The Grammy Awards seemed poised to make this a triumphant year for rap at music's showcase event -- until Bruno Mars crashed the party.The Grammys on Sunday also saw Kendrick Lamar win five awards, Jay-Z go home empty-handed, some memorable performances by the likes of Lamar, Kesha, Mars and Logic, an odd oversight of singer Lorde and a surprise cameo from Hillary Clinton.Mars has won 11 Grammys in his career.Beyond being a critical favorite, Lamar seemed primed to be the evening's star. He opened the Grammys with a hard-hitting medley that depicted black dancers falling to the floor to symbolize being shot, and won the night's first televised award. Lamar paid tribute to Jay-Z ("Jay-Z for president," he said with a smile) and other forebears in accepting a Grammy.Kesha was joined by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, Andra Day and others in a performance of her Grammy-nominated song "Praying," which is about fighting back from abuse.No rock awards were given during the televised portion of the Grammys.Chris Stapleton won three Grammys in country categories.As it has in recent years, the Grammys downplayed the awards for performances by the industry's biggest stars.
