Lady Gaga, Drake, Kacey Musgraves, Childish Gambino and Dua Lipa won the Grammy 2019 in key categories.
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on February 10, 2019, at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys hosted. The ceremony will recognize the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year.
This is Gaga’s time to shine. The singer is being honored across the world for her achievements in singing, songwriting, and performing, and there’s honestly no one better deserving. She won the Grammy for ‘Best Song Written For Visual Media’ and ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’. She also won Best pop duo/group performance for “Shallow” with Bradley Cooper.
Wearing a sparkling, plunging catsuit and matching platform boots and eye makeup and holding a matching mic, the pop star rocked the 2019 Grammys with a sizzling performance of her breakout song from Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born.
Drake swerved on all the reports that he wasn’t coming and made a surprise appearance at the Grammys to accept his ‘Best Rap Song’ trophy for “God’s Plan”.
While waving the Grammy around and tapping it to make sure it was real, Drake said, “Man, it’s like the first time in Grammy’s history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second.”
The singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves took home all four Grammys she got nominated for this year, making her one of the night’s biggest winners. Kacey Musgraves won ‘Album Of The Year’ for Golden Hour at the 61st GRAMMY Awards.
