The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards get underway on Sunday evening, with the famous Staples Center in Los Angeles celebrating those currently at the top of the music industry.

The event will recognise the best artists, compositions and recordings from the period October 1st 2018 to August 31st 2019.

Over 20,000 submissions were entered for GRAMMY consideration in what looks set to be another hugely competitive year for music.

Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Ariana Grande are among the top-nominated artists across the many fields available.

Those fields include Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album among several others.

Those categories will, however, be outshone by the three biggest awards on offer. The Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year are undoubtedly the most wanted successes on the night.

Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year went to Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ last time out. And Album Of The Year went to Kacey Musgraves for ‘Golden Hour’.

It was a closely-fought ceremony last time out, and this year looks set to be no different.

And it’s American artist Lizzo who is currently leading the race to secure the prize for the top song. She’s currently 6/4 to clinch the award for her single ‘Truth Hurts’.

She’s followed by fellow American Billie Eilish, who is 2/1 to win thanks to her single ‘Bad Guy’.

Lewis Capaldi is available at 5/2 to win Song Of The Year with ‘Someone You Loved’, with Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ available at 6/1.

Both Eilish and Lizzo also feature in the nominees for Record Of The Year, with the former currently 5/4 for ‘Bad Guy’ and the latter currently 5/1 for ‘Truth Hurts’.

It’s ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X at 7/4 that could push either for the prestigious award.

They are joined by Ariana Grande with her ‘7 Rings’ at 11/2, and ‘Sunflower’ by Post Malone & Swae Lee at 7/1.

And it’s 18-year-old Billie Eilish who is once again the favourite to succeed in the best album category.

Her album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ is currently 4/6 to clinch the award.

Lizzo’s ‘Cuz I Love You’ follows at 9/4. And ‘Norman F***ing Rockwell!’ by Lana Del Rey is 4/1.

Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ is available at 13/2. And ‘7’ by Lil Nas X is currently 16/1 to scoop Album Of The Year.

The reputable Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented on the evening, as well as the Music Educator Award and the Grammy Legend Award.
