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

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

One day, perhaps, a Grammy-winner or presenter will joke that a song takes them way back to a time when hip-hop didn't account for the awards in the show's top categories, But the results of Sunday's 3½-hour telecast suggest that day may be a long way from now. Lamar started off with "XXX", before he was joined on stage by The Edge and Bono of U2.

Childish Gambino, the alter ego of actor Donald Glover, won his first ever Grammy for "Redbone" which was named best traditional R&B performance. His other Grammys include last year's album of the year for "25", and record of the year and best pop duo/group performance for "Uptown Funk" in 2016.

Lamar follows close behind with seven and both are up for the top honours of record of the year and album of the year.

Kendrick Lamar has scooped an early Grammy award in his race against hip-hop veteran Jay-Z.

Americana favorite Jason Isbell picked up Best American Roots Song for "If We Were Vampires" and Best Americana Album for "The Nashville Sound", while Aimee Mann took home Best Folk Album for "Mental Illness". Less expected was a win for Philadelphia band The War On Drugs for "A Deeper Understanding", released in August 2017. That speech capped a night when Mars managed a rare sweep of the major awards, a feat also accomplished previous year, when Adele beat Jay Z's wife, Beyoncé, in each of the major categories.

Alongside Cardi B, Mars performed the song Finesse on music's biggest stage, bringing the crowd to their feet. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee were up for "Despacito" featuring Justin Bieber, Logic's uplifting song about suicide prevention, "1-800-273-8255" featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid was up as well.

Chris Stapleton won three awards, including best country album, best country song and best country solo performance.

Monae, introducing a performance by Kesha, also called "Time's Up" on the "abuse of power", saying the music industry is also affected by sexual harassment. Singers Halsey and Dua Lipa, as well as Grammy-nominated rapper Rapsody, were some of the first to say they would wear white roses.

There were numerous nods to the East Coast location of New York City at this year's ceremony.

And country artists Brothers Osborne, Eric Church and Maren Morris, who appeared at the Las Vegas country music festival where 58 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded last October, will mark the victims of gun violence and extremist attacks at music events.
