Words: Tshiamo Seape

 

The 60th edition of music’s biggest prize, The Grammys, took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday night. It was the first time since 2003 that the ceremony had been held outside of Los Angeles bringing an extra special buzz to an already electric night. Diving straight in, let’s get to the big winners of the night. Bruno Mars was the star of the show putting on an unforgettable performance of “Finesse” featuring Cardi B. With Super Bowl Half Time Shows and yet another memorable Grammy performance under his belt the entertainer keeps proving why he is one of music’s most dynamic figures.

Performances aside Mr Mars also won the night, scooping up six awards including the trifectas of Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year, beating out the likes of Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Donald Glover.
