Who is going to win at the Grammys?

We have our predictions, but you'll have to tune in on Sunday to see the ceremony unfold in real time. Aerosmith will be honored as the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year at the Grammys' MusiCares Gala two days before the show, and Sean "Diddy" Combs is set to accept the 2020 Grammy Salute To Industry Icons honor at Clive Davis' annual Pre-Grammy Gala on Saturday, Jan. 25. 

Anything else we should be on the lookout for?

With #GrammysSoMale at the forefront of past ceremonies, the Recording Academy formed a task force to address diversity and inclusion at the Grammys—which included naming its first female president and CEO of the organization. Controversy struck once again, however, when Deborah Dugan was suspended from her role over misconduct allegations. It's still unclear how the staffing hiccup, which was announced just 10 days before the Grammys, will impact the telecast.
