Lady Gaga Gives a Sizzling Performance of ''Shallow'' at Grammys

LOS ANGELES CA- FEBRUARY 08 H.E.R. performs during Basic Magazine and H.E.R. Pre Grammy Party at the Private Residence of the CEO of Absolut Elyx

"I'm in tears with honor and gratitude..." she tweeted after her win for A Star Is Born was announced.

The 61st annual Grammy Awards air live on CBS at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10.

At almost the two-hour point of the show, country duo Dan + Shay seemed ebullient when they announced Drake's name as victor for best rap song.

Gaga told the crowd: "They said I was weird, that my look, that my choices, that my sound wouldn't work".

Rapper Childish Gambino's "This is America", about police brutality and racism, won the first big award - song of the year - as well as best music video, and best rap performance.

Kacey Musgraves has won two golden gramophones so far: "Space Cowboy" was voted best country song by the Recording Academy, while "Butterflies" won best country solo performance.

Apple releases bug fix for embarrassing security flaw that allowed FaceTime eavesdropping
Apple turned off the group chat feature last week, several days after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw. This runs counter to how most tech companies handle bug reports, especially those involving vulnerabilities in their products.

In a charming twist, USA president Jimmy Carter won his third Grammy in the Spoken World Album category for the audio version of his best-selling book "Faith: A Journey For All". "I love you. Thank you so much to the Grammys".

Women artists scored nominations in all of the top categories, after being largely muted a year ago: rapper Cardi B, pop diva Lady Gaga, pop futurist Janelle Monae and folk rocker Brandi Carlile are among the frontrunners.

He called it "the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that".

During one of her Las Vegas residency shows last month, Gaga brought the show to a complete stop while performing "Million Reasons" to deliver a message to Trump during the partial government shutdown at the time. "Just knowing that so many women are nominated this year, looking back from last year to this year when I was on the stage at the Grammys, you could see that I was frustrated about the opportunities and about our visibility as women", said Monae, who gave powerful speech last year ahead of Kesha's emotional and striking performance celebrating sisterhood and women's rights.

"Shallow" is still up in three other categories, including Record of the Year. "He's over in the United Kingdom, I know he wants to be here, Bradley, I love singing this song with you". Other big stars also declined to attend, including Kendrick Lamar, the top nominee with eight, and Drake, nominated for seven awards. "I support her and I support her decision", she added. But it was female artists who dominated nominations in the top categories.
