Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lead Grammy Nominations

Kendrick Lamar and Drake lead the way ahead of tonight's 61st Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Lamar's got eight nods thanks largely to his work on the soundtrack for Marvel's superhero film Black Panther - while Drake has seven nominations for Scorpion.

But there is some doubt about whether either of them will show up.

According to the New York Times, both turned invitations to perform at the awards show.

Back in 2017, Drake refused to attend the event despite winning the prize for best rap song for Hotline Bling -- he said it wasn't rap.

It doesn't look like Ariana Grande will be turning up either.

She took aim at organisers in a tweet this week saying her "creativity and self-expression" was being stifled.

Mark Ronson, Cardi B and Dua Lipa will be among the performers.
