See Full List of 2020 Grammy Nominees and Winners

The 2020 Grammys are shaping up to be one of the most competitive awards shows of the season. 

But there's no surprise there. The music industry continues to churn out hit after hit, making it increasingly difficult for the Recording Academy to choose just one person for the various categories.

 Choosing between Rosalia, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and so many new artists is no easy decision, but thankfully it appears that win or lose these stars are guaranteed to give fans their all.

Let's take a look at the Winners Below

NBA Legend Kobe Bryant Dies In A Helicopter Crash

NBA legend Kobe Bryant is among five people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, a source confirmed to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Bryant was 41.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, there were no survivors of the crash. An investigation is ongoing.

The crash comes one day after Bryant was passed by Lakers forward LeBron James for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. As late as 10:39 p.m. ET on Saturday night, Bryant was active on social media, congratulating James on Twitter during the Lakers' 108-91 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

James inscribed his sneakers with "Mamba 4 Life" and "8/24 KB" in gold marker before the game, showing respect for Bryant, an 18-time All-Star with the Lakers who is eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020. All week, in the lead-up to the milestone, he was quick to laud Bryant.

"It's another guy that I looked up to when I was in grade school and high school," James said. "Seeing him come straight out of high school, he is someone that I used as inspiration. It was like, wow. Seeing a kid, 17 years old, come into the NBA and trying to make an impact on a franchise, I used it as motivation.

He helped me before he even knew of me because of what he was able to do. So, just to be able to, at this point of my career, to share the same jersey that he wore, be with this historical franchise and just represent the purple and gold, it's very humbling and it's dope.

Bryant has been married to Vanessa Laine Bryant since 2001, and they had four daughters together. His father Joe "Jellbean" Bryant is a former NBA player.

"Kobe's a legend, that's for damn sure."

A 6-foot, 6-inch small forward with the ability to swing up front and play point or shooting guard, Bryant entered the NBA straight out of high school. In 1996, he became the youngest player in NBA history.

He won five NBA titles in his time with the Lakers, as well as two Olympic gold medals playing for the United States. Now fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list, with 33,643 points, Bryant won two NBA Finals MVP awards and one NBA regular-season MVP nod in 2008.

A native of Philadelphia, Bryant was selected No. 13 overall in 1996 by the Charlotte Hornets before being traded to the Lakers. He wore both No. 8 and 24 with the Lakers, both of which were retired by the franchise.

"I'm happy just to be in any conversation with Kobe Bean Bryant. One of the all-time greatest basketball players to ever play, one of the all-time greatest Lakers," James said Saturday night. "The man got two jerseys hanging up in Staples Center. It's just crazy."

Bryant is the only player in NBA history to have multiple jerseys retired by a single franchise.

His highest scoring game came on Jan. 22, 2006 when he scored 81 points against the Raptors. That's the second-most points in a game in NBA history, behind Wilt Chamberlain's 100 on March 2, 1962.

On Nov. 29, 2015, Bryant announced that he intended to retire at the end of the season, which launched a farewell tour for the ages around the NBA. He played in 66 games that season for Los Angeles, averaging 17.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

In his final game, on April 13, 2016, he scored 60 points, leading the Lakers past the Utah Jazz 101-96.

While Bryant was an unqualified star on the court, he did have controversy off it. He was accused of sexual assault in Colorado in 2003. The criminal case was dropped the next year, but Bryant still issued an apology.

He said that he considered the encounter to be consensual but recognized that the woman "did not and does not view this incident the same way I did."

Bryant's death was first reported by TMZ

Why Many Smart And Gorgeous Ladies Stay Single For Years

Ever wondered why of recent some ladies don’t appear to be in a frenzy to take a man home to mama? Like these ladies are well ripe for marriage and everything but are still very much single!

Considering the fact that in this part of the country having a steady relationship headed to the altar is tagged as an accomplishment, let’s check up on reasons why smart and pretty ladies prefer to remain unattached.

Independence is the new cool
Gone are the days when the average woman seeks fulfillment in a man, now we have boss-ladies out there acing their career game and paying their own bills.

High standards
This is only to be expected when you earn your own dough, pay your bills and have a beautiful life of your own, any who would compete with your class and standards obviously has a lot of catching up to do.

Men get intimidated by beautiful and smart women
Understand that there are guys out there who don’t bother to shoot their shot when they come across a beautiful lady, in their mind, she’s very much engaged, besides there’s the fear of being turned down. So, they’d rather go for dross than chase gold.

Modern women no longer believe in fairy tales
Fairy tales are filled with princesses and their prince Charming living happily-ever-after, but in the real world, and for the 21st-century woman, her mind is turned away from the concept of finding true love when she understands the reality of heartbreak, infidelity, and betrayal.

Earthquake Struck Harry and Megan's Area on Vancouver Island

A magnitude 4.5 earthquake has hit Vancouver Island where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been staying.

The earthquake was detected off the west coast of the Canadian island at around 1.30pm on Friday, but no damages have been reported, according to Earthquakes Canada.
The US National Tsunami Warning Centre said no tsunami is expected to hit the island. But people around Vancouver Island and across Metro Vancouver said that they could feel the quake.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been staying on the island where they were seen hiking in the woods, local media reports.

They were said to have been living in a mansion on Saanitch Inlet outside of Victoria on the island's southern tip.

The couple announced that they will step down from royal duties, meaning they will stop using their HRH titles and will pay back £2.4 million of taxpayers' money spent on Frogmore Cottage.

They will spend their time between the UK and North America

The Queen thanked Harry and Meghan for their work in the UK and the Commonwealth and said she's proud of how Meghan has 'so quickly become one of the family'.

Harry arrived in Canada this week after the emergency royal meeting to discuss his and Meghan's future.

She said in a statement: "It is my whole family's hope that today's agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

"As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for royal duties.
