61st edition of the Grammy Awards

February 11, 2019

The 61st edition of the Grammy Awards took place yesterday at Los Angeles’ Staples Center

The prizes awarded to the main categories are:
 
Album of the Year: Golden Hour – Kacey Musgraves
Record of the Year: "This Is America", Childish Gambino
Best New Artist: Dua Lipa
Best Rap Album: Invasion of Privacy – Cardi B
Best R&B Album: H.E.R. – H.E.R.
Best Rap Song: "God's Plan" - Drake
Best Country Album: Golden Hour – Kacey Musgraves
Song of the Year: "This Is America" – written by Donald Glover & Ludwig Göransson (sang by Childish Gambino)
Best Pop Duo/Group Performance: "Shallow" – Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper
 
The complete list can be found on the official website dedicated to the prestigious event.
The Grammy Awards, born in 1959, are considered as the “Oscars” of the music and they are awarded by the Recording Academy. 2019 is the last year Neil Portnow will chair the Recording Academy, as his office will end in July and wasn’t renowned.
The main innovation in the 2019 edition was the expansion of the four main categories (Record of the year, Album of the year, Song of the year and Best New Artist), to eight candidates instead of five, with the aim of representing the greatest number possible of musical genres in the nominations.
These are the nominees and the winners in the jazz category:
