Grammy night was a big night for a lot of artists. For some, like Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars, they took home quite a few awards. While for others like SZA, it was being the most nominated female artist of the night.
On Sunday (Jan 28) the 60th ceremony was held in New York City for the first time in fifteen years. For the first time in a long time, the legendary musical event was heavily coveted with Hip Hop and R&B nominations. Artist like Childish Gambino, SZA, Cardi B, Lil Uzivert, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z were pitted against each other for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist.
For once, it was guaranteed new and old music lovers would be glued to the TV to see who would take home the golden gramophone.
The night began with an explosive opening performance by Kendrick Lamar. The west coast rapper then went on to win for his song collaboration Loyalty, with Rihanna. Other high energy performances also kept our attention throughout the night. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller accompanied DJ Khaled to perform his song, Wild Thoughts.
Midway through the show, Childish Gambino gave us an electrifying performance of his song, Terrified. Bruno Mars appeared alongside Cardi B to perform his Finesse remix. Closing out the night, SZA gave her first Grammy performance singing Broken Clocks off her CTRL album.
Some comedic moments during the show were made by Dave Chappelle, and host Corden with Shaggy and Sting by his side. We even caught a cameo by Hillary Clinton in a video parody with Cher, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg and others pretending to audition to record the audio version of Fire and Fury, a popular book about President Trump written by Michael Wolff.
