In 2019, the Grammys replaced longtime CEO Neil Portnow with Deborah Dugan, who has been usurped by Portnow cronies. Dugan was trying to right an organization that has been called a “boys club” for decades along with the seemingly rigged way winners are chosen in certain categories.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards airs Sunday, January 26, at 8 PM Eastern on CBS.
