Before this year's Grammys, Beck won five previous times, including his 2015 awards for Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase.

While last year's show was held in NY - for the first time since 2003 - the 61st Grammys are back in Los Angeles.

The award was accepted by his daughter, Rashida Jones, who said: "When he first saw the film he said, 'I wish I could live forever - and I think he could be the first person to do that. As much as it is about me, it's not just about me", said Monae, who gave a powerful speech a year ago ahead of Kesha's emotional and striking performance celebrating sisterhood and women's rights.

It's a far stretch from last year's Grammys, where Lorde was the only women nominated for album of the year and only two women won prizes during the live telecast. "This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future".

Florida Georgia Line frontman Tyler Hubbard shares a smile beside his stunning wife Hayley at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

When asked about the lack of women in the top categories at the 2018 Grammys, Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said women need to "step up". This marks yet another rough year for the Grammys. Despite being heavily advertised as part of the show, Grande is not performing nor even attending the Sunday ceremony, after she felt producers "insulted" her by asserting too much control over her song choices. Weeks later, the academy announced that it had hired Tina Tchen, a lawyer and Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, to head a new task force on inclusion and diversity.

On Thursday, Grande broke her silence and shot back at Ehrlich in a series of tweets.

Gaga, who is to perform later on Sunday, said on Twitter she was "in tears with honor and gratitude". "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.

Leading nominees Kendrick Lamar, who produced the "Black Panther" soundtrack, and Canadian rapper Drake's will also be absent in what is seen as a snub by the three rappers of an awards show that has often shut hip-hop artists out of its top prizes, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States.

Of course, there's one celeb who we're anxious to see.

The ceremony starts at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and will air on CBS. There will also be a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, who died last August.

Musgraves, also nominated for best country album, song and performance, said she's been trying to relax this week ahead of the show.
