Grammys to take social standpoints

Grammy Winners

The first month of 2018 ends with a bang, as New York City becomes the music capital of the world.

The 60th Grammy Awards on Sunday will bring some of the biggest names in music together at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The Odd Future architect continued the conversation by revealing why winning a Grammy would mean so much to him and his legion of fans.

Since that time she has won eight Grammy awards and a number of music accolades including 12 Billboard Music Awards, 12 American Music Awards (including the Icon Award) and six MTV Video Music Awards (including the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award). The show will be hosted by James Corden and held in Madison Square Garden in NY. Watch it online at Grammy.com starting at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT.

Who's hosting the main event?

Both Cardi B and Rapsody have a shot at becoming the first woman rap artist to win the award for best rap song in the category's entire history on Sunday night. The list includes some of our favorite Hollywood stars like actress Katie Holmes, actor Shemar Moore, and actress Anna Kendrick.

Most of those services also offer free trials, so that's an option, too, but you'll want to do not forget to cancel them once the show is done so you don't get charged. The Album of the Year contenders Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Bruno Mars and Childish Gambino make up the most minority nominees since 2005. SZA, Khalid, Childish Gambino, and No I.D. have an impressive five nods each.

Pictures show the Brooklyn rapper with a seat next to wife Beyonce, and near fellow New Yorker and collaborator Alicia Keys.

The ceremony takes place on 28 January at 19:30 EST in the United States (00:30 GMT in the UK).

Will there be any special acknowledgments?

When nominations were announced in November, Jay-Z led the field with 8 nominations (Beyoncé led nominations last year with 9), including Record of the Year ("The Story Of O.J."), Song of the Year ("4:44") and Album of the Year ("4:44").

From Neil Diamond to Miley Cyrus, here's a look at what to expect at the 2018 Grammy Awards.

No, you don't need cable to watch the Grammy Awards.

Will there be any surprises? It's worth celebrating and acknowledging the work of the 2018 Album of Year nominees, but the Grammys are still far from total inclusion of the many diverse creators in music. National Football League player Victor Cruz will also be presenting an award during the evening. Let us know through your comments.
