Childish Gambino, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Gaga Win Big At 2019 Grammy

18 minutes ago | General News Childish Gambino, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Gaga Win Big At 2019 Grammy By Modern Ghana Kacey Musgraves and Childish Gambino

Kacey Musgraves and Childish Gambino led the 61st Annual Grammy Awards with four wins each. Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover picked up the Best Music Video award for his socially-conscious single, “This Is America.” The song also won Best Rap/Sung Performance, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Glover did not attend the show.

Country star Musgraves’s four awards included Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies,” Best Country Song for “Space Cowboy,” Best Country Album for “Golden Hour” and Album of the Year for “Golden Hour.”

After picking up the album of the year honor, Musgraves praised the other artists nominated in the category.

“Winning this doesn’t make my album any better than anyone else’s,” she said.

Lady Gaga followed with three awards, including the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance honor for “Shallow,” with her A Star Is Born director and co-star Bradley Cooper.

The show kicked off Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with Camila Cabello delivering a powerful performance of her hit single Havana. She was joined by Latin music superstars, J Balvin, Ricky Martin and jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.

During her performance, Cuban-American singer Cabello was surrounded by backup dancers and an extra who held up a newspaper with the headline “Build Bridges Not Walls,” in an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s demand that Congress fund his border wall.

Alicia Keys, who was tapped to host the ceremony, then took the stage and introduced her “sisters” — Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, former first lady Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez, each of whom shared stories about music giving them strength and hope.

A total of 14 of the 84 Grammys were presented during the live broadcast, which started at 8pm ET. The rest of the awards were handed out during a pre-show hosted by Shaggy, that streamed live on grammy.com.
