In the first time in more than 10 years the Grammys commenced in New York City at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28th hosted by The Late Late Show host James Corden. The 60th celebration of biggest night of music brought out Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Bruno Mars, Little Big Town, U2, Elton John, Kesha, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, and more.
The award ceremony is always about bringing awareness on the importance of music and often combines unlikely elements of music together to create talked about “Grammy moments.” This year Kendrick Lamar opened up the show with some help from Dave Chappelle and U2 telling the truth about America and black men in America. Another huge moment was Kesha’s powerful “Praying” performance featuring Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha, and Andra Day.
Bruno Mars, who won several awards including taking home the top honors of Album and Record of The Year, performed his colorful hit “Finesse” with Cardi B. DJ Khaled also turned the crowd up with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller performing “Wild Thoughts.”
Other trending moments from the show came from Grammys host James Corden. He put a spin on his L.A. Carpool Karaoke and did Subway Pool Karaoke with Shaggy and Sting. He also got musicians and a special guest to read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s best-selling book “Fire & Fury,” an account of 45 in the White House.
Of course there were awards. Despite being the most nominated woman at the Grammys, SZA didn’t take home any trophies. Alessia Cara won for Best New Artist and was the only woman to earn a Grammy during the televised portion of the event. Kendrick Lamar took home several awards along with Ed Sheeran, Dave Chappelle, Childish Gambino, The Weeknd, Little Big Town, and more.
