The hosts for this event was Alicia Keys. This was the second year she was hosting the Grammy Awards.

She has previously scoped 15 of the awards herself putting her in a better position to handle the event competently.

Who was performing at the Grammys?

Though there were some possible changes, and the tunes they are tuning are not yet announced, we expect performances from Aerosmith who four awards already.

Billie Eilish who is having six nominations, the Voice” super couple Blake Shelton with eight nominations, Lizzo who has already scooped eight nominations, and Gwen Stefani with one award.

Who are the 62nd annual Grammy Awards nominees and winners?

As mentioned, Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X take a leading position in nomination for Grammy Awards.

Along with Bon Iver, Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey, H.E.R. and Vampire Weekend, they are all eyeing the album of the year.

Notably, Nas X and Lizzo are up for the Best New Artist together with other upcoming champions, such as Spanish flamenco pop fusion sensation Rosalía.

Difference between Record and Song of the Year

Song of the year refers to the songwriter’s award whereby the artist receives an award if he wrote the song.

On the other hand, the record of the Year goes to the artist and producers, the engineers who performed the recording work, mixing and mastering engineers.

Song of the Year is a songwriters’ award; if the artist did not write the song, it does not go to them.

Who was going to win?

Honestly, we can’t tell until the winners are announced. But as per the past events, we already know that Lizzo and Eilish have made splashes previously.

Also, we know that Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” set a record for spending 17 weeks at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.

Although the charts don’t necessarily represent the list of winners for Grammy awards 2020, we are apparently not seeing these names the last time.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the show with your friends and fans.
