Everything You Need to Know About the 2018 Grammys

Everything You Need to Know About the 2018 Grammys

The Grammy Awards are set to take place on Sunday at Madison Square Garden in NY.

An eclectic all-star lineup of artists, musicians, actors, and comedians will take the stage as presenters at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards®. The night's biggest categories - album, song and record of the year - pit hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar against one another, their most formidable challengers being Bruno Mars, a Grammys-favored artist with the potential to run the board, and Despacito, 2017's biggest single, which already routed this year's Latin Grammys.

The James Corden-hosted Grammy Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in NY on Sunday, Jan. 28, at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Before the 60 installment of the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences' annual gala begins, here is a look back in photographs at some of the past shows.

Kesha is nominated for two Grammys: best pop vocal album ('Rainbow') and pop solo performance ('Praying').

This year's nominees for album of the year are Childish Gambino for Awaken, My Love!

But this year's Grammy nominations, which prominently acknowledge young artists of color like SZA, Khalid and Cardi B, represent, to some, an attempt to prove that the show can accurately reflect the diversity of the music industry.

JAY-Z is looking to add to his mantel of awards and trophies after this year's Grammys. I believe the victor of this category will be between Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN" and Jay-Z's "4:44" because both of these albums will be celebrated as classics, second only to the legendary status of K Dot and HOV. Solti holds 31 Grammys and also holds the record for the most wins in the classical field.

Rap is now officially the biggest music genre in the United States after surpassing rock in 2017, but the odds are historically stacked against a hip-hop artist winning album of the year at the Grammys.

Despite his seven Grammy wins and 29 nominations, Lamar has a history of Grammys heartbreak.

Which act do you think will be country music's biggest victor at the 2018 Grammy Awards?

The asterisk (*) indicate artists who have received the Lifetime Achievement Award by The Recording Academy.

"From the time the 45th GRAMMY Awards ended in 2003, I was always thinking about when it would be good and appropriate for us to go back to NY, said Portnow".

"The reality is that it's a major undertaking in many respects", Portnow told Billboard.

1989 DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (aka Will Smith) win the first-ever rap Grammy for "Parents Just Don't Understand". She last won a Grammy in 2012 for Best Bluegrass Album for Paper Airplane.
