  • Grammys 2018 White Roses For Equality On The Red Carpet

Mars was the big victor of the night with six awards and beating out leading nominee Jay-Z. As usual, Berklee College of Music dominated from behind the scenes - as producers, writers and engineers alums and faculty nabbed 26 nominations in 19 categories from song of the year to best musical theater album, to best Latin jazz album.

"Joanne" is also the name of her 2016 album, which was recognized at this year's Grammy Awards.

But that wasn't all.

Country music legend Reba McEntire, who branched across categories to win the Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album, said that the white rose amounted to a message to "treat people kindly".

Mars has won 11 Grammys in his career.

It comes a year after The Recording Academy was heavily criticized when Adele won album of the year over Beyonce. After new nomination review committees were implemented in June of 2017 for the fields of rap, contemporary instrumental and new age to diversify the nominee pool, hip-hop vet Jay Z walked into the Garden with the most nominations of any artist.

Chappelle won best comedy album during the televised show.
