In the UK, you have to wait until 4Music screen the show at 8pm on Monday night. Good luck avoiding spoilers. However, you can watch the red carpet coverage live on E! Other performers are likely to be announced in the run-up to the show, and there are usually a few surprises on the night itself. There are 84 categories at the Grammys - including "best surround sound album" and "best notes" C is our favourite - so if you're a musician and you don't get a prize, it's probably best to cut your losses and take up ostrich farming.
Bruno Mars was the big winner at this year's Grammy Awards - winning all six awards he was nominated for, including album of the year. Jay-Z was the leading nominee with eight nods but left empty handed, one year after his wife Beyonce missed out on album of the year to Adele. Kendrick Lamar, widely expected to pick up the evening's main prize for his fourth album DAMN, was limited to rap-only categories. The evening was not just a disappointment for those who hoped to see rap break out from genre-specific categories, but it was also noticeably short on female winners. In a politically charged ceremony where the Time's Up movement and the MeToo campaign were celebrated, and where invitees wore white roses to support victims of sexual harassment, only one female artist picked up a major award.

Grammy Nominations: Full List of Nominees for 59th Annual Awards
The rapper and music mogul received eight nominations, including record of the year, song of the year, rap performance, rap album and the coveted album of the year. The freshly released is the first album in Jay's year career nominated for the main category. He will be fighting for the top prize against big names such as Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars and relative newcomers like Childish Gambino and Lorde. Lorde is the only female act nominated for the main prize, while record of the year has only five men competing for the gong. Among the biggest snubs is to Ed Sheeran, who failed to get even one nomination in the main categories for his album Divide. Kesha and Lady Gaga, who have both recently reinvented their artistic persona, Gaga as a country singer and Kesha as a more serious pop artist, have been left out of the nominations. The least surprising nomination goes to Kendrick Lamar's heavily praised album Damn - widely expected to sweep the main categories.
