Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga open Grammys

Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga open Grammys

Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and other recording stars pretended to audition for the audio version of Michael Wolf's popular book about President Trump's first year in office, "Fire and Fury" in a prerecorded video sketch. His second year hosting the Grammys, promised he was "going to try and not ruin" the show. Kesha, who experienced a huge commercial and critical resurgence in 2017, will intersect with the #MeToo movement when she sings her hit ballad "Praying" - that could be a show-stopper, for sure.

Kendrick Lamar managed to beat out the incredibly challenging competition this year including hip-hop veterans like Jay-Z.

Here's why: An army of hooded soldiers marched in front of an American flag, with Lamar slouched in the middle, crouching to the ground, when U2's Bono and the Edge emerged.

As Dave Chappelle notes, in an on-stage aside: "I just wanted to remind the audience that the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest black man in America".

The Belgian joined Chelsea's youth set-up from Anderlecht in 2012 and was sent to Real Betis to get some experience of first-team football.

Rihanna thanked the 30-year-old for giving her the opportunity to work on the song. "This really belongs to her".

After Kendrick Lamar brought the fury, Lady Gaga brought the feels with a beautifully understated performance of Joanne, the title track of her latest album. "Hip-hop has done that". "Real talk. That's love".

Alessia Cara won for best new artist. Each year, the Grammys provide a window into how the music business wishes to see itself, which in turn makes each telecast a surprisingly useful snapshot. Above all, they're a music-industry showcase and infomercial, stuffed with three and a half hours of live performances meant to spark social-media conversation - and, by extension, sales, streams and TV ratings.

And country artists Brothers Osborne, Eric Church and Maren Morris, who appeared at the Las Vegas country music festival where 58 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded last October, will mark the victims of gun violence and extremist attacks at music events.
