2019 Grammys: Here Are All The Winners

By Cole Delbyck
Black Voices

After a brief and Bruno Mars-heavy sojourn in New York City, music’s biggest night returned to Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Sunday for the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Hosted by 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys, taking the reins from late-night host James Corden, the awards show has taken steps to diversify the nominees over the past year with women taking center stage at the ceremony.

This year 15 female artists were nominated across the four major categories ― Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist ― which have expanded to create “more opportunities for a wider-range of recognition.”

Rapper Cardi B’s smash debut “Invasion of Privacy,” Brandi Carlile’s “By the Way, I Forgive You,” and H.E.R.’s self-titled album all picked up major awards ― the Bronx-born rapper even made history at the ceremony ― but it was Kacey Musgraves who walked away with the night’s top honor for her album “Golden Hour.“ The win is particularly striking given the backlash against Recording Academy president Neil Portnow who told reporters after last year’s male-dominated ceremony that women needed to “step up” in order to be recognized.

Singer Alessia Cara was the only woman to receive a solo Grammy Award at last year’s ceremony for Best New Artist.

Rappers Kendrick Lamar and Drake were frontrunners going into the evening with eight and seven nominations respectively, but Donald Glover reigned supreme, picking up trophies for Record Of The Year and Song of the Year.

As always, the Grammy Awards are only as good as its talent and this year some of the biggest names in music took the stage, including Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus and Diana Ross, who celebrated her 75th birthday with a special performance.

Pop stars Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande weren’t in attendance. Grande had a particularly public falling out with Grammys producers days before the ceremony, but she took home the award for Best Pop Vocal album anyway.
