Music biggest Night! Full list of winners at #Grammys 2018

Jan 29, 2018 |

So hours ago, the Recording Academy announced several winners ahead of the 60th Grammy Awards show, hosted by James Corden. Ed Sheeran, who was snubbed out of major categories, picked up the award for pop vocal album, while Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars, who were up for album of the year, won three Grammy Awards each — and they each performed too. Country star Chris Stapleton, who also performed, picked up two Grammys. One will have to leave it to Riri who completely stole the show without even having an album in contention. She not only won her 9th Grammy for her collaboration with Kendrick, she also had one of the most talked about performances of the night.

She blessed the audience with a wonderfully theatrical performance of her DJ Khaled-helmed summer jam “Wild Thoughts”, Rihanna basically broke the internet when she ended the show with the South African dance, Gwara Gwara, backed by dance crew, A.V.O Boyz (aka Africa’s Very Own Boyz).

Nigerian/Ghanaian dance crew headed by Stephen Ojo was appreciative by thanking her for allowing him teach the African dance for her 2018 Grammys performance.
