Bruno Mars, Kesha, Kendrick Lamar See Streaming Gains After 2018 Grammys

This year's Grammys were the first to enact various voting and process changes after audience backlash from the last three years. Really sir? So Kesha, who has worked to transform her whole image and deliver one of the most deeply personal albums about her sexual abuse didn't step up? The next "American Idiot", replete with melody and message, can only occur if the Recording Academy awards those who are attempting to emulate that singular combination.

Perhaps the most powerful performances of the night came from Lamar and Kesha.

Another possibility for Mars' victory is that, with multiple hip-hop stars in competition, he benefited from a split in the vote.

I now can't wait for the Oscars.

"We come in peace but we mean business", said singer and actress Janelle Monae, whose magnificent speech introduced the performance. "I mean I have to say they're trying to fix this but it's not something that gets fixed overnight", DeCurtis said. Kendrick Lamar then ended his performance set with a literal 'bang' as fake gunshot sounds filled the arena and his dancers crashed down to the floor. It is a trend that stayed true to its Grammy course. You guys, I love you with all my heart. And then there was the aforementioned Kendrick Lamar, who was nominated in the same category in 2015. I was so intent on transferring that I was unwilling to consider any alternative options.

"African American tradition does not always have to be protest".

The competition for Song of the Year was pretty stiff this go around.

Posthumous Grammys were awarded to actress Carrie Fisher, singer Leonard Cohen and engineer Tom Coyne, who worked on Mars' "24K Magic" album.

Hillary Clinton made an unadvertised cameo in a video sketch with Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and others pretending to audition to record the audio version of Michael Wolff's popular book about President Trump's first year in office, "Fire and Fury". This, to support those two movements. When all things are considered, 24K Magic isn't a bad album. He is only the ninth artist to win the record, song and album of the year trifecta, a select group that includes Adele and Simon & Garfunkel.

Throughout the night, we began to see deeper issues with the award show. It is much more complicated than that; award shows do not make decisions on objective quality alone.

This is not shade at Kendrick. His column, "At Song Last", runs every other Thursday.
