Bruno Mars takes home 6 Grammy Awards in big win

Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars are among the early winners at the Grammy Awards

He also won the best pop vocal album for "Unorthodox Jukebox" in 2014.

Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z entered the night with a field-leading eight nominations, including for Album, Record and Song of the Year.

Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars are among the early winners at the Grammy Awards.

Kesha, who earned her first pair of Grammy nominations this year, has been in a legal war with former producer and mentor Dr. Luke.

It was the only category the singer was nominated for and she was the only nominee reportedly not offered a solo performance at the ceremony.

Pop sensation Shakira took home the Best Latin Pop Album award for "El Dorado" at the 60th Grammy Awards.

Lady Gaga also performed and told the broadcast "time's up" during performances of Joanne and Million Reasons in a reference to the anti-sexual harassment initiative. Inspired by the black dress initiative at this year's Golden Globes, Eve, Rita Ora, Cyndi Lauper and Lana Del Ray were among the many women who chose to accessorise their dresses with the rose.

You can lead 13,000 Grammy Award voters to hip-hop, but you can't make them cast their ballots for it - at least not when it comes to the most prestigious categories in the world's most prestigious annual music awards fete. But a call-to-arms by Janelle Monáe, and an emotional performance by Kesha, approached it head-on.

It comes a year after The Recording Academy was heavily criticized when Adele won album of the year over Beyonce.

Hillary Clinton made a unadvertised cameo in a video sketch with Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and others pretending to audition to record the audio version of Michael Wolf's popular book about President Trump's first year in office, "Fire and Fury".

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.

- Best new artist: Alessia Cara.

- Best traditional pop vocal album: "Tony Bennett Celebrates 90", various artists. - Best urban contemporary album: "Starboy" - The Weeknd.

Best Rap Album also went to Lamar.

"Lamar mixed in elements of his songs "DNA", King's Dead" and "American Soul" with artful dancing, gun shots and pyrotechnics surrounding him.

Little Big Town, who beautifully sang their Taylor Swift-penned No. 1 hit "Better Man", won best country duo/group performance with the song.

"This song is about me finding peace in the fact that I can't control everything - because trying to control everyone was killing me", she wrote a year ago.

- Best dance/electronic album: '3-D The Catalogue'. - Best jazz instrumental album: "Rebirth", Billy Childs.

- Best compilation soundtrack for visual media: 'La La Land'.
