Bruno Mars swept the major categories at the 60th Grammy Awards, claiming the trifecta of song, record and album of the year categories. Many expected Kendrick Lamar or Jay-Z — each heavily nominated acts — to take home the top prize. Lamar, who opened the ceremony with a fiery performance, cleaned up in five categories, including rap/sung performance and rap album. Other highlights during the telecast included Janelle Monáe’s impassioned call to action when introducing Kesha’s performance and Hillary Clinton’s surprise appearance in one of host James Corden’s prerecorded segments to read a portion of the Trump book “Fire and Fury.”

Janelle Monáe opened a poignant Time’s Up segment on Sunday’s Grammys with an impassioned call to action.
We say Time’s Up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind and the abuse of power. Just as we have the power to shape culture, we also have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well… We come in peace, but we mean business.
