Another year, another award season, another evening of the list. The biggest evening of Music comes back with the 63th annual Grammy Awards on 26 January, and it forms a battle of some of the most memorable entertainment zone of the past year, from TIME’s Entertainer of the Year Lizzo to Antiwonderwind and The upcoming James Bond theme singer Billie Eilish te pioneering graph supernova Lil Nas X.
It is also a turbulent time for the Recording Academy, from which President and CEO, Deborah Dugan, was removed less than two weeks before the ceremony. Variety reports that the academy released an official statement in which “a formal allegation of misconduct is called” against Dugan, while Intrakrmpers said to the website that her removal had a ‘ coup ‘. Dugan, who took over in August, was the first woman to hold the post and had a good idea to take concrete steps to increase female membership and representation.
It has yet to be seen whether this internal conflict will bubble up to the surface and have any impact on the ceremony; Whatever happens to the app Mys, the Recording Academy has a long way to address these and other issues.
Here’s what you need to know about the app Mys of 2020:
When does the app list?
The app Mys for 2020 will take place on Sunday, 26 January in Los Angeles’s Staples Center. The direct awards will be presented to 20:00 ET/17:00 PT on CBS. (As with other awards exhibitions, the majority of the awards are not actually broadcast; According to most viewers, the broadcasts are long enough as it is.)
How can I watch or stream this year’s show?
Viewers with cable can look live on CBS. Wireless cutters with a CBS-access for all access can stream the show via the online package of the channel. (It has a small monthly fee, but the first week is free, in the event that prospective users want to try it for the app list.)
Other packages such as YouTubeTV and Hulu + Live TV will stream the app list live for subscribers. Or you can just follow on Twitter, which will undoubtedly come quickly to discover all the highlights and best memes of the evening.
Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Aerosmith, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were announced on the schedule for performances during the evening for the first time. (Lizzo, Eilish and Grande are the best nominees this year and will be guaranteed that they will bring huge production value to the stage if their performances in the past are an indication.)
Add to it Camila Cabello, Spain’s Rosalía, Bonnie Raitt, the Jonas Brothers, Tyler, the creator, HER and Charlie Wilson. And Demi Lovato will also start a return with her first solo performance in the broadcast, which is followed by the anthem in the Super Bowl the following week.

Who is host?
Alicia Keys return as host after her turn into the spotlight last year. Keys are a Grammy-regularity, which in the course of her career has conquered 15 awards. Last year she was warmly judged about her presentation style, which brought women like Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga on stage and displayed her piano skills.
The message deals with the ‘ uniting power of Music ‘, as Obama said. This makes Keys only the third woman who offers the box list more than once, following the twofold Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O’Donnell. She is the fifth woman in the Grammy history.
What’s going on with the best new artist?
There are eight performances for the best Trophy for new artists: Black Pumas, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Maggie Rogers, Rosalía, Tank and the Bangas and Yola. Thanks to their general attraction on awards, Lizzo, Eilish, and Lil Nas are like favourites. But the others are worth going to: The Black Pumas is a talented neo-soul duo of Austin.
Rogers got her pop-debut Heard It In a Past Life early In January, to great reviews and very popular support. The talented Rosalía is Spain’s flamenco pop-superster, with crossover hits in other genres such as J Balvin and James Blake. Tank and the Bangas are not completely new; The Louisiana Funk – soul group has existed since 2013 and places a new album in 2019, making music that mixes personality with fresh rhythm. And Yola is a rooky British singer who was embraced by Nashville.
Was there a big incident?
Taylor Swift’s Lover did not get much love this year; She received her fourth nomination for Song of the Year, but has not yet won the award in the past.
And while one song of the A Star has been recognized Born-soundtrack, the rest of the album has disappeared from the competition-a surprise, given the praise of ‘ Shallow ‘ and the high profile of the team that worked on the soundtrack as a whole. Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, Bruce Springstone and Maren Morris also occurred shortly despite the fact that they had received a lot of attention earlier this year.
Who is expected to win?
With eight nominations, Lizzo had the figures on her side. (There are once again a few shadows on her named song “Truth Hurts ” Thrown due to legitimate questions about the origin of its lyrics.) Eilish can also be a good Evening with her debut album and hit songs that have fresh face for pop. Both these getaway stars are in the four main categories, which make them beat the names.
Any possible upset Grammy?
Beyoncé has a few nominations for her work on the soundtrack of the Lion King film. But the more ubiquitous options (Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish) will probably be overshadowed.
It would not be a big surprise if the Norman F-cking Rockwell of Lana Del Rey gets serious Grammy attention in this category Album of the Year – it is a critical favourite – even though Eilish the more probable winner based on nominations alone.
And then there is Lil Nas X and ‘ Old Town Road ‘, the genre that traverse the genre that sounds summer. Only time will notice whether the mass appeal means it to Grammy approval.
But will Rihanna be there?
Probably not. It is four years ago that Rihanna, former queen of the pop-charts, released her award-winning album. And although his fans had promised that there would be more music in 2019, nothing realized. It will be a surprise to see her in the mixture again while she is busy concentrating on her fashion and makeup-rich.
What about dragons? Justin Bieber? Ed Sheeran?
Dragons accepts the Best Rap Song Award for ‘ God’s Plan ‘ onstage during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 10, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Dragons have a few nominations (mostly in a writing, this year), but he was traditionally a wild map, which appeared last year and used his speech to put the app list and the concept of awards to beat themselves. Meanwhile, Bieber promotes his new single cut “Yummy” aggressively before a comeback of the spring album – so he might show up to arrive, though only to keep the press’s attention. Then there is a streaming juggernaut Sheeran, nominated for the work (its No. 6-collaborative project), but he has a advertising pattern.
Where is BTS?
The seven artists of the K-pop-supergroup BTS broke the internet practically when they handed out an award on the stage on the K ice list in 2019. But now they are busy preparing for the release of their next album, Map of the Soul, in February: 7 – so it is unlikely that they will have the time to fly around the world for the show.
