After an Earth-shattering performance with U2, Kendrick Lamar took home another win of the night, grabbing Best Rap/Sung Performance for "LOYALTY".

The most prestigious honor in music, the Grammy for Album of the Year honors "artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales, chart position, or critical reception".

His success, however, instantly became a target for second-guessers, similar to people befuddled last year when Adele won album of the year over Beyonce.

ED SHEERAN then won BEST POP SOLO VOCAL PERFORMANCE for "Shape Of You", and proved a no-show, perhaps an answer to his being snubbed in the major categories, before CHILDISH GAMBINO performed "Terrified" with soprano JD McCRARY, his young Simba co-star from "The Lion King", who sang the song on the BEST ALBUM contender, "Awaken, My Love!". 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. Dear Evan Hansen star (and Pitch Perfect alum) Ben Platt croons Somewhere from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story, followed by a salute to Andrew Lloyd Webber in the form of Patti LuPone tackling Evita showstopper Don't Cry for Me Argentina.

Neo-funk music got a big thumbs up at Sunday's 60th Grammy Awards.

The video ends with Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump in the bitter 2016 election. "These are my brothers".

She was joined by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, Andra Day and Bebe Rexha for her Grammy-nominated song, "Praying". "This is a wonderful room to be in", Stapleton says.

Added Evans: "We know how nearly impossible it is to make a great record". Shaggy shows up to make the thing 1,000 times cooler - and to add, "I'm a Jamaican in NY". Speaking to reporters backstage following her win, Cara commented: "I didn't expect this".

"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.
