Bruno Mars wins Grammy for top album, best song

Why Are Celebrities Wearing White Roses at the Grammy Awards?

Kendrick Lamar's show opener earned a standing ovation.

"This is special man".

The ceremony had been billed as a battle between Lamar and Jay-Z with both nominated in the bigger categories.

Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z dominated the nominations.

The album has been nominated for a Teens Choice award, a UK Music Video award and a BBC Music award.

Awards were also posthumously given to Leonard Cohen, for best rock performance, and Carrie Fisher, for best spoken word album with her reading of her memoir The Princess Diarist.

The late Carrie Fisher was also an early victor.

Alessia Cara won Best New Artist commenting that she had been practicing for a Grammy acceptance speech since childhood - in the shower. Double winners included Jason Isbell, Justin Hurwitz and CeCe Winans.

"This is unbelievable", Stapleton said onstage.

The Stones picked up a Grammy Award for traditional blues album for their covers Blue & Lonesome.

- Best pop duo/group performance: 'Feel It Still, ' Portugal. Gambino was joined by young singer-actor, JD McCrary, who matched his vocals and sings on the original track.

- Best rap song: "HUMBLE.", Kendrick Lamar.

From sweeping wins to showstopping performances, these are the five moments you need to know about the 2018 Grammy Awards. Either artist could make history and become the first rapper to win record of the year and the third to win album of the year.

Other major contenders include Mars, with "24K Magic", his latest return to fun-loving, old-school funk.

Mars was up against "Awaken, My Love!" by Childish Gambino, "4:44" by JAY-Z, "DAMN." by Kendrick Lamar and "Melodrama" by Lorde for album of the year.

"What you see in nominations is a reflection of the voting membership of the Academy".

The Record of the Year honors "artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to sales or chart position". "And to those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: Time's up". "And that's how we want it to be".

Best Dance Recording went to LCD Soundsytem for the track "Tonite", while the Best Dance/Electronic Album prize went to the Kraftwerk collection "3-D The Catalogue".

Monae, introducing a performance by Kesha, also called "Time's Up" on the "abuse of power", saying the music industry is also affected by sexual harassment.

Last year, in addition to allegedly "saving" SoundCloud, the social network where aspiring artists share their music with one another, Chance The Rapper won the Grammy for Best Rap Album.
