Kendrick Lamar Lights The Stage On Fire With His Grammys Performance

Kendrick Lamar Lights The Stage On Fire With His Grammys Performance

Bruno Mars has been the big victor at Grammys - taking six awards, including a clean sweep of the big three prizes.

In the rock categories, The War On Drugs and The National were the big winners.

Her face intense and her voice ferocious, Kesha sang the autobiographical lyrics: "After everything you've done / I can thank you for how strong I have become".

The or great victor of night was Kendrick Lamar, who had won three Grammys before televised gala began.

Not only has the pop heartthrob's latest album won the most coveted prize of all at the Grammys, it has also been named Album of the Year, Best R&B Album, and Best Engineered Album in the Non-classical section.

Bruno Mars owned the Grammys with his R&B-inspired album "24K Magic", winning all six awards he was nominated for at a show where hip-hop was expected to have a historical night. While Mars basked in the golden light of his trophies for 24K Magic, Lamar's DAMN. would complete a different set of three as it joined Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, and To Pimp a Butterfly in the ranks of his masterpieces unfairly weighed by the Recording Academy. "I got a lot of guys in this building that I still idolize today", said Lamar, naming Jay-Z, Nas and Diddy as inspirations.

The National won best alternative album for Sleep Well Beast.

- Best pop vocal album: "Divide", Ed Sheeran. If I had to sum it all up I'd say that this year's Grammy Awards were disappointing and enjoyable and I wish they had ended earlier.

But for the awards, the feel-good Mars carried the night. Lamar's incendiary number was best interpretation of night. Pre-telecast awards went to Lamar and HBO's documentary "The Defiant Ones" profiling rap pioneer Dr. Dre and his longtime business partner, record mogul Jimmy Iovine. The most nominated, with eight, took none. His Grammy win Sunday brings him halfway to EGOT status - the title given to those who've won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award.

- Song of the year (songwriter's award): "That's What I Like".

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee are performing their hit "Despacito" at the Grammy Awards.

With the focus on performances over awards evident from the onset of the James Corden-hosted show - although there were a whopping 83 gongs to be handed out - there were many a boring moments.
