Grammys 2020: Winners List & Comment Party

The 62nd installment of the Grammys has arrived. Once more, Music’s Biggest Night™ will bring plenty of performances — Ariana Grande will be there after the cancellation of her performance last year (Hi, Ken), as will Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani, Rosalía, Aerosmith (who will be joined by Run-DMC, but not their drummer Joey Kramer), and many more. And of course, many awards will be given out as well.

As usual, there are plenty stories to keep an eye on in between the performances. Lizzo and Billie Eilish, both first time nominees, could take the whole thing by storm. Big league indie acts like Vampire Weekend and Bon Iver could go full mainstream as contenders for Album Of The Year. Big Thief’s ascension could be further fueled with their first Grammy. And how is the bizarre Best Rock Song match-up going to shake out? Soon, we will have all the answers.

We’ll be updating this post all day as the results come in, starting with the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony, hosted by Imogen Heap, from 3:30-6:30PM ET and continuing through the official broadcast beginning at 8PM. Check here for the eventual winners in selected categories, and come through with your best memes and/or insights in the comments.
