The 60th Grammy Awards, hosted by James Corden, happened in Madison Square Garden, New York on January 28 — a first time since 2003 that the ceremony was held outside Los Angeles.
Some of the evening’s highlights include Bruno Mars taking home six Grammys followed by Kendrick Lamar’s claim to five. Many of those who have attended walked the red carpet with white roses to honor the victims of sexual abuse, as inspired by the #TimesUp campaign. As finale, American rapper Logic and Alessia Cara made a powerful performance of their song 1-800-273-8255 dedicated to those who had attempted or lost their lives because of suicide.
With the night filled with advocacies and stardom, here are the most notable winners of 2018’s Grammy awards:
Bruno Mars took home Album, Record, and R&B Album of the Year for his album, 24K Magic, as well as R&B Song, R&B Performance, and Song of the Year for “That’s What I Like”, effortlessly sweeping six awards in one night.
Kendrick Lamar had a close battle with Bruno this year, winning Rap album of the Year for “DAMN.,”; Rap/sung performance of the Year for “Loyalty” feat. the one and only Queen Riri; and rap song & performance and music video of the Year for “HUMBLE.,”
