Their absence was seen as a snub of an awards show that has often shut hip-hop artists out of its top prizes, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States.

The seven members of the massively successful K-Pop boy band - RM, V, J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook, Jimin and Jin - posed for pictures while arriving at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

"Since its introduction in 1845, the annual Tiffany Blue Book Collection has served as a laboratory for Tiffany's most exquisite hand-crafted designs and we are thrilled to have an artist such as Lady Gaga wearing the collection", Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co.

Beck was a double victor during the pre-telecast, taking home best alternative music album and best engineered album (non-classical) for "Colours".

The early wins by women offered a positive sign that change may be afoot at the Recording Academy, which has faced intense backlash over its apparent struggle to embrace diversity.

This year, five of the eight Album of the Year nominations went to female artists: Cardi B, Carlile, Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and Musgraves. In 1989, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff boycotted the show after they learned that the presentation of the best rap performance award wouldn't be televised, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A thrilled Carlile beamed as she accepted three consecutive trophies. "Thank you for looking out for me, thank you for my family at home, I love you", she said as she struggled to hold back tears.

Mavericks trade F Barnes to Kings
The 23-year-old Jackson has played in 52 games with three starts for the Mavericks this season, averaging 6.7 points per game. This is the second reported move the Rockets have made before the 3 p.m.

"To be embraced by this enduring and loving community has been the dance of a lifetime".

"It was when my creativity & self-expression was stifled by you that i decided not to attend". We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night.

Even before the Grammy Awards ceremony started, Lady Gaga proved how great she is with two wins.

Cornell won for his haunting When Bad Does Good, beating a field that included the Arctic Monkeys and rising retro rockers Greta Van Fleet.

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 on stage.

The brazen comment drew outrage and prompted the executive, Neil Portnow, to say he would resign when his contract expires this summer. Lady Gaga hit the stage with Mark Ronson to perform a gorgeous rendition of "Shallow" from 'A Star Is Born.' Lady Gaga's vocals are just INSANE!

Childish Gambino also later won "Song of the Year" for "This Is America".
