The Recording Academy has shut down reports that a list of alleged winners that leaked on Monday is the real deal.
Winners of the 2019 #GRAMMYS have apparently been leaked through their official website, with the "Big 3" categories named to the following:
Record of the Year – I Like It
Album of the Year – H.E.R.
Song of the Year – Shallow (@ladygaga)

“There is no legitimacy to this,” the Academy tells People.
“GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”
According to a video shared on Twitter, the list appeared to come straight from the Recording Academy’s website and showed Cardi B as the winner for record of the year for “I Like It.”
The ceremony will air on Sunday, February 10.
