Bruno Mars Sweeps Top Prizes at the 2018 Grammy Awards

The 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday gave its highest accolades to Bruno Mars, an upbeat master of danceable pop, even as the show wrestled with a range of social and political topics including immigration, race and the #MeToo movement.

Mr. Mars won all six of the awards he was nominated for, including the top prizes of album, record and song of the year. The next most rewarded artist was Kendrick Lamar, the provocative and critically admired rapper from Compton, Calif., whose five wins included a sweep of the rap categories.

Sometimes talking about all the things you like and jumping in the Cadillac to go cruising with your girl is all you need to get by. At Sunday night's (Jan. 28) 2018 Grammy Awards that was more than enough for Bruno Mars, who took home the song of the year songwriter's award for his catalog of all his favorite things, "That's What I Like."

Mars, who came into the night as the third-most nominated act with six nods -- and who already took home best R&B performance and best R&B song for "That's What I Like" and best R&B album for 24K Magic earlier in the evening -- took the stage in dark aviator shades, a sparkling purple jacket and black jeans to pay homage to his crew of over a decade while holding the golden gramophone aloft as his seven-man gang of co-winners sprayed out behind him.

"All the music business horror stories you see in the movies we've been through all of it," he said with a smile. "And this is the first time on this album that we all came collectively as a group and put this song together and put the album together, so fellas it's an honor to share this with ya'll tonight. These are my brothers." Mars then introduced his co-writers, who included Christopher Brody Brown, James Fauntleroy, Philip Lawrence and the Stereotypes -- Ray Charles McCullough II, Jeremy Reeves, Ray Romulus & Jonathan Yip.

The win was all the sweeter since it bested the year's most inescapable hit, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," as well as such stiff competition as JAY-Z's emotional "4:44," Julia Michael's raw "Issues" and Logic's moving anti-suicide anthem "1-800-273-8255."
