Women also have a strong presence in song and record of the year, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai.

"This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future", Monae said. Weeks later, the academy announced that it had hired Tina Tchen, a lawyer and Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, to head a new task force on inclusion and diversity.

Ariana Grande, with two nominations in the pop field, pulled out of the show late last week after a dispute with producers over which songs she would perform.

On Thursday, Grande broke her silence and shot back at Ehrlich in a series of tweets. "I see you", Monae said.

"It was when my creativity & self-expression was stifled by you that i decided not to attend. I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more".
