Drake's "God's Plan" Wins Best Rap Song At GRAMMYs

LOS ANGELES CA- FEBRUARY 08 H.E.R. performs during Basic Magazine and H.E.R. Pre Grammy Party at the Private Residence of the CEO of Absolut Elyx

Rapper Childish Gambino's "This is America", about police brutality and racism, won the first big award - song of the year - as well as best music video, and best rap performance. 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.

As fans know all too well and are very proud, BTS was at the Grammys this year, not only to present an award but also because their Love Yourself: Tear album, and its art director, HuskyFox, got nominated for the Best Recording Package.

The lead-up to this year's Grammys has not been completely smooth, though.

"I'm not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight", she tweeted.

Fifteen-time Grammy Award victor Alicia Keys will host the ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as nominees wait to find out who will take home the win for popular awards like record of the year and album of the year.

Several big stars are not attending the Grammys, including Grande, Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards.

Twitter Shares Tank Despite Big Revenue and Profit Gains
Shares moved lower in the premarket as the company's first-quarter revenue outlook is lower than Wall Street forecasts. That's the logic behind Twitter's decision to switch to a new metric - "mDAU" or "Monetizable Daily Active Users".

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m.

Gaga told the crowd: "They said I was weird, that my look, that my choices, that my sound wouldn't work".

After mentioning that he definitely did not think he would win the award for "God's Plan", Drake said he wanted to take a moment to talk directly to the kids who want to become musicians and his peers.

To help combat the Grammys' much-discussed diversity problem, the Recording Academy expanded the major categories to eight nominees each - so now that the field is wider than ever, expect some upsets.

Cuban-born Camila Cabello kicked off the televised show with a dance heavy performance of her hit single "Havana" with Latin artists J Balvin, Ricky Martin and Young Thug. Emily Lazar, one of the engineers who worked on the album and won alongside Beck, said onstage that she was the first female mastering engineer to win in the latter category.

The soundtrack was produced by Lamar and includes performances by Lamar, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, 2 Chainz and more. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.
