Poll: Who Are You Most Excited To See Walk The 2019 GRAMMY Red Carpet?
Ariana Grande, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Beyoncé, JAY-Z, Cardi B, Chloe X Halle, Janelle Monáe and Lady Gaga are among the talented group of current nominees for the 61st GRAMMY Awards. Other than their enviable vocal chops, here's something else these artists have in common: They always bring their sartorial A-game, whether it's dressing up for a music video shoot, a big event or something in between. Who are you most looking forward to seeing work it on the 2019 GRAMMY red carpet?
2018 was a big year for Grande, who lived up to her larger-than-life name with a GRAMMY-nominated No. 1 album, Sweetener, and her record-breaking viral No. 1 single "Thank U, Next." There's no doubt about it: our Princesses Of Pop is bound to give us an extra-sweet look on the red carpet.
Bad Bunny and J Balvin are two of the leading men in the Stateside Latin music explosion in 2018, and both of their bright and eclectic fashion senses continue to turn heads. The former is at the helm of the Latin trap sound, and the latter is widely sited as giving reggaeton a global boost this year. They have collabed on multiple occasions, including on one of the biggest songs of Summer 2018: Cardi B's GRAMMY-nominated "I Like It."
Speaking of Cardi, the hip-hop queen always slays in the style department, with bold looks that assert her reign in the rap game. Not only is "I Like It" nominated for Record Of The Year, the album it's featured on, her studio debut Invasion Of Privacy, is up for Album Of The Year and Best Rap Album.
Beyoncé and JAY-Z are one of the most iconic—and stylish—musical power couples of our time. And though Queen Bey doesn’t always opt to appear on the carpet, we always hold out hope for a glimpse. The duo’s surprise The Carters album, Everything Is Love, is up for Best Urban Contemporary Album, along with two additional noms for its singles.
Sisters Chloe X Halle must have paid close attention to their mentors, including Beyoncé, who signed them to her Parkwood Entertainment label. While they're both under 21, their sense of style and artistic expression far surpasses their ages. The burgeoning R&B duo are up for Best New Artist as well as Best Urban Contemporary Album for their debut studio album, The Kids Are Alright.
Meanwhile, Monáe's fashion blends bold, classic and cutting-edge in a black, white and red palate, and perfectly matches her funky, futuristic brand of R&B. Her groundbreaking third studio album, Dirty Computer, is up for Album Of The Year and "PYNK," featuring Grimes, is up for Best Music Video.
Finally, Lady Gaga's ever-evolving musical stylings and avant-garde fashion sense make her an exciting pop culture icon to follow. Always one to keep the world guessing, she outdid herself with a lead role on the silver screen in A Star Is Born, alongside Bradley Cooper. One of their duets from the film's soundtrack, "Shallow," has the pair up for four noms this year, including for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.
Let us know who you can’t wait to see strut their stuff on the red carpet at the 61st GRAMMY Awards in the poll above, and don’t forget to watch the 61st GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10th on CBS.
