We also have the Grammy Awards to look forward to this month and with Lizzo leading in nominations, an amazing lineup of performances including Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande, and women outperforming men in the top four categories, it looks like this will be another great Grammy show hosted again by the unequalled Alicia Keys.
