Bruno Mars has a magical night at Grammys, winning 6 for 6

His show-opening performance at Sunday's Grammy Awards earned him a standing ovation from the audience at Madison Square Garden and plenty of praise on social media. Jay-Z went 0 for 8 in his nominations, despite being feted with the Recording Academy's Industry Icons award at Clive Davis' party the night before.

American stand-up comedian and actor Dave Chappelle won Best Comedy Album and American singer-songwriter, producer Lisa Loeb was also a first-time Grammy victor for Best Children's Album.

Last August, Lamar talked to Rolling Stone about why, despite being incredibly political in his music, he doesn't often speak about President Donald Trump.

"We come in peace but we mean business".

Sting's performance was somewhat political as he sang his 1987 song, "Englishman in NY", which includes the lyrics, "Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien, I'm an Englishman in NY".

"We already know what it is", he said.

Take a look back at all of the action at the 60th #GRAMMYs.

The Nielsen company said the 19.8 million estimated viewers represented a 24 percent decline from 2017, and the awards show's smallest audience since 2009.

British talent were left out of the major categories but Ed Sheeran's Divide is up for best pop vocal album while his track Shape Of You is nominated for best pop solo performance.

Musicians have started to arrive on the red carpet wearing white roses in a display of solidarity with the anti-sexual harassment Me Too movement. The furry fortune tellers unanimously chose Mars' "24K Magic" as the top dog.

Best rock album: A Deeper Understanding, The War on Drugs. The show itself began with Lamar giving a politically charged performance - a "satire" as he called - in front of an American flag and with men dressed in military uniform.
