Bruno Mars Wins Big At Grammys 2018

Bruno Mars Wins Big At Grammys 2018

He beat out Jay-Z, Tyler, the Creator and Migos.

Mars has now been nominated for Record of the Year an incredible six times, and this is his second (and second consecutive) win.

- Best rap album: "DAMN.", Kendrick Lamar.

And it had already been a rough day. It's tricky, but think of it like this: the song of the year award honors only the musician and the songwriters of a song, while record of the year only recognizes the musician and the technical contributions of all those who created a song.

- Best urban contemporary album: "Free 6LACK", 6LACK; "Awaken, My Love!", Childish Gambino; "American Teen", Khalid; "Ctrl", SZA; "Starboy", The Weeknd.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar and pop superstar Lady Gaga opened the Grammy Awards on Sunday with immediate if understated political touches.

As for Jay, he went into the ceremony with the most nominations - eight - but was shut out of every single category.

The award was presented by two-time winners Bono and Dave "The Edge" Evans from U2. Somehow, it all held together.

There were other stand-out performances Sunday night, including a touching tribute to those who lost their lives past year at concerts around the world.

He didn't win all the trophies, though. The performance, with best new artist victor Alessia Cara and Khalid, included a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

-Chris Stapleton's "From A Room: Volume 1" won the best country album.

Kendrick Lamar kicked off the 60th annual Grammy Awards kicked off Sunday night inside New York City's Madison Square Garden with a powerful performance.

It was a bittersweet night for ascending Washington-area artists.

In the pre-telecast, Lamar won best rap song, best rap performance and best music video for "HUMBLE". This year they were Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars who received a lot of trophies for their music and even offered some unbelievable performances.

Kesha showed her support for the #MeToo movement with her stunning performance of "Praying", which was definitely one of the most special moments from the Grammys last night. "We have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well", said multi-Grammy nominee Janelle Monae in a stirring speech.

There were other messages and memorials.

After a performance of "Tears in Heaven" by Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne and Eric Church was another standout performance, this one by Kesha.

Three hours into the program, it still wasn't clear whether we'd be hearing anything from Lorde.

Ed Sheeran has emerged the victor in the two categories he was nominated in- "Shape of You" for Best Pop Solo Performance and ÷ ('Divide') for Pop Vocal Album.

- Album of the year: "24K Magic", Bruno Mars.
