19 defeat to Wales in the championship’s curtain-raiser last Friday, with Bastareaud pushing the lighter Romain Ntamack to the bench.

The Toulon powerhouse, who did not feature in the squad against Wales, will start alongside Geoffrey Doumayrou, who replaces the injured Wesley Fofana.

“We know the impact he can have against the power of the England centres, notably Manu Tuilagi,” said Brunel, who dismissed suggestions that he was changing his overall strategy.

“We have three players injured. Nothing serious, but they needed eight days of rest and we didn’t want to take any risks,” he explained.

“We still want to put speed in our game. We managed to do it in the first half last week. It remains our main goal.”

With Maxime Medard injured, Yoann Huget, whose mistake led to Wales’s second try at the Stade de France, moved down to fullback, leaving the wing position to Gael Fickou.

Huget was preferred to the 23-year-old Thomas Ramos as Brunel believes France will also need experience against England: “We didn’t want to expose him early in the game as we know it’s going to be a bit complicated.”

Brunel also reshuffled his pack.

Demba Bamba will start at tight-head prop after Uini Atonio suffered a knee injury while flanker Yacouba Camara took over from Wenceslas Lauret and lock Felix Lambey replaced Paul Willemse.

Scrumhalf Morgan Parra and flyhalf Camille Lopez will start together again while scrumhalf Antoine Dupont will take Baptiste Serin’s place on the bench.

“We have gone for Chris Ashton on the wing because we think he might sneak us a try early in the game,” he said.

“We’ve just got a gut feeling he’ll be right for the start and Jack will be right for the end.

“Jack was absolutely outstanding for us against Ireland, absolutely outstanding, so it’s just a different role for him this time.

“He’s got a great work-rate and can fill a number of positions. At the end of the game that work-rate is going to be important.”

France were victors in Paris, 22-16. Eddie Jones’ men needed to beat Les Bleus and score four tries to keep the Championship alive, but they came nowhere close in a largely toothless display.

A game poised 9-9 at half-time was blown open when Anthony Watson’s high tackle on Benjamin Fall saw the England full-back sent to the sin-bin for 10 minutes and a penalty try awarded.

Jonny May’s late touchdown gave the visitors hope of an unlikely win, but France held out against an England onslaught at the death.

Manchester City welcome Chelsea to the Etihad this afternoon looking to keep the pressure on Premier League title rivals Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won back-to-back top-flight games while the Reds have had to settle for draws with Leicester and West Ham.

Sergio Aguero and Man City will be looking to see off Chelsea today

Chelsea were beaten 4-0 last time out on the road at Bournemouth, but took their frustration out on bottom-club Huddersfield last weekend, hitting five past the Terriers.

The Blues beat City in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge in December and are in need of another big performance as they look to keep their top-four hopes on track.

What time is kick-off?

The massive clash is set for Sunday, February 10 and will kick-off at 4pm.

When the sides met at the Bridge earlier this season, David Luiz and N’Golo Kante scored in a 2-0 win for Chelsea.

What is the team news?

City will be without Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany for the visit of Chelsea.

Mendy is still struggling to overcome a knee injury despite making his comeback in City’s recent Carabao Cup win at Burton.

Kompany is out with muscle problem while Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger could return to Chelsea’s starting at the Etihad.

Rudiger was not risked in last week’s win over Huddersfield due to a knock, so Andreas Christensen deputised. The Denmark defender is likely to make way.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been ill, so may not even be among the substitutes.

Tottenham have ground out late League victories against Fulham, Watford and Newcastle to stay in contention, and another win on Sunday would set Spurs up for a potentially spectacular run-in with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli on the comeback trail.

Tottenham will still be without Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Kane (ankle) is progressing well but the earliest he could return is the trip to Burnley on February 23, while Alli (hamstring) is also out.

Ben Davies (groin) remains sidelined with Eric Dier (virus) and Vincent Janssen (knee) absent. “[Kane] is nearly ready to play, but we need to be realistic too,” said Pochettino. “I think he’s so close to come back again, not for Sunday and not for Wednesday, but we’ll see after.”

Meanwhile, Leicester winger Marc Albrighton is likely to miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. Albrighton suffered the problem in training before last weekend’s defeat to Manchester United and needs surgery.

Daniel Amartey remains out ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham with a broken ankle but is stepping up his recovery after being out since October.

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose, Sissoko, Winks, Dier, Eriksen, Son, Lucas Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Mendy, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans, Barnes, Vardy

Score prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Leicester Spurs have shown real grit of late to get over the line late on in games, and Pochettino will expect more of the same against a Leicester side who have lost three of their last four League games to leave Claude Puel under pressure.

The Foxes will hope to sit deep, soak up pressure and break on the counter – a tactic Spurs have struggled with of late – but the hosts should have enough to see off the visitors at Wembley.
