Last night's big winners come as no surprise as they dominated the music charts last year. The night would not have been complete if breakout star Lil Nas X (Montero Lamar Hill) hadn't won for his sensational hit "Old Town Road." The country hip-hop crossover record won Lil Nas X GRAMMY Awards for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance as well as Best Music Video. He took to the stage to perform the hit track along with Billy Ray Cyrus. Big Nas even joined the artist on stage.

Big Wins, An Emotional Night

The winners humbly accepted their awards, but there was a somber overtone during to this year's GRAMMY Awards. In addition to honoring slain rapper and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle with two posthumous awards, attendees reacted to the news that NBA legend Kobe Bryant and several others, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, had passed away earlier in the day in a tragic helicopter crash.

Show host Alicia Keys and other stars took a moment on stage to honor the legacy of the late NBA genius. The singer was joined on stage by Boyz II Men as they sang "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday." She eloquently acknowledged that the Staples Center is "the house that Kobe Bryant built."
