Bruno Mars ended hip hop Grammy dreams

Adjust Comment Print

Bruno Mars on Sunday won the Grammy for Record of the Year for his party anthem "24K Magic", the first time the funk revivalist has won the U.S. industry's award for top song on his own. I was thrown off by Bruno Mars, who I never expected would win so much, and Jay-Z, who I never expected would win nothing.

"I just wanted to remind the audience that the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest black man in America", he said. Dozens of artists and music industry players also sported white roses in support of the Time's Up and #MeToo movements against sexual abuse and harassment. Speaking to reporters backstage following her win, Cara commented: "I didn't expect this".

Lamar also had a strong showing, picking up five Grammys including best rap album for Damn.

Pop duo/group performance: "Feel It Still", Portugal.

Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, who had led with eight nominations, ended the night empty-handed.

Two assistants who tried the case said they respect the Friday night verdict and added that the McKnight family was happy. USC running back Joe McKnight walks off the field at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore., on October 31, 2009.

The losses by Lamar and Jay-Z in the top categories marked another year when pop music won over more socially incisive work.

Others believed Kendrick Lamar's album Damn. To those who would dare try to silence us, we offer two words: "Time's Up", Monae said.

Clinton's appearance was the punch line for a skit where host James Corden pretended to cast celebrities for what he thought would be a sure-fire Grammy contender for spoken world performance next year, reading from Michael Wolff's best-seller about the Trump admininistration, "Fire and Fury".

The show also featured a somber performance of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" by country artists Maren, Eric Church and the Osborne Brothers.

If Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's smash hit "Despacito" had won Song or Record of the year, it would have marked the first time a Spanish language track won in either category.

On the rumour that Laporte will join City on Monday, he said: "Let's see if this rumour which seems so widespread is confirmed". Other than suspension, this will be the first league game Laporte has missed all season for Athletic Club.

"We wanted to come together and honour the memory of the attractive, music-loving souls so cruelly taken from us", added Morris. Other artists who performed included Camilla Cabello, U2 and rapper Logic alongside Alessia Cara and Khalid.

Ed Sheeran winning two Grammys: I respect Sheeran's talent, but in all honesty, his latest record was his weakest yet.

The Grammys awarded artists in 84 categories in multiple genres including classical, jazz, opera, gospel, new age, Christian and Latin music.

"The performance was fine, if missing the loping bounce provided by its original band, which included saxophonist Branford Marsalis and drummer Manu Katché on Sting's second solo album ".Nothing Like the Sun", which was, as mentioned, released 30 years ago. A mashup of the current best musical theater album nominees would have played so much better.
