The 2016 Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night, honoring the best in the fields of pop, rap, country and more. Performance highlights included an instant classic from Kendrick Lamar and Alabama Shakes, along with a crowd-pleasing turn from the cast of Hamilton. Tributes to David Bowie, B.B. King and Lionel Ritchie were both moving and entertaining, but they couldn't make up for the nearly interminable run time of the telecast.
