The complete list of 2018 Grammy Award winners

Bruno Mars was once the large winner on the 60th annual Grammy Awards, beating out the ruin hit “Despacito” for Song of the Year with “That’s What I Like,” and successful Record of the Year and Album of the Year for 24Okay Magic over Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and Childish Gambino. Lamar entered the night time with seven nominations, and whilst he took house Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song, he was once close out (once more) from much less genre-specific awards like Album of the Year, which has traditionally been unfriendly to rap and hip-hop, in addition to Record of the Year.

The rite kicked off with a searing efficiency through Lamar interspersed with observation from comic Dave Chappelle, who famous, “the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest black man in America.” The medley of Lamar’s paintings endured with dancers in camouflage army uniforms, cameos through Bono and The Edge, dance-infused taiko drumming, and dancers in crimson hoodies losing separately to the sound of gunshots.

Although a lot of celebrities together with Lady Gaga, Elton John and Nick Jonas displayed their beef up for #TimesUp through dressed in pins or white roses, the Grammys reportedly did not learn the room and introduced solo performances to all of the Album of the Year nominees apart from Lorde — the sole feminine nominee within the class, who didn’t carry out.

The night time was once peppered with politically charged moments, from Hillary Clinton and Cardi B studying aloud from Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House to U2 registering its beef up for Dreamers through making a song on a barge in entrance of the Statue of Liberty and shouting right into a megaphone painted like an American flag. The maximum emotional efficiency of the night time got here courtesy of Kesha, who sang “Pray,” a track about her stories with sexual abuse and trauma, whilst surrounded through feminine singers like Cyndi Lauper and Camila Cabello.

Janelle Monae, who presented Kesha, gave a passionate speech about sexual harassment and pay fairness within the song business. “To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: time’s up,” stated Monae. “We say Time’s Up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind, and the abuse of power… We come in peace, but we mean business.”
