Grammy Awards: Photos from the first 60 years

Grammy Awards: Photos from the first 60 years

Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and Bruno Mars lead the nominees for the 2018 Grammys.

Jay-Z goes into Sunday's ceremony in NY with a leading eight nominations followed by Lamar (7), Bruno Mars (6) and Childish Gambino, the alter ego of actor Donald Glover, with 5.

Beyond the night's headlining names, there's the distinct chance that history will be made at this year's awards. Solti holds 31 Grammys and also holds the record for the most wins in the classical field.

Which act do you think will be country music's biggest victor at the 2018 Grammy Awards?

Alison Krauss is the female artist with the most Grammy wins, having won 27 Grammys.

The win for Adele, though, marked another year when the Grammys awarded its biggest prizes to an artist outside of the rap or R&B genre.

1959 At the first Grammys, the Best Rhythm & Blues Performance category was won by a white group, the Champs, with "Tequila".

Global stocks mostly higher on strong Chinese growth
Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the opening bell in New York, U.S., January 12, 2018. The S&P 500 closed down 9.82 points, or 0.4%, to 2,776, with eight of the 11 main sectors finishing in negative territory.

Lamar, 30, whose fusion of jazz, poetry and blues with social themes and love songs has made him one of the most innovative rappers of his generation, missed out in 2016 with his critically acclaimed album "To Pimp a Butterfly".

"This is the biggest night in music returning to the musical capital of the world and that feels really good", said de Blasio, whose office estimates this week of activities will generate $200 million in revenue. Of all the nominees this year, the song that best suits the category's recent trajectory is Logic's 1-800-273-8255, with a suicide-awareness message that voters will likely perceive as meaningful.

She was scheduled to perform a song titled "Kiss It Better".

Others slated to perform include Lady GaGa, Pink, Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith, Elton John, and others. Kanye West, Eminem, Mariah Carey and others have also lost in the top categories over the years to pop, rock and country acts despite owning the year in music, critically and commercially. 24K Magic is similarly crowd pleasing.

There are reportedly conflicting perceptions over several matters, including categories of sponsorships. That may tip the scales in Despacito's favor, which was America's No. 1 single for much of 2017.

Losing in every category, reportedly she was regarded as being snubbed by the National Academy of Recording and Sciences. Despite being up against Lamar's "DAMN." and Jay-Z's "4:44", "Flower Boy" is a worthy opponent - some of the album's content is unprecedented in the rap community, such as the explicit references to Okonma's sexuality and lyrics that call out the rap community on its homophobia.

The last time the Grammys graced NY was right after 9/11, when Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me" beat out Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising" for album of the year. The Grammys will likely try to make up for lost time by granting her the trophy.
