"Blessed are the shithole countries, for they gave us the American Dream", the singer yelled from a barge in front of the Statue of Liberty at the end of his performance.

And the Grammys acted accordingly, giving Lamar the stage to open Sunday night's ceremony.

Lamar is a seven-time Grammy victor and has seven nominations this year: record of the year, best rap performance, best rap song, best music video ("HUMBLE."), album of the year and best rap album (DAMN.), as well as best rap/sung performance ("LOYALTY." featuring Rihanna).

The rapper concluded his speech with a shout-out to eight-time 2018 nominee JAY-Z.

The Hawaiian-born artist also won for best R&B performance for That's What I Like and best R&B album for 24K Magic . Rapper Logic led a song calling attention to a suicide prevention hotline, joined by Alessia Cara and Khalid.

Contempt petition in SC against Karni Sena
In Madhya Pradesh, members of various organisations, including the Karni Sena , staged protests in Indore and some other towns. Former Rajasthan governor Margaret Alva says decision regarding watching the film " Padmaavat " should be left to individuals.

British success came from Ed Sheeran whose album Divide won in the pop vocal album category but the 26-year-old was not available to collect the honour presented during the pre-televised show. As Lamar rapped, each of the dancers fell to the ground as gunshot sounds played over the performance.

The performance blew both audience members and viewers away, with Run the Jewels' El-P tweeting: "Kendrick Lamar is a national treasure".

The symbolic move was proposed earlier this week by music executives to support the movements that followed the revelations starting with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's downfall.

Nominated for Best Comedy Album for his two Netflix specials Heart of Texas and The Age of Spin, Dave beat out peers that included Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, and Jim Gaffigan.
