Bruno Mars won big at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards last night taking home six trophies including Album and Record of the year for 24K Magic.

Kendrick followed with 5 awards taking Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. 

Other winners on the night were Ed Sheeran, Childish Gambino, Alessia Cara and The Weeknd.

Here's some of their stand out acceptance speeches:

Bruno Mars - Album Of The Year (24K Magic)

"First of all, to the other nominees in this category: Lorde, Kung Fu Kenny, Jay Z, Gambino, you guys are the reason I'm in the studio pulling my hair out because I know you guys are only going to come with top shelf artistry and music."

Bruno Mars - Record Of The Year (24K magic)

"To my lady Jessica, I love you. Thank you for being rock and being by my side this whole process. To my father watching this, Dad I love you."

Bruno Mars - Song Of The Year (That's What I Like)

"I've been knowing these guys for over a decade. The music business horror stories you see in the movies, we've been through all of it. This is the first time, on this album, that we all came collectively as a group and put this song together and put this album together so fellas, it's an honour to share this with y'all tonight."

Alessia Cara - Best New Artist

"There are some incredible artists out there that are making incredible music, that deserve to be acknowledged that don't always get acknowledged because of popularity contests or number games and that's kind of unfortunate so I just wanted to encourage everyone to support real music and real artists because everyone deserves the same shot."

Kendrick Lamar - Best Rap Album (DAMN)

"This is a special award because of rap, music. This is the thing that got me on this stage. It got me a tour all around the world, supporting my family and all that. Most importantly it showed me a true definition of what being an artist was.
