TIME FOR STARS TO SHINE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

CAN a Pulitzer Prize win­ner trump an Os­car awards favourite? That’s just one of the key bat­tles set to play out at this year’s Grammy awards and shows the in­flu­ence and reach of the cur­rent crop of mu­si­cians to be given a nod for their artis­tic tal­ents. Ken­drick La­mar (above), who scored the mu­sic Pulitzer for his 2018 al­bum, Damn, leads the field of Grammy nom­i­na­tions, with eight nods in­clud­ing his Black­Pan­ther hit, Al­lThe Stars. He’ll go head-to-head with Lady Gaga (and six other artists), in the song of the year cat­e­gory with her movie anthem, Shal­low from AS­tarIsBorn, awards, when he thought Bey­oncé should have beaten Tay­lor Swift to the tro­phy? Depend­ing on his mood, or the moon, who can tell? Keep­ing it classy, Ali­cia Keys will host to­day’s cer­e­mony (re­plac­ing two-time host James Cor­den), live from LA’s Sta­ples Cen­tre, with Camila Ca­bello, Cardi B, Shawn Men­des and Janelle Monae head­lin­ing the per­for­mance bill. Ex­pected to bring their ex­per­tise to the red car­pet will be ruby rug reg­u­lars, Keith Ur­ban (who is nom­i­nated for best solo coun­try per­for­mance for Par­al­lelLines) and wife, Ni­cole Kid­man.
