Here are the winners in the top categories at the Grammys

In fact, it should have been his year at the 2013 and 2015 Grammys, when he was twice robbed of the Grammy for Album of the Year. The win capped an evening where the 32-year-old star won all six of the six awards for which he was nominated. He'll continue to be a profit powerhouse for the industry, but it remains that he has very little-if anything-to say.

He also won the the R&B performance and R&B song Grammys for "That's What I Like" and "24K Magic", and took the R&B album and the best engineered album awards. But those should have been consolation prizes for the big moment he's deserved his entire career. The show started with soldiers marching onstage before an American flag, as Lamar performed a medley of his hits including XXX. Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, who played Omaha in the summer, won the best Americana album and song awards.

Here's the complete list of winners at the Grammy Awards, announced Sunday by The Recording Academy.

The screen flashed "This is a satire by Kendrick Lamar" before Dave Chappelle appeared. The no-show won Best Pop Vocal Album - even though he was the only male nominee in the category and female artists took home hardly any awards the whole night.

The night reached an emotional climax when Kesha, joined by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Julia Michaels and members of the Resistance Revival Chorus, united to sing her ballad Praying.

Bruno Mars paid a whopping $6.5 million for his home that's located on two acres of land in Fryman Canyon, the same neighbourhood where Hollywood superstar George Clooney lives. I know they were up for a couple nominations and had an album out a year ago, but Chris Stapleton didn't even get a full-band performance, so the time could've easily been better utilized.

"First off, to the other nominees in this category", Mars said, pointing around the room, "you guys are the reason why I'm in the studio pulling my hair out, man, 'cause I know you guys are gonna only come with the top-shelf artistry and music".

"On the behalf of those who fight for equality in a world that is not equal, not just and not ready for the change we are here to bring, I say unto you: Bring us your exhausted, your poor and any immigrant who seeks refuge for together we can build, not just a better country, but a world that is destined to be united", he said.

- Best Dance/Electronic Album: "3-D The Catalogue".

- Best jazz instrumental album: 'Rebirth, ' Billy Childs.

While some fans likely felt it was missing something since Justin Bieber skipped the Grammys altogether, the pair's return to the song's roots, performing it entirely in Spanish, proved that while Bieber's involvement helped bring the song more mainstream, he wasn't needed to make it great.
