"Shallow" was up against fellow Oscar hopeful "All the Stars" from Black Panther, "Mystery of Love" from Call Me By Your Name, "Remember Me" from Coco and last year's Oscar victor "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman.

Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy victor, will host this year's broadcast.

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m. In addition to other general field categories, Glover, Drake and Lamar all earned record of the year nominations for This Is America, God's Plan and All the Stars, respectively. Because yes, the red carpet is just as big of a deal as the show itself. H.E.R.is also one of six women nominated for best new artist (out of eight total), along with Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. Emily Lazar, one of the engineers who worked on the album and won alongside Beck, said onstage that she was the first female mastering engineer to win in the latter category. The event also highlighted her organization Fem the Future, which empowers women in music to take on roles as engineers, producers, music video directors and more.

The lead-up to this year's Grammys has not been completely smooth, though.

"I don't think you can say anyone is a front-runner", said Melinda Newman, West Coast editor of Billboard magazine.

Untouchable pop star Ariana Grande - who dropped her highly anticipated album Thank U, Next just before the Grammys - slammed producer Ken Ehrlich over her decision not to perform, suggested he was "lying" about her readiness. He later acknowledged that it was a "poor choice of words", and it forced the academy to launch a new task force focused on inclusion and diversity.

"It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued. Kendrick Lamar leads with eight nominations, followed by Drake with seven and Brandi Carlile with six.

Drama has also surrounded the Grammys around its Motown Records tribute: Some people complained when a promo aired on CBS showing Jennifer Lopez as the act set to honor the legendary record label, which launched the careers of Jackson 5, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and more. Fans of breaking their nose in a mosh pit might be pleased to learn that Travis Scott took her place, who will be headlining alongside Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson.

Viewers may also be paying close attention to the number of female winners, as past year the show made headlines when Alessia Cara was the only woman to nab a solo Grammy.
