Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar are big winners at 2018 Grammys

Bruno Mars was the big winner at last night's Grammys ceremony. 

The 24K Magic star won six awards, including song of the year, record of the year and album of the year. 

The singer's victory in the latter category came as a surprise as it denied heavy favourite Kendrick Lamar a win for his album Damn, but the rapper still walked away with five awards, including best rap album, best rap song and best rap performance.

Ed Sheeran also had a good night, winning the awards for best pop album and best pop solo performance, while there were also key wins for Mastodon, The War On Drugs and Alessia Cara, the only female winner of any of the major categories.
