Rihanna performs during the 60th Annual Grammy Awards

The song-and-dance man from Hawaii won all six awards he was nominated for on Sunday night, including the three most prestigious Grammys for song ("That's What I Like"), record ("24K Magic") and album of the year.

Grammys gonna Grammy. That's Takeaway #1. Kesha was introduced by a statement from Janelle Monáe, who told the audience that the time for sexual harassment and sexual coercion was over. "Praying" was inspired by Kesha's legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke.

Of the different musical genres to be represented in the roster of Album of the Year winners, pop is the most popular with 22 wins. "It also speaks to the more global sound of pop this year, the emphasis on Latin music", he noted.

There was no hip hop hurray Sunday night.

He'd win Song of the Year and Record of the Year for the omnipresent singles "24K Magic" and "That's What I Like", respectively, instead of those big "general field" trophies going to more significant tunes (like "1-800-273-8255").

Bruno Mars ended up taking home the event's most coveted prizes for his album "24K Magic" - despite the fact that "DAMN" outperformed its competitor both critically and commercially. Then Bono and The Edge returned to present the Album of the Year trophy.

#5: SZA's five losses will sting for a while.

#6: Same goes for the absence of Lorde. She can be an extremely compelling live performer. They performed a touching acoustic cover of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" as the names of the victims were shown on screen.

They would also be youngest prizes.

The usual sense of disappointment was amplified by a new factor. No, he wasn't nominated for any awards.

#8: Who needs a host?

- Best rock album: "A Deeper Understanding", The War on Drugs.

"Tonight I am proud to stand in solidarity ... with my fellow sisters in this room", Monáe declared.

"I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it", she tweeted.

#9: Country got to mourn, and not much else.

Lamar had lost his second of three bids for Album of the Year to Swift in 2016.

The smooth R&B singer and songwriter Jhené Aiko has followed former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's lead and donated $10,000 to charity, directing funds to a Southern California-based rolling schoolroom called School on Wheels.

He beat out the global sensation "Despacito" as well as songs by rappers Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino.
