Surprising Country Music Snubs At This Year's Grammy Awards


The 60th Grammys take place at New York's Madison Square Garden on Sunday (26.01.18), with the United Kingdom premiere broadcast exclusively and in full on 4Music at 7 pm, January 29, as well as on the Box Plus App. To keep you in the know, we have the rundown on what you can expect from this year's show and all the nominees vying for those golden gramophone trophies.

Landing a performance slot on the Grammy Awards is a big, big deal for things like goosing album sales, streams and sales of concert tickets.

Late-night host and Carpool Karaoke superstar James Corden is hosting the Grammys again this year, after a successful first run in 2017.

"Everything just costs more to do in NY versus Los Angeles, in terms of facilities, stagehands, hotel rooms, transportation, general expenses of the show - all of which we account for, but it's just a different animal", Ehrlich added. And winning the award for Best R&B Song seems like a good way to reward Gambino's soulful voyage into R&B. Adele's "Hello", Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" and Sam Smith's "Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)" all deal with the emotional highs and lows of love and are still considered some of the best ballads in recent years.

The Recording Academy finally embraced rap and hip-hop in the marquee categories this year, giving several major nods each to rappers Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino.

In addition to vibrant performances and a glamorous red carpet, the award show ceremony may also reflect the somber attitude Hollywood has faced since the beginning of the "Weinstein effect" and the "Me Too" movement.

The 2017 Grammy Awards brought us some wonderful and weird and downright awkward moments, from Adele's emotional performance to this uh, interesting fashion choice. The Grammys present awards in 84 categories, not including special awards, so there are plenty of opportunities to honor artists in a variety of genres.

Grammy Awards is facing $6-8 million shortfall for its first show in NY in 15 years, say officials.

What's the difference between Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year?

Song of the Year: "1-800-273-8255" - Logic ft.

If you're gearing up for the Grammys this Sunday night, you aren't alone.
