The 61st Annual Grammy Awards was held on Sunday night in Los Angeles, and women and hip-hop took home the top honors of the evening.
Kacey Musgraves, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, and Childish Gambino were among Sunday’s big winners. Musgraves took home one of the four biggest awards of the night, album of the year, in addition to almost sweeping the country categories with three additional wins. Gambino’s “This Is America” made history, nabbing hip hop’s first-ever wins in the song of the year and record of the year categories. Cardi B became the first solo woman to win a rap album Grammy.
Brandi Carlile, with seven Grammy nominations, was one of Sunday’s early winners, winning all three of the awards she was up for in the pre-telecast ceremony.
Lady Gaga also won big with three awards, and Drake took home the trophy for best rap song for “God’s Plan.” Dua Lipa was named best new artist.
Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy winner herself, hosted the ceremony -- which featured many amazing performances, and even a guest-appearance by former First Lady Michele Obama.
