So a collective sigh of relief is surely emanating from the award-show industrial complex, after the show's ratings were basically flat compared to previous year.

WWL-TV reports that New Orleans native P.J. Morton took home Best Traditional R&B Performance "for new vocal or instrumental traditional R&B recordings". He later acknowledged it was a poor choice of words and delivered another mea culpa on Sunday's show.

"During Drake's speech, there was a natural pause and at that moment the producers did assume that he was done and then cut to commercial", said Sunshine Sachs' Michael Samonte.

This hurt was remedied, or rather balanced out, by Janelle Monae's performance of her thirst anthem, "Make Me Feel", replete with robotic hip movements, futuristic attire, and pussy trousers! Under the circumstances, having a lengthy tribute to Portnow before he gave his own speech seemed tone-deaf.

On February 10th/11th BTS were invited to the 61st annual Grammy awards.

Keys reassured her fans and told viewers not to worry.

Kendall Jenner Confirms She's Been Dating Ben Simmons 'For a Bit Now'
Turning up the heat, Jenner replied with a racing auto emoji - seemingly implying she's on the way. DeGeneres went on to ask the reality star whether her mom approved of the relationship.

"But the point, is you have already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your home town". Mostly I'm just excited, and of course there's the glam and the wardrobe and the fact that my husband [Ruston Kelly] will get to be there sitting with me and hanging out with me.

Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour" picked up album of the year, and Dua Lipa won best new artist.

ET's Kevin Frazier spoke with Gaga backstage after her surprising performance, and the singer said she "had a great time" playing for the GRAMMYs audience. The highlight of Diana Ross' night was the cute introduction by a grandson with a mountain of hair.

On the performance front, Jennifer Lopez took the stage with Alicia Keys and Smokey Robinson for a tribute medley celebrating the sounds of Motown. This critically-acclaimed singer and songwriter earned three Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 10), and it's hard to say any were unexpected.

But the artist didn't attend the event and reportedly declined an invitation to perform at this year's show. "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves".
