The ratings for the 2019 Grammy Awards are up from last year. According to The New York Post, the show — which was hosted by Alicia Keys, scored 19.9 million viewers — up slightly from last year’s 19.8 million viewers. Last year’s show, which was hosted by James Corden, came very close to the lowest ratings CBS has ever received for a Grammy’s telecast — 19.04 million viewers in 2009.
Jennifer Lopez faced some backlash with some fans who were not happy that she was chosen to perform the Motown tribute at the 2019 Grammys without having a clear connection to the genre. She told Entertainment tonight:
“The thing about music is that it inspires all. Any type of music can inspire any type of artist. You can’t tell people what to love. You can’t tell people what they can and can’t do, what they should sing or not sing. You gotta do what’s in your heart,”
Pink’s children gifted her a homemade, tin foil award after she lost during the Grammy Awards.
Pink was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for Beautiful Trauma but lost to Ariana Grande’s Sweetener on Sunday.
Pink last won a Grammy in 2010 when she took home the award for best pop collaboration with vocals for her cover of “Imagine” with Seal and India Arie.
