Awards

Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar And Ed Sheeran Dominate Grammy Awards 2018

  • Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar were among the TOP winners at the 60th annual Grammy Awards held over the weekend.
  • It will go down as one of the biggest nights in the lives and careers of Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar as they stole the show and also won most of the awards, at the 2018 Grammys last night.

Mars walked away with six trophies in all, including the three biggest prizes: Album of the year, song of the year and record of the year. He also provided the night’s biggest upset after taking the album of the year trophy that most critics assumed would go to Lamar’s rap tour de force, Damn.

Although Mars’ victory robbed Kendrick Lamar’s more urgent, political album of the night’s main prizes, the Compton-born star dominated the rap categories and still took home five trophies, including best rap album, best rap song and best rap performance. Lamar’s victories came at the expense of rap veteran Jay-Z and his soul-baring album 4:44.

“You guys are the reason why I’m in the studio pulling my hair out”. Lamar said as he gave tribute to other nominees.

He also put up an electrifying performance on the night. 

Jay-Z won none of his eight nominations and chose not to perform at the three-hour show. But Lamar tipped his hat to the elder star, declaring “Jay for president!” as he collected the best rap album award.

With stars like Lady Gaga, Kesha, Lorde and SZA overlooked, Alessia Cara won best new artist – making her the only female artist to win a major prize with only 17 awards out of a total of 86 going to women or female-fronted bands.

Ed Sheeran, who could not attend the ceremony, won two prizes – best pop vocal performance for ‘Shape Of You’ and best pop album for ‘Divide’.
