Kendrick Lamar leads the 2019 Grammy Awards nominations

61st GRAMMY Awards

At the 2018 Grammys, Kendrick Lamar walked away with five trophies.

Kelsea Ballerini, whose Unapologetically was nominated for Best Country Album, shared a moving post in which she explained that while she had accepted the fact that her album wasn't critically acclaimed, she was thrilled to have been recognized by the Recording Academy.

Just behind Lamar in number of nominations is Drake, who earned seven. So did Brandi Carlile, who earned nominations in the top three categories as well as nominations in the American Roots category.

- Best new artist: Chloe x Halle; Luke Combs; Greta Van Fleet; H.E.R.; Dua Lipa; Margo Price; Bebe Rexha; Jorja Smith.

Manchester United twice came from behind against Arsenal in an entertaining 2-2 Premier League draw at Old Trafford on Wednesday. United hit back just four minutes later, though.

As the New York Times notes, women also lead in some of the biggest categories this year; the awards show received criticism for a lack of diversity in the past. Five of the eight album of the year nominees are women, including Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, H.E.R. and Carlile.

Brothers Osborne scored two nods - one for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "Shoot Me Straight" and another for Best Country Album for Port Saint Joe - and called the recognition "unreal".

Taylor Swift, a two-time album of the year victor, also only earned one nomination. Justin Timberlake, whose "Man of the Woods" albums flopped earlier this year, picked up a nod for "Say Something", his collaboration with Chris Stapleton.

That being said, two of the three most notable top-category snubs (Taylor Swift, Travis Scott and Ariana Grande) involved women.

The surprising thing Queen told Michelle
Former MSNBC host Toure, who was at the speech, called it a "cute moment" and mocked those who criticized the first lady over it. Then, in what may be an unprecedented slip-up, Obama said the line that threw the audience and internet into a frenzy.

To be sure, Post Malone has a talent for hit-making.

The Grammys seem intent upon rewarding the embattled musical veteran - whose best music came in the '90s, in the form of oddball rock with a twisty take on hip-hop trends - for music that's thoroughly pleasant, but rarely much more. Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer. She was nominated in 1997 for her album, Lyrically Potent.

Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, both multiple Grammy winners, received a nomination for Love is Here to Stay, in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Kendrick Lamar has won 12 Grammy Awards during his career.

Israel launches attack on Lebanon, claims destroying Hezbollah tunnels
Israeli army spokesperson Jonathan Conricus said the "attack tunnels" detected were not yet operational. It said the army had boosted its presence and readiness and was prepared for "various scenarios".

The Recording Academy will present the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, on February 10. The pop singer, raised in Pickering, Ont., was named in two categories - song of the year for In My Blood and best pop vocal album.
