R&B singer SZA, who had a breakout year with her album CTRL and was nominated for five awards, went home empty handed, even as her highly anticipated performance was saved for late in the show.

Lorde, the only woman nominated in the album of the year category for her 2017 chart-topper, Melodrama, seems to have a bone to pick with the Grammys.

While Cara, Cardi B, Little Big Town's Fairchild and Schlapman, Maren Morris, Miley Cyrus, Patti Lupone, Pink, and Rihanna were among the women who took the stage and performed solo or in a group on Sunday night during the CBS telecast.

Addressing reporters and supporters - including the heads of far-right parties - Zeman thanked the voters for his re-election. In 2013, for example, he appointed a caretaker government of his allies for five months against the will of parliament.

While she did not perform on the Grammys, Lorde performed twice in NY during Grammy Week, playing a four-song set with Jack Antonoff at his Ally Coalition benefit, and also playing a powerful version of Stevie Nicks' "Silver Springs" at the MusiCares Fleetwood Mac tribute at Radio City Music Hall. She declined to do so.

The majority of attendees of the Grammy Awards chose to wear white roses in support of the #TimesUp movement, following a plan organised by Meg Harkins and Kerin Rait to emulate those who wore black at the Golden Globe Awards. Yelich's tweet undoubtedly condemns the Recording Academy's failure to highlight Lorde's work with a solo performance, which irked viewers. And that's all before we get to the fact that only one (1) woman won a televised award during the entire three-and-a-half-hour ceremony. Sheeran's hit Shape of You triumphed instead of Kesha's deeply personal anti-abuse anthem Praying, her performance of which wasregarded as the most powerful moment of the ceremony. We have a box and it gets full.

"What you see in nominations is a reflection of the voting membership of the Academy".

Portnow's explanation placed the majority of responsibility on women. "But I think it's really a combination of us in the industry making a welcome mat very obvious: creating mentorships, creating opportunities, not only for women, but for all people".

"I think they would be welcome", Portnow continued.

The response to Portnow's comment and #GrammysSoMale has been mixed.
