Hosted by Alicia Keys, the 2019 Grammys honor the best the music industry has to offer, and Sunday’s ceremony features eight contenders instead of five in the four top categories: album, record and song of the year, plus best new artist.
The Premiere Ceremony is underway, and primetime honors start at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
4:18 p.m.: Tori Kelly wins her second Grammy of the afternoon for best gospel album for “Hiding Place,” thanking Kirk Franklin for the win. “He took me under his wing and saw the passion I had for gospel and the Lord. … Kirk, I love you so much,” she said. “I’m sharing this with you.”
4:13 p.m.: The Roots’ Questlove, the premiere ceremony’s next presenter, awards the best gospel performance trophy to Kirk Franklin and Tori Kelly. “I dreamed about this since I was a kid; this is kind of insane,” Kelly tells the crowd. “I just love gospel music so much … and I have to thank Jesus, thank you for everything.”
4:02 p.m.: Beck wins his second award this year, for engineered album, non-classical, for “Colors.” As his production team takes the stage, one of the winning producers, Emily Lazar, announces that her win marks the first time a woman took home an award in this category.
3:57 p.m.: Weird Al Yankovic wins the boxed or special limited edition package category for his “Squeeze Box” compilation, taking the stage and joking to the crowd, “I kind of have been playing the long game. I never really wanted to be a recording artist. (I’ve been doing this) for 46 years, so one day I could win a Grammy for being an art director.”
3:47 p.m.: Beck claims the best alternative music album category, marking his sixth career Grammys win, his first since winning album of the year for his “Morning Phase” album at the 2015 awards.
3:46 p.m.: “The Band’s Visit,” 2018’s Emmy-winning best musical, continues its storied run by taking home the prize for best musical theater album.
3:45 p.m.: The first of the day’s awards, best comedy album, goes to “Equanimity and the Bird Revelation” by Dave Chappelle, who is not in attendance to accept his prize.
3:40 p.m.: The Grammys’ Premiere Ceremony pre-awards kicked off with Recording Academy chair John Poppo introducing Shaggy, the pre-awards host, who is also nominated in the best reggae album category. Amusingly, instead of just rattling off the rules of the pre-show — like keeping speeches to 45 seconds or less — Shaggy chose to sing them instead over a reggae beat, reminding the afternoon’s future winners, “Don’t sit like you ain’t got a clue / Get up here and collect what’s due.”
