62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on January 26, 2020, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It recognized the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year, running from October 1, 2018, to August 31, 2019.    Alicia Keys hosted the ceremony, having hosted the previous year's ceremony as well.  Lizzo received the most nominations of any artist with eight, followed by Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X with six each. Eilish and her brother  Finneas received the most awards, with five wins each. Upon this, Eilish became the first artist to win the major four categories of Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist in the same year since Christopher Cross in 1981. 
Ten days prior to the ceremony, Recording Academy president
Deborah Dugan was relieved of her duties as president and CEO and placed on administrative leave from the organization. She sparked controversy by claiming that the organization engaged in corruption and favoritism; Champagne Billecart-Salmon pulled their ads and Megyn Kelly, Gabrielle Union, and others tweeted their support of Dugan. The ceremony was held on the same day as the  death of basketball player Kobe Bryant, to which Keys and Boyz II Men dedicated their performance of " It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" in his memory.
Background and controversy
After many years of being traditionally held in February (except during the years of the
Winter Olympics), the 62nd Grammy Awards ceremony was moved to January the week before Super Bowl LIV, following the Academy Awards' decision to move their 2020 ceremony to the second Sunday of February.  Nominations were announced in all 84 categories by  Gayle King, Alicia Keys and Bebe Rexha on the set of on November 20, 2019. CBS This Morning 
This was set to be the first edition of the Grammy Awards that the new Recording Academy president
Deborah Dugan would have presided over; however, she was relieved of her duties as president and CEO and placed on administrative leave from the organization ten days before the ceremony. The Academy launched an investigation into allegations that Dugan bullied an assistant. After her dismissal, Dugan sparked controversy by claiming that the Recording Academy engaged in favoritism and corruption during the Grammy nomination process.    Taylor Swift reportedly cancelled a planned surprise performance of her song " The Man" at the ceremony in solidarity with Dugan, although both Swift and Grammys producer  Ken Ehrlich denied this.  Recording Academy Chairman  Harvey Mason Jr. took over as interim president and chief executive officer and presided over the ceremony instead of Dugan.  
The ceremony was held at the Staples Center on the same day as the
death of basketball player Kobe Bryant, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers -- the arena is the team's home venue. Several tributes to Bryant were included in the ceremony, including a performance of " It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" by host Alicia Keys and Boyz II Men, while Lil Nas X, Lizzo and DJ Khaled all incorporated tributes to Bryant into their performances.   
For the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, multiple category changes were made.
 As of the 62nd Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy would accept links to streaming services as opposed to physical copies as submissions. The Academy stated: "For most categories, we would prefer streaming distribution links for online entry submissions, though CD submissions remain optional". As justification for this development, the Academy highlighted the changing music industry and added that submitting links was more convenient and cost effective, especially for smaller and independent labels.
Additionally, there were separate screening committees for Pop and Rock, whereas previously these categories were screened by a Core Committee. This leaves the Core Committee to focus on the more difficult decisions such as determining who is eligible for the
Best New Artist category and trying to find the best home for borderline genre entries. The definition of the
Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album had been expanded to accept "contemporary pop songs performed in traditional pop style - the term "traditional" being a reference to the style of the composition, vocal styling and the instrumental arrangement without regard to the age of the material". The Academy stated that broadening the category was done in an attempt to allow it to "remain robust and inclusive" and enable it to be more competitive as, for example, Tony Bennett has won the award 13 times. Spoken word recordings targeted at children had been moved from the
Best Children's Album category to the Best Spoken Word Album. As of the 62nd Grammy Awards, Spanish-language Latin Gospel and Christian music would be officially welcomed in the Best Gospel Album, Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Best Roots Gospel Album, Best Gospel Performance/Song and Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song categories.
