We are loving this velvet jumpsuit outfit – it’s sexy without being too revealing, something that’s not always the case with this star.


Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover

Now this is how you rock white. Childish keeps it classy in a white tux and a stare no one can resist.


Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld’s get up is glam up top and party down below – this outfit is eye catching in all the best ways.


Cardi B

Cardi B gets to live out her princess dreams in a big, fluffy dress complete with all the jewels and her signature talons.


Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae may be wearing a suit but it’s as feminine as can be, with floral embroidering and a snug waist. It’s our favourite look of the night.


SZA

SZA’s hair and dress are glorious, just full of volume. Her dress is all sexy ethereal fabulousness. We can imagine the ‘swishing’ sound it makes when she moves.



The Biggest Moments

Stars showed up at the red carpet wearing white roses as a nod to the #MeToo movement that saw black dresses being worn at the Golden Globes.

Carrie Fisher received a posthumous Grammy for narrating her memoir The Princess Diarist, in the spoken word album category.

Music’s first family stole the spotlight while Camila Cabello gave a speech. When Bey and Jay started applauding, Blue Ivy told them to quiet down.


Kesha’s performance of Praying brought down the house and moved the audience to tears. Kesha performed the song with Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, and members of the Resistance Revival Chorus.

While Sarah Silverman, Jim Gaffigan and Jerry Seinfeld may not have won a Grammy for Best Comedy Album (they lost to Dave Chapelle), they’re still winners. Host James Corden announced he was giving puppies as consolation prizes to those who lost out on a statue.


Hilary Clinton had a surprise cameo in a video sketch about celebrities auditioning to record the audio version of Michael Wolf’s book Fire and Fury, which covers Donald Trump’s first year in office. Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and others also appeared in the sketch.
