Chances are you will not see Childish Gambino, Drake, or Kendrick Lamar take centre stage at Sunday's Grammys.

As for the awards, Lamar leads this year's nominations with a total of eight nods, including album of the year for the "Black Panther" soundtrack followed closely by Drake who scored seven nominations. Critics may carp about the Grammy Awards themselves going to bland, middle-of-the-road acts instead of trailblazers, but Grammy red carpet fashion is usually wilder and more fun to gawk at then the self-consciously chic finery stars sport to the Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmys and more.

The 2019 Grammys is only days away, and so far, the moments leading up to music's biggest night have been filled with drama. "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", Grande tweeted following an Associated Press interview where Erhlich said that she "felt it was too late for her to pull something together". She responded on Twitter and said she "can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken". "I relax more ... when I know that I am supported by other women ... and I feel like I can do anything". It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend. A live stream of the show is also available to CBS All Access subscribers.

Alicia Keys (The Voice), who is a 15-time victor and 29-time nominee, takes over as host for the 2019 Grammys show at STAPLES Center. Even Grammy darling Taylor Swift, whose Reputation is only nominated for best pop vocal album, likely will miss the ceremony because she's in London filming Cats, the flawless icing on this big, dumb cake.

The performances: The Grammys will feature a bevy of musical performances, including an opening number featuring Camila Cabello alongside Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug and J Balvin.

The 2019 Grammy Awards take place this Sunday, February 10th, and exclusive broadcasting rights for the music awards show in Canada goes to Rogers Media, which will be airing the Grammys on Citytv.

Sunday's show will include tributes to Diana Ross, to mark her 75th birthday in March, and to Aretha Franklin, who died last August. The 8-time Grammy victor will herself take to the stage for a special performance.

While Swift is away filming in London, Grande won't be attending or performing after a disagreement with the show's producer Ken Ehrlich.

Cardi B., Brandi Carlile, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Post Malone will also compete for Album of the Year, alongside H.E.R., Kacey Musgraves and Janelle Monáe.
