Kendrick Lamar And Bruno Mars Win Big At The Grammys

Bruno Mars pulled off a clean sweep of album, record and song of the year categories at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday night,upsetting odds-favorites Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z to take home the evening’s three most prestigious awards. The 24K Magic singer won all six awards he was nominated for, while Lamar went home with five and Jay-Z, who had the most nominations of any performer with eight, was left empty-handed.Mandatory Credit: Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP/REX/Shutterstock (9337309bz)

Kendrick Lamar, the second-most nominated artist of the night, kicked off the ceremony with a medley of songs from his album DAMN. Lamar, who’s nabbed a Grammy nomination in at least one category for six consecutive Grammys, was joined by Dave Chapelle and Bono, who features on Lamar’s song XXX.

The ceremony was not without its gimmicks, too, most notably a pre-recorded segment that featured host James Corden auditioning various celebrities to narrate the audiobook version Michael Wolff’s bombshell book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cardi B and Cher all made cameos, but none were more surprising than that of Hillary Clinton’s, who read a line from the best-selling exposé aloud, much to the chagrin of UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

Many attendees walked the red carpet with white roses in tow to honor the victims of sexual abuse, a piggyback off the Time’s Up talismans celebrities wore to the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month. A group called Voices in Entertainment, directed by led by Meg Harkins of Roc Nation and Karen Rait of Interscope Records, spearheaded the initiative.
