Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga win multiple Grammys; Grande wins 1st

LIVE from the GRAMMYs red carpet in Los Angeles, host Tracy Moore chats with the night's biggest artists and nominees while music correspondent Devo Brown and fashion correspondent Lauren Howe break down the night's hottest tracks and looks.

"God's Plan" was also nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and Drake's Scorpion was nominated for Album of the Year.

BTS and their creative team being acknowledged by the Recording Academy for their visuals should come as no surprise to their dedicated fans; the group's meticulously plotted artistic narratives and imagery are often intertwined with the deeper meanings in their music. "Just knowing that so many women are nominated this year, looking back from last year to this year when I was on the stage at the Grammys, you could see that I was frustrated about the opportunities and about our visibility as women", said Monae, who gave powerful speech last year ahead of Kesha's emotional and striking performance celebrating sisterhood and women's rights.

Pop mega-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, suggesting he was "lying" about her readiness.

"His voice was his vision and his music was his peace", his daughter Toni said while accepting the trophy along with her brother. The song and album is also up for record of the year and album of the year, respectively.

Viewers can expect performances from Miley Cyrus, Yolanda Adams, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, Cardi B, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, H.E.R. and more. "Thank you for being my island", she said.

Rockets Acquire Iman Shumpert, Kings Get Alec Burks In Three-Way Trade
Gerald Green added 25 from the bench while starters Eric Gordon (20) and Chris Paul (15) backed Harden with useful contributions. Cleveland will also send small forward and shooting guard Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets in this three-way deal.

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It
Given how EA has repeatedly said that this is a "premium" game , that rules out this being a small, indie-ish title. Investors are certainly being cautious-EA's share price is down more than 13 percent this morning.

Warnings revised as Storm Erik batters parts of UK
Terrifying footage emerged as British Airways flight BA276, travelling from India, tried to battle with Storm Erik on a landing. And even though some sunshine is also thought to be on the way for Sunday morning, the rain will continue through in the south.

Unsurprisingly and well-deservedly, Childish Gambino was given best music video for "This Is America".

Women were strongly represented at this year's Grammys.

Janelle Monae's Dirty Computer, country singer Kacey Musgraves' Golden Hour, Carlile's By The Way, I Forgive You, newcomer H.E.R's self-titled H.E.R., and the Black Panther soundtrack round out contenders for album of the year.

To help combat the Grammys' much-discussed diversity problem, the Recording Academy expanded the major categories to eight nominees each - so now that the field is wider than ever, expect some upsets. You've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you are a hero in your hometown.

A performance honoring the legacy of the late "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin is also expected.
