Star performer Bruno Mars" single "That's What I Like' won the Song of the Year honour at the 60th Grammy Awards here.

Kesha delivered the most powerful performance of her career as she sang "Praying", backed by a chorus of women in white, with her emotions raw on her face and in her voice.

"The "HUMBLE." rapper showed why he stands alone at the top of hip-hop at Sunday night's GRAMMY Awards, putting on a medley performance of several songs including "New Freezer", King's Dead" and "DNA.", where a surprise appearance by U2 was just the beginning.

Lamar's Humble.won best music video, beating rapper Jay-Z, while Mars scored for best engineered album with 24K Magic as celebrities began their way down the red carpet in NY for the main part of the show.

"She came through and gassed me on my that record-gassed me up on my own song and whatnot, man, so this really belongs to her, real talk".

"I remember seeing it firsthand-people dancing that had never met each other from two sides of the globe, dancing with each other, toasting with each other, celebrating together", he said.

The deal was rumoured to potentially include French Olivier Giroud as a makeweight, however Wenger has ruled that out, addressing the striker's future.

Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z entered the night with a field-leading eight nominations, including for Album, Record and Song of the Year.

Dae has shared in seven previous Grammy wins for his father, but the nomination Sunday - for best traditional pop album - was exclusively in his name.

But the industry either preferred Mars, or the vote for rappers split. "I got a lot of guys in this building that I still idolize today", said Lamar, naming Jay-Z, Nas and Diddy as inspirations.

Kendrick Lamar for the second time swept all rap categories but failed to win the general prizes.

Minutes later, Lamar and Rihanna won the first award of the night: Best Rap/Sung Performance for "Loyalty".

24K Magic also won for record of the year, the category that recognizes the artist's performance combined with overall contributions of the producers, recording engineers and mixers.

How to watch the 'blue moon' lunar eclipse
Moreover, it is going to be the first blue moon eclipse in 2018, and this is why many are calling it as "Super Blue Blood Moon ". Mark your calendars for January 20, 2019: a total lunar eclipse will start in the evening and run into the early morning hours.

"I've been pretend-winning Grammys since I was a kid in my shower", the 21-year-old from suburban Toronto told the gala. The performance, with best new artist victor Alessia Cara and Khalid, included a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Popular music sensations like John Legend, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and The Chainsmokers, among others, looked stunning as they walked down the red carpet.

"I want to treat you like I want to be treated".

A clutch of female vocalists including Cyndi Lauper offered her both symbolic and literal support, with Kesha embracing the group in a bear-hug as she finished.

The evening had a welcome political edge to it, with Janelle Monae's intro to Kesha nearly overshadowing the emotional catharsis that followed.

The Grammys didn't hold back from more light-hearted political commentary. The last person to read, however, was the most shocking as it was former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
