Bruno Mars triumphs at Grammys

Bruno Mars triumphs at Grammys

Jay-Z went 0 for 8 in his nominations, despite being feted with the Recording Academy's Industry Icons award at Clive Davis' party the night before.

Lamar's most recent album, "DAMN." has been another critical and commercial success. And to those who would dare try to silence us, we offer you two words: "Time's up", Monae said in a reference to the Time's Up movement spreading from Hollywood to the music business. Watching the telecast, numerous night's strongest performances - Lady Gaga, Maren Morris, Rihanna, Cardi B and particularly Kesha - came from female artists.

"These songs were written with nothing but joy, with love, and that's all I wanted to bring with this album, seeing everybody dancing", Mars, 32, said.

Adele beat Beyoncé in 2017, and in 2016 Lamar lost album of the year to Taylor Swift.

Canadian singer and songwriter Alessia Cara won Best New Artist and she admitted having been practicing an Grammy award acceptance speech since childhood - in the shower.

One of the most talked-about moments came toward the end of the broadcast when former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, along with musicians Cher, Cardi B. and Snoop Dogg read excerpts from "Fire and Fury", Michael Wolff's scathing book about Trump's first year in office.

Best rap song: "Humble.", Kendrick Lamar.

Best pop solo performance: "Shape of You", Ed Sheeran. The show itself began with Lamar giving a politically charged performance - a "satire" as he called - in front of an American flag and with men dressed in military uniform.

Best rock album: A Deeper Understanding, The War on Drugs.

Posthumous Grammys were awarded to actress Carrie Fisher, singer Leonard Cohen and engineer Tom Coyne, who worked on Mars' "24K Magic" album.

The hugely popular Despacito, though performed live by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, was snubbed in terms of awards.
