Little Big Town: They won Best Country Duo/Group Performance for Better Man, which they performed on the show. 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.
R&B sensation SZA was the most nominated woman of the night but lost all five awards for which she was nominated, including Best New Artist, which was won by Alessia Cara. With cameos from Dave Chappelle and U2's Bono and the Edge - plus breathtaking choreography that saw hoodie-clad dancers drop to the ground as gunshots sounded and Lamar performed his verse from labelmate Jay Rock's "King's Dead" - he showed how to make politics poignant and entertaining rather than obnoxious. While it's frustrating for fans, critics, and anyone who has seen how Lamar's music that can fuel and inspire social movements, these awards are nothing to him.
The early race at the 60th ceremony is being led by Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar who have three victories apiece.
R&B artist Bruno Mars won the top prize at the Grammy Awards on Sunday in another victory for pop-driven music over rap, now the most popular genre in the United States. She was joined by Cyndi Lauper, Andra Day, Camila Cabello and Bebe Rexha who engulfed the pop star in a hug as she got teary-eyed at the end of the song.
Cutting back to the chorus, Cardi B, and Bruno Mars hug on stage after closing off their performance.
He faces Coldplay in the album category while the band is also nominated for best pop group performance for their collaboration with The Chainsmokers on Something Just Like This.
Though it wasn't her best performance ever, Gaga's was still one worth noting, as she gave an emotional tribute on a piano covered with angel wings during her first number, before poignantly saying "Time's Up", and switching to her power ballad, "Million Reasons".
Mars shared his fourth award of the night, which recognizes songwriting, with co-writers Brody Brown, James Fauntleroy and Philip Lawrence and his production team The Stereotypes.
- Best jazz vocal album: "Dreams And Daggers", Cecile McLorin Salvant. The same thing happened last year with Adele, but I'm more accepting to the idea of Mars taking home "Album of the Year" than Adele doing so with a forgettable third album.
As we know, the Grammys are really about the performances.
- Best dance/electronic album: '3-D The Catalogue'.
Bruno Mars Grabs (Nearly) All the Grammys
Chris Stapleton won three awards , including best country album , best country song and best country solo performance . It's not that people didn't think victor Alessia Cara was deserving; they just thought she deserved to win in 2016.
