Grammy 2019: the complete list of winners • theverge.com

Does the world need the Grammy Awards? It's not according to Grammy-winning Drake, who was cut off by the Recording Academy at its 2019 ceremony, after suggesting that Grammys are not as important as viral popularity. After winning the "Best Rap Song" award for "Plan of God," Drake used his winner's speech to encourage musicians to work their craft, regardless of their recognition. "All my peers who make music with their heart, who do things pure and tell the truth, I want you to know that we practice a sport based on opinion, not a sport based on facts" , did he declare. "So it's not the NBA where, at the end of the year, you hold a trophy because you've made the right decisions or won the games."

"The fact is that you have already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if you are a hero in your hometown," he continued. "Look, look, if people who have a regular job go out in the rain, in the snow, spend their hard-earned money to buy tickets to attend your shows, you do not need it [award] right here. I promise you have already won. "

At that time, the producers of the ceremony cut off his microphone and switched to advertising. It was a highly discussed moment in an otherwise non-controversial ceremony, where Kacey Musgraves' album was singled out. Gold hour and Childish Gambino's This of America won four awards, including the song of the year and the best music video. It was the first rap song in history to win the Grammys song title of the year.

In addition, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have had an important year, winning the best duo pop / group title and the best song written for Visual Media for their song "Shallow", Cooper's first film, A star is born. Lady Gaga also won the Best Solo Solo Performance Award for "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin"?), From her 2016 album Joanne. Drake and Childish Gambino had already declined the invitation to perform at this year's ceremony, but Lady Gaga presented a dazzling performance of "Shallow" that served as the point of intersection between her character of "traditional singer" and her character of "wild rock star". It was a good year for women in general, with Cardi B becoming the first solo woman to win the Best Rap album title and Brandi Carlile, three times in the American categories.
