Kendrick Lamar backs Jay-Z for president as he dominates Grammys

Jay-Z performs on the 4:44 Tour at Barclays Center in New York. The rapper was nominated for eight Grammy nominations on Tuesday Nov. 28. Four of the five album of the year nominees at the 2018 Grammys are rap and R&B-ba

Hip-hop maverick Kendrick Lamar, who opened Sunday's show with explosive power - and was briefly joined by U2's Bono and The Edge - had seven nominations and took home five trophies, including the Best Rap Album Award. And it is that division that Jay-Z and Lamar so eloquently addressed on their Grammy-nominated albums. All were worthy of the award, but as he so often does, K. Dot ultimately prevailed. "She came through and gassed me on my that record-gassed me up on my own song and whatnot, man, so this really belongs to her, real talk".

"This is special man".

- Album of the year: '24K Magic, ' Bruno Mars.

Little Big Town, who sang their Taylor Swift-penned No. 1 hit "Better Man", also won best country duo/group performance with the song. Less expected was a win for Philadelphia band The War On Drugs for "A Deeper Understanding", released in August 2017.

And country artists Brothers Osborne, Eric Church and Maren Morris, who appeared at the Las Vegas country music festival where 51 people and more than 500 were wounded last October, will mark the victims of gun violence and extremist attacks at music events.

Lamar won in the music video category for his track HUMBLE., beating Jay-Z's The Story Of O.J. during the pre-televised ceremony on Sunday afternoon. And the Grammys are nearly guaranteeing that this year will be historic: Four of the five album of the year nominees are rap and R&B-based albums from black or Latino artists.

The viral dance hit that has broken the record for views on YouTube is in the running for both Record of the Year, which recognizes best tune, and Song of the Year, which awards songwriters.

Janelle Monae may have provided one of the most memorable speeches as she took time to call out the Time's Up and #MeToo movements (which are working to end sexual harassment, sexual abuse and inequality in the workplace) during her introduction for Kesha's emotional performance of "Praying."

R&B sensation SZA was the most nominated woman of the night but lost all five awards for which she was nominated, including Best New Artist, which was won by Alessia Cara. "24K Magic" was also awarded Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) and Best R&B Album. "I'm honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys".

Puppies were passed to the losers of best comedy album, including Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman and Jim Gaffigan.

The Grammys is airing live from Madison Square Garden.

Double winners included Jason Isbell, Justin Hurwitz, CeCe Winans and Chris Stapleton.
