  • Grammy Awards 2019 FAQ: How to live-stream the show, where to watch on TV

Lady Gaga loves to call out President Donald Trump whenever she can, and did not waste an opportunity during the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday while she performed "Shallow" from A Star Is Born. "I'm in tears with honor and gratitude", she wrote on Twitter after her first win.

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards telecast will be available to stream live across digital platforms on CBS All Access, the network's streaming site.

At almost the two-hour point of the show, country duo Dan + Shay seemed ebullient when they announced Drake's name as victor for best rap song.

Also on Sunday, Gaga won Best Pop Solo Performance for "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?)".

This year, 5 of the 8 Album of the Year nominations went to female artists: Cardi B, Carlile, Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and country star Kacey Musgraves.

Along with Best Alternative Album, Colors was also awarded with a Grammy for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. "I hope you do, dad".

Janelle Monae remembers being frustrated last year, but this year she is looking forward to the show, where women are now leading in nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.




Sunday night, Drizzy beat out colleagues Travis Scott ("SICKO MODE"), Jay Rock ("King's Dead" and "WIN"), and Eminem ("Lucky You") to take the trophy home for "God's Plan".

Women are hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them previous year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night.

"So if you see someone's that hurting, don't look away", she also said in her remarks.

Gaga, Carlile, Monae, Cardi B and Musgraves are all due to take the stage.

"Shallow" is still up in three other categories, including Record of the Year. "I support her and I support her decision", she added. "Bradley, I loved singing this song with you".

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. A study released by the University of Southern California's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative days before the ceremony found that of the 899 individuals who had been nominated for the previous six shows, 90.7 percent were men.
