Record of the year: "24K Magic", Bruno Mars.

Mars previously won Record of the Year two years ago as the featured artist on Mark Ronson's equally giddy "Uptown Funk".

"To those who would dare try to silence us, we offer two words: Time's Up". Midway through Lamar's medley (which also included DNA, New Freezer and King's Dead, and dancers in red hoodies dropping to the sound of gunshots) a nervous Chappelle checked back in to ask, "Is this OK. with CBS?"

LAMAR WAS joined by U2 for a snippet of "American Soul" and DAVE CHAPPELLE for some on-stage encouragement for a rousing opening tonight. Their names appeared written on stained glass windows as "Tears in Heaven" played.

Bruno Mars on Sunday won the Grammy for Record of the Year for his party anthem "24K Magic", the first time the funk revivalist has won the USA industry's award for top song on his own.

In 2014, an Instagram post of white rapper Macklemore's text apologizing to Lamar for winning best rap album went viral.

"She came through and gassed on that record, gassed me on my own song or what not".

McEntire won an early Grammy for best roots gospel album for, "Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope".

Rob Gronkowski doesn't have podium for Super Bowl LII Opening Night
The Patriots capped the drive with a Brady touchdown pass to James White , starting the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. The Patriots dug deep into their bag of tricks, lining up in unusual ineligible receiver formations, and calling a gadget play.

"I know that song!" The GRAMMYs may rue overlooking her for BEST NEW ARTIST.

Kesha, a best pop vocal album nominee who has been battling her former record producer Dr.Luke for years in USA courts over allegations of emotional and sexual abuse, is expected to perform her emotional single "Praying" with Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels and a full choir.

Chris Stapleton won three awards, including best country album, best country song and best country solo performance.

But the night's top performer was Kesha, who gave a passionate performance with the help of powerful women behind her, including the Resistance Revival Chorus.

The Rolling Stones picked up the third Grammy of their career - for best traditional blues album for "Blue & Lonesome", while Ed Sheeran won best pop vocal album. But Lamar tipped his hat to the elder star, declaring "Jay for president!" as he collected the best rap album award.

Best alternative music album: "Sleep Well Beast", The National.

Best urban contemporary album: "Starboy", The Weeknd.

But of course, it wouldn't be "music's biggest night" without fans criticizing the Recording Academy for snubbing artists who were also deserving of those awards.
