The Grammys were held on Sunday night, February 10, 2019, and were hosted this time around by 15-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Alicia Keys, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with the live broadcast on CBS.
Below are some of the highlights and clips from the broadcast of The 61th Annual Grammy Awards, along with the full list of Grammy winners at the end.
Having Keys host this year was a major change in tone from the previous two years, which were led by comedian and late-night talk-show host James Corden. Instead of comedy throughout, Keys focused on highlighting the talent and careers of the presenters, nominees, winners, and performers.

A Star Is Born is the tragic love story that could be told in a number of different ways. Which is probably why there are different variations since the story was first told in 1937. While the underlying message has been constant, every generation has gotten to see this story be told. But with Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, this version, starring him and Lady Gaga, could be the most profound retelling, yet. The film could have easily fallen into the trap of simply just telling the story of a narcissistic musician falling for a nightclub singer whose talents not only bring out the best in him but also overshadows him when the entertainment world chooses her over him, but it doesn’t.
Here we have something truly special as we hang on every word, note, and lyric that comes out of Cooper and Lady Gaga. At the same time, the film shows how their internal demons can be a dangerous and destructive force. My full review of A Star Is Born is below.
An official trailer for the latest remake of A Star is Born has been released by Warner Bros. Pictures.
The movie is directed by Bradley Cooper, who also stars alongside Lady Gaga and wrote the screenplay with Eric Roth and Will Fetters. Also starring is Dave Chappelle, Andrew Dice Clay, Bonnie Somerville, Anthony Ramos, and Sam Elliott.

Here’s my usual official Grammys warning: I hate country music, I strongly dislike pop music, and I mostly have no idea about new music that’s not hard rock or heavy metal. I can, though, be objective when talking about a performance when it happens to be really good. With that, when I say I’m writing about the “highlights,” well, it’s the highlights according to me, a metalhead who watched the Grammys, a show that doesn’t even bother to televise the Heavy Metal category. With all of the deaths in the music world in 2016, I was sure that there’d be a lot of tributes, and I was intrigued by the tease of the Metallica and Lady Gaga team-up. Turns out, this year was mostly a snooze-fest, but there were some energetic performances that made up for everything else.
