The 60th Annual Grammys: Highlights in Real Time!

Here’s what you missed…

  • Ed Sheeran wins best pop song with “Shape Of You,” but isn’t in attendance to accept the award!? What! Where are ya, Ed??

  • Childish Gambino‘s performance of “Terrified” featured the incredibly talented 13-year-old J.D. McCray and Ludwig Göransson, who sported a super cool, clear guitar. One of the most artistic performances

  • Kendrick Lamar is definitely taking home two awards tonight- best rap song and best rap album. However, after calling Jay-Z an inspirer, the camera shot to a not-so-thrilled looking Jay, who was also a nominee for the best rap album category

  • Janelle Monáe introduces Kesha with a heartfelt speech about fighting for female equality in the music industry. Kesha was joined on stage with dozens of female artists, as she gave the most passionate and tear-jerking performance of the night

  • Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg, and even Hillary Clinton “auditioned” for spoken word, reading passages from ‘Fire and Fury.’ Khaled threw in a few typical anotha one‘s.

  • Bruno Mars ends up–somewhat surprisingly–cleaning house! He beats Jay-Z, Kendrick, Lorde and Childish Gambino, among others, in his triple-win of Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year (not to mention also taking home Best R&B Performance, Best R&B song and Best R&B Album)
