Rock is left behind as hip-hop chimes with the mainstream — Grammys

Last night, Bruno Mars and Cardi B basically stole the Grammys.

"I just want to say there are some incredible artists out there making music that deserve to be acknowledged that don't always get acknowledged because of popularity contests or numbers games and that's kind of unfortunate", she said.

The rapper had some words of encouragement for women, victims of abuse and immigrants. Despite the fact that his latest album 24k Magic was certified double platinum in the U.S. last year, in December the New Yorker's Amanda Petrusich wrote a piece called "Weirdly We Might Be Overlooking Bruno Mars". And with such a strong hip-hop field, led by Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z, 2018 seemed like the Grammys where voters would finally take the genre seriously, hopefully with a long-overdue album of the year win.

Dancing on stage in colorful outfits straight from the 90s, the duo rocked the house with their hit song "Finesse".

Kendrick Lamar won several Grammys including Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. He has a career total of 12 Grammys. He sang about showing off the woman he's with, as if she's an object to be rated.

As one person put it: "She needs to shave that stomach".

This cheeky line goes best with a cute photo of you and your boo.

"It's not just going in Hollywood", Monae announced during the show. "It's right here in our industry as well".

John began the song, sitting a piano topped with a white rose, symbol of the "Time's Up" movement.

If Sunday's nails, which reportedly still took more than two hours to do, were considered less intricate than usual, what do some of Jenny's more over-the-top creations look like?

The performances were two of the show's serious moments.

Expect tons of likes - and tons of copycats.

Logic performed his suicide prevention anthem "1-800-273-8255". And it was the original version minus young Biebs, so all was good.

Sting's performance was somewhat political as he sang his 1987 song, "Englishman in New York", which includes the lyrics, "Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien, I'm an Englishman in New York".

So one has to wonder: How seriously is the entertainment industry taking this equality thing?

People downtown guessed Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift would be the big winners.

Side note: And after years of being scarred by Miley Cyrus, Cardi has made it okay to stick out your tongue again. The said portrait was sent by Fashion Nova, and it is huge!

Sexuality and female objectification were on full display Sunday night. However, Bieber's absence at the Grammys is nothing new as he also did not attend the event a number of times in the past.

The 25-year-old Bodak Yellow singer showed up at Madison Square Garden in a dramatic, white structural dress by designer Ashi, that reportedly took 150 hours to make.
