Hugh Jackman, an Emmy and Tony victor, won his first Grammy, picking up best compilation soundtrack for visual media for "The Greatest Showman". Beck's 2017 album, Colors, beat out Arctic Monkeys'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, St. Vincent's MASSEDUCTION, Bjork's Utopia, and David Byrne's American Utopia for the award.

Carlile was emotional as she accepted the GRAMMY after her first win, and talked about her hard high school experience growing up after she came out as a teen.

Childish Gambino, Tori Kelly and Lauren Daigle won two awards each.

For more early content, the Recording Academy has a pre-show starting at 5 p.m. on the Grammys Facebook page (you can also watch on the CBS Facebook page or CBS.com), hosted by "ET Live's" Cassie DiLaura and Dana Blair.

Keys told CBS news this year´s greater representation from women was "far overdue". Natalia Lafourcade and Angela Aguilar are among the premiere ceremony performers.

This year, Academy voters did pass on nominating perennial favourites like Taylor Swift for the top three prizes of Album, Record and Song of the Year, relegating pop stars who reigned in years prior to lesser categories.

"This is going to be a special Grammys. I am such a misfit", she said. "I relax more ... when I know that I am supported by other women ... and I feel like I can do anything". Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy", Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour", Brandi Carlile's "By the Way, I Forgive You" and H.E.R.'s self-titled album are also in contention.

Women are hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them previous year to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night.

Lady Gaga scooped up five nominations including for both Record and Song of the Year for her heart-pounding hit Shallow, which she performed in the film A Star Is Born with co-star Bradley Cooper. "This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future".

There'll be more news to come tonight.

The lead-up to this year's Grammys has not been completely smooth, though. Despite being heavily advertised as part of the show, Grande is not performing nor even attending the Sunday ceremony, after she felt producers "insulted" her by asserting too much control over her song choices.

"I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken", she wrote Thursday afternoon.

"I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me", she tweeted.

Carlile told the AP she stands behind Grande's "decision to stand up for herself and her art".
