In the words of Pitbull, “They can’t, they won’t, they never will, stop the party.” Sounds like the mantra for Grammys night.
Once again, music’s big night could be heard around the world as the industry’s brightest stars gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate what they do best.
Childish Gambino and Kacey Musgraves led the pack of winners this year with four statues each while Cardi Bmade history at the 2019 Grammys as the first female solo winner to take home Best Rap Album on her first win. Lady Gaga used her victory as a chance highlight mental health at the microphone and Michelle Obama wowed the crowd with a surprise appearance. Plus, the show paid special tribute to icon Dolly Parton, Diana Ross and the late icon Aretha Franklinalong with a commemoration of Motown—and those were just some of the dozens of performances that filled the stage throughout the jam-packed night. Needless to say, it was quite the award show and there was plenty of reason to keep the celebration going once it was time for the show to sign off.
You can bet the stars did just that. After changing out of their designer duds and into cool ensembles worthy of the after-party scene, they headed out into the city to party at the hot spots.
