Singer Alessia Cara had her own moment, though, winning best new artist.
The Grammys awarded artists in 84 categories in multiple genres including classical, jazz, opera, gospel, new age, Christian and Latin music. "I got a lot of guys in this building that I still idolize today", said Lamar, naming Jay-Z, Nas and Diddy as inspirations. "For together, we can build not just a better country but a world that is destined to be united".
Song of the year, which recognizes the songwriters of a particular track, was also nabbed by Mars for That's WHat I Like.

"This is special man". Sadly, this was practically the only representation rock music received Sunday night. "It's really about expressing yourself and putting that paint on the canvas for the world to evolve for the next generation and the next".
Lamar has delivered outstanding performances on the Grammy stage before. "You're the reason I'm in the studio pulling my hair out". He's feeling the gospel truth tonight, folks. The "HUMBLE." rapper thanked TDE, Interscope, and Rihanna. Corden said she got the job and was a sure victor.
