Watch President Donald Trump Announce Supreme Court Nominee Live

In a presidential first, Trump will announce his pick on primetime

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced he will be sharing his Supreme Court nominee on Facebook Live at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Trump will be the first president to announce his Supreme Court picks during primetime. As Variety notes, in the past, presidents have all announced nominations during daytime.

Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will fill the seat left empty by the passing of Justice Scalia, who died in February 2016. President Barack Obama had nominated U.S. Circuit Court Judge Merrick Garland to fill the void, however, Senate Republicans refused to consider the pick.

According to TIME, Trump has reportedly narrowed his choices down to three finalists, all of whom are federal appeals court judges appointed by former President George W. Bush: Neil Gorsuch, 49, serves on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver; Thomas Hardiman, 51, serves alongside Trump's sister on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; and William Pryor, 54, who serves on the 11th Circuit.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
