The 2019 Grammys was not short of pleasant surprises and arguable snubs. Childish Gambino’s “This is America” bagged four awards – the highest number for a single this year, beating Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” from the hit film “A Star is Born”, which won two awards.

After receiving a Pulitzer Prize last year, Kendrick Lamar continues to impress with five nominations for the “Black Panther” soundtrack he produced. Meanwhile, the late Mac Miller received his first ever nomination, but lost to Cardi B, who took home her first Grammy. This was met with backlash from Ariana Grande, Miller’s ex-girlfriend and a Grammy winner herself; though she gave the ceremony a miss for reasons you can read all about on her Twitter.
