Childish Gambino’s “This is America” took home both Record and Song Of The Year, though Donald Glover was not there to accept the awards. Dua Lipa won Best New Artist, which Cardi B took Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy — she’s the first solo female rapper to win in that category.
Lady Gaga was a big winner, with Best Pop Solo Performance for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin?)” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Shallow.”
Other winners included Ariana Grande for Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener, and the late Chris Cornell for Best Rock Performance for “When Bad Does Good” (which was accepted by his two kids). Taylor Swift fans were all ticked off because Reputation was virtually shut out (nominated only in the Best Pop Vocal Album category, which she lost to Ariana). Tay was actually at the BAFTA’s looking UHMAZING.
Host Alicia Keys played two pianos playing a medley of songs she wishes she wrote…
Some people were upset JLo was included in a Motown tribute…more on that HERE.
