Alessia Cara Wins Best New Artist at the 2018 Grammy Awards

Rihanna Alessia Cara Wins Best New Artist at the 2018 Grammy Awards

"Women are as precious as they are stronger than any man that I have ever met".

So, is this a problem with sexism or a problem with the "hearts and souls" of women in music?

"We have a wealth of riches every year, and it's hard to have a balanced show and have everybody involved", Portnow said.

SHAFFER'S SHOWTIME: He's played alongside many of music's biggest names, so it's fitting that Paul Shaffer was asked to participate in the Grammys' momentous year.

Beyond the backlash, many were happy that Cara won her first Grammys this year.

But the actual winners list when it came to the major categories was almost a "men only" affair, as the only woman to win in one of the top categories this year was Alessia Cara.

It's not just an issue of female artists being underrepresented. The "Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony" will stream live on the Grammys website on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.

And as to whether the presence of Taylor Swift could've improved the situation, Ehrlich said, "It wasn't her year". Alessia took home the award for Best New Artist.

Portnow similarly dodged a journalist's question about Lorde, a two-time Grammy victor whose Melodrama was up for album of the year, but lost to Bruno Mars' 24K Magic. "You think I'd have the speech thing down, but I absolutely don't", she continued. "People would assume I was someone's girlfriend". However, many people on social media voiced their disbelief at Cara coming away with the prize. As a soprano, the Nova Scotia singer only competed for jobs with other women.

Referencing 10-time Grammy Award victor Taylor Swift, Portnow said she had been "kind of off cycle" this year and added: "Hopefully we'll see her next year".

She added: 'I just want to encourage everyone to support real music and real artists. "That's the kind of goal for me".

"For some reason it seemed absolutely appropriate for a woman to conduct a choir but not an orchestra", she said. I know I look white as hell, but my father is Black and my mother is white.

While she doesn't dwell on her gender, Hannigan recognizes she is among a rare set of female conductors. He was born in Maryland and began exploring music as a teenager. They are wonderful. That's all I wanted to do.
