Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Alicia Keys, oh my!

Gaga won best song written for visual media for "Shallow", sharing the honor with co-writers Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando. It went on to win a Golden Globe at this year's show and is the favorite heading into the Oscars on February 24. It was also honored at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards and the Satellite Awards.

Brandi Carlile, the folk singer nominated for six Grammys including album, song and record of the year, looked to Monae and said: "Girl, I would vote you into presidency".

Along with Wilson, this year's presenters include current Grammy nominees Kelsea Ballerini, Leon Bridges and Luke Combs; Grammy winners Alessia Cara, Julian Edelman, Eve, John Mayer, Bob Newhart, Smokey Robinson, Swizz Beatz and Meghan Trainor; recording artist Kane Brown; South Korean pop sensation BTS; past Grammy nominee Cedric The Entertainer; and actors Nina Dobrev, Anna Kendrick, Jada Pinkett Smith and Wilmer Valderrama. Beck's other win for Best Alternative Album was his 1996 album Odelay.

She has two nominations for best pop solo performance for her live performance of "Havana" and best pop vocal album. Christian singer Lauren Daigle also won Grammys.

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS television starting at 8 pm ET.

Keys told CBS news this year´s greater representation from women was "far overdue".




Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated at last year's Grammy Awards, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the night's top award, Lorde, didn't get a chance to perform onstage.

Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino - nominees in all or most of the big three categories - also opted out of performing; however, representatives for the artists have not confirmed if they will attend the show.

"This is going to be a special Grammys".

Women are also hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them past year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night. "This is a moment for women to love on each other and let each other know", she added.

The music world will hit the red carpet on Sunday for the Grammys, with a wider selection of nominees - led by hip-hop royalty and a bevy of talented women - up for the top prizes. Brandi Carlile reacts after winning Best Americana Album for "By The Way, I Forgive You".

Women also have a strong presence in song and record of the year, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai.
