Grammys: Zelensky Speaks (Watch Video), Best Song to Bruno Mars, Perfect In Memoriam


Ukrainian president Zelenskyy did give a beautiful speech tonight tailored just to the Grammys. Watch it below. This column broke the news that Zelenskyy would appear on the show hours earlier.

Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak won Best Song for “Leave the Door Open” as their group, Silk Sonic.

The Grammys offered maybe the most perfect In Memoriam segment in ages, a tribute culminating in a finale to Stephen Sondheim. Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr, and Rachel Zegler sang a medley of Sondheim songs and it was outstanding.

Keep refreshing and stand by a for a full list of winners.
