60th Grammy Awards gets political, Bruno wins big, and Jay-Z gets snubbed


As a symbol of standing in solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, stars don white roses to the 60th Grammy Awards.

But, it was a single "rose" that absolutely captivated the audience.

Kesha Rose, better known by just her first name Kesha, delivered an emotional performance with her song "Praying." The song stole the show and featured a chorus of women, including Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha and Camila Cabello.

Afterwards, Cabello paid tribute to "Dreamers."

“Tonight, in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was made by dreamers, for dreamers, chasing the American dream,” the former Fifth Harmony member said. Read her full speech here

Another touching tribute honors those lost in concert tragedies, with country stars Eric Church, Maren Morris and country duo Brothers Osborne singing Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven."

Logic, Khalid, and Best New Artist of Year Grammy winner Alessia Cara were joined on stage by a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors singing Logic's song "1-800-273-8255." The song's name is the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Logic later addressed President Trump's reported comments over African countries.

"Everybody is beautiful and the world isn't equal and we need to fight towards that," the rapper said. His full speech can be found here

Politics surfaced again in the cameo featuring Hillary Clinton, who appeared in a sketch of Grammys' host James Cordon auditioning narrators for "Fire and Fury." 

Sir Elton John, about to embark on his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour, joined an elegant Miley Cyrus with a duet of "Tiny Dancer."

What's the Grammy Awards without some actual awards being given out? 

Kendrick Lamar took home five Grammys, including one for Best Music Video for "Humble."

But of course the biggest winner of them all was none other than Bruno Mars with the clean sweep.

He won all six Grammy's he was nominated for, including the coveted awards of Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year.

Even after receiving the most grammy noms, Jay-Z went home with nothing to show for it. But he did get a presidential nod from Kendrick.

Have you ever head of a little song called "Despacito?" The Latin hit featuring Justin Bieber got no love.
