    Not with "Bad" though. Jack-asses.

    Stevie Wonder is awesome, but he would show up at the opening of a phone booth, lol.

    The show ain't air in my country anymore, so I check out several performances. I hated to see my man Shawn and Wanya and Nate doin backvocal. Wished to hear their cover of "Let's Stay Together" live. Al Green woulda been pleased even more. Not saying Justin Timberlake sucked, he did alright.

    Thanx for the clip superstition. I didn't dig the song as its original version, but the live version sounds so much more fattened up and rich. Stevie turned it into a soulful, funky rendition right from the get-go. Them boys sound horrible trying to sing Superstition and they keep trying to clumsily switch it up to something rock-ish.
    This was in 1972 when I was 14 years old.
    They wanted me to sing a certain way
    and I knew they were wrong.

    not having watched the broadcast..let me get this straight. the most grammys won, this night by a single act, were won by a guy who is totally autotune? lil wayne? how ironic, if that is true.
    In Love of Money Land(Branca,sony,mainstream media), it's always a pride and snowy day.

    And, remember when the king of pop fired John Branca?

    Didn't know that. This is a bad look not becuz I don't dig Lil' Wayne personally but becuz among the Grammy voters, there are not many who can assess artistry of Hiphop. I know Hiphop heads wouldn't have let Tha Carter III end up winning the best rap album of the year.

    Post Cardi B The First Solo Female Rapper To Win “Best Rap Album” Grammy

    by M. Stephens February 11, 2019 Urban Islandz

    Cardi B, with husband Offset, accepts Best Rap Album for ‘Invasion of Privacy’ during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.

    Cardi B creates history at last night’s Grammy Awards.

    The “Money” rapper became the first solo female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album. Cardi B was speechless when her name was announced as the winner for the most covetous Grammy in the rap category. She took home the prize for her debut album Invasion Of Privacy while beating out competitions from Nipsey Hussle (Victory Lap), Travis Scott (Astroworld), and Pusha T (Daytona).

    Cardi B cracks a few jokes to break the ice as she was visibly shaking while accepting her award. “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she told the crowd while her husband Offset supported her on stage. She also sends a big shout-out to the late Mac Miller.

    Lauryn Hill was the last female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album in 1997 when she won the award as part of The Fugees for their classic album The Score.

    After winning her Grammy, Cardi B celebrated with her crew late last night. She posted a video on her Instagram where she thanked her fans and her team while turning up with Offset and her sister Hennessy Caroline. Her rap peers including Lil Kim and Remy Ma all congratulate her on her Grammy win.

    Default With ‘Black Panther’ and Childish Gambino Wins, Ludwig Göransson Sets a Grammy Record

    By Jon Burlingame February 11, 2019 Variety

    Ludwig Göransson’s Grammy wins Sunday night broke yet another record: The Swedish composer and collaborative partner with Childish Gambino became the first artist to win song of the year and best score soundtrack for projects in entirely different music genres.

    Göransson won for his “Black Panther” score and shared the song of the year Grammy with Donald Glover for co-writing the Childish Gambino song “This Is America.”

    He’d also been nominated for a third award, best R&B song, for co-penning another Childish Gambino song, “Feels Like Summer.” (“This is America” additionally won three other awards, for record of the year, best rap/sung performance and best music video.)

    There have been five occasions in Grammy history when the same composer won song of the year as well as original score: Ernest Gold (“Exodus,” in 1961), Henry Mancini (“Moon River” from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” 1962), Johnny Mandel (“The Shadow of Your Smile” from “The Sandpiper,” 1966), Marvin Hamlisch (“The Way We Were,” 1975) and Alan Menken (“A Whole New World” from “Aladdin,” 1994).

    But all of those instances involved a song and the movie that spawned it. Göransson won for a movie score but also managed to win for a song penned for an album unconnected to any film.

    What does this mean for Göransson’s chances at the Oscars Feb. 24? Observers think it could bode well by calling greater attention to the score (substantial portions of which were recorded in West Africa to give Wakanda a more authentic sound), as voting for the Oscars begins on Tuesday.

    But it’s hardly a lock. Also winning at the Grammys on Sunday was Terence Blanchard, the composer for Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman.” Blanchard won best instrumental composition for “Blood and Soil,” a track from the “BlacKkKlansman” soundtrack (beating, among others, movie tracks by John Williams, Alexandre Desplat, John Powell and Alan Silvestri).

    Blanchard received his first Oscar nomination for “BlacKkKlansman,” after scoring films for Lee since 1991’s “Jungle Fever.” He’s also the first African-American composer to be nominated in that category since Herbie Hancock for 1986’s “Round Midnight.”

    Also up for score honors at the Oscars are the music from “Mary Poppins Returns,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Isle of Dogs.” Lady Gaga’s “Shallow,” which won two Grammys Sunday (best song written for visual media and best pop duo/group performance), is widely favored to win song honors at the Oscars.

    Kendrick Lamar’s “Black Panther” companion album was nominated for seven Grammys but won only one, best rap performance for the album track “King’s Dead.” That album’s far better known single “All the Stars,” nominated for record and song of the year (and currently nominated for a Best Song Oscar), failed to win a Grammy.
