Grammy Awards 2018: Every Look from the Red Carpet

Blue Ivy silences her parents, Kesha moves us all and Camila Cabello stands up for dreamers -- here are the moments everyone will be talking about Monday.

The Grammy Awards rocked the house on Sunday night, in a night filled with powerful performances, a few surprise (and controversial) winners and some serious style.

James Corden hosted the event, which moved from Los Angeles to New York City's Madison Square Garden for the first time since 2003.

Here's everything you need to know about music's biggest night:

Lil Uzi Vert Steals the Red Carpet

E!'s red carpet coverage of the Grammy Awards started trending when Lil Uzi Vert stopped by to talk to Giuliana Rancic.

The rapper was a man of few words and it was deliciously uncomfortable to watch.

One thing's for sure: The man loves his Pop-Tarts.

That Explosive Opening

Kendrick Lamar opened the show with a medley of singles from his multi-nominated album "DAMN," including "King’s Dead" and "XXX." The singer was briefly joined on stage by U2, as well as comedian Dave Chappelle, who broke up the songs by cracking a joke about being black in America.

"I just wanted to remind the audience that the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America, is being an honest black man in America," he joked.

The electrifying performances was followed with a quick show intro from James Corden, who joked, "This year, we don't just have the most diverse group of nominees in Grammys history, we also have for the second year in a row, the least diverse host in Grammys history."

Wins That Upset Twitter

Throughout the night, several of the winners sent Twitter into a tailspin.

First, Alessia Cara picked up the trophy for Best New Artist, despite having hit singles in 2015 and 2016. According to the Recording Academy, a "new artist" is "defined for the GRAMMY process as any performing artist or established performing group who releases, during the eligibility year, the recording that first establishes the public identity of that artist or established group as a performer. A GRAMMY nomination in a performance category in a prior year disqualifies an artist from competing in this category, unless the nomination came from a single or a guest spot on another artist's recording, and the artist hadn't yet released a full album."

In their mind, Cara's collaborations with Zedd and Logic in 2017 solidified her public identity

Another category that divided the internet was Ed Sheeran winning Best Pop Solo Performance for "Shape of You" over Kesha's anthem about overcoming sexual assault, "Praying."

P!nk Doesn't Fly for Once But Her Voice Soars

P!nk is known for her gravity-defying performances, but the only thing soaring on Sunday night were her vocals this time.

Instead of hopping into a harness to do some more wild acrobatics, the singer hit the stage looking more relaxed than ever before belting out her song "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken." It was one of the simplest, yet best vocal performances of the night.

"Finesse" Gets Everyone On Their Feet

Bruno Mars and Cardi B's performance of "Finesse" was the shot of adrenaline the show oh-so needed, with the energetic number getting the audience out of their seats.

Both singers rocked "In Living Color"-themed getups on stage, where Cardi worked the room and Mars showed off his always-impressive dance moves.

The whole thing was great, but had us wondering one question: Where was J.Lo?! How great would it have been to have the OG Fly Girl join them on stage for the tribute the '90s show.

Country Stars Mourn Shooting Victims

Maren Morris, The Brothers Osbourne and Eric Church performed Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven" to the victims of gun violence and terrorism at music events in 2017, including the Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert and the shooting at the Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

"On October 1, all of country music was reminded in the most tragic way, the connection we share with our fans, and the healing power music will always provide," Morris said before they performed.

The names of all the victims were shown behind the group as they sang.

Kesha Brings Everyone to Tears

Despite losing Best Pop Vocals for "Praying" to Ed Sheeran earlier in the night, she had the most powerful performance of the evening singing that same song.

With Andra Day, Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Bebe Rexha and Julia Michaels supporting her, the women -- all in white -- performed the anthem together, finishing in tears.

The number was introduced by Janelle Monae, who had a moving call to arms message of her own. "To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: Time's up. We say time's up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind, and the abuse of power," she said.

"We have the power to change the culture that does not serve us," she said, before adding the quote of the night: "We come in peace, but we mean business."

Camila Cabello Stands Up for DREAMers

At a time when the future for Dreamers remains uncertain, former Fifth Harmony star Camila Cabello proudly stood up for those in jeopardy.

"Tonight in this room full of music's Dreamers, we remember this country was built by Dreamers, for Dreamers, chasing the American dream. I'm here on this stage tonight, because just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope," she said. "They taught me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up. And honestly, no part of my journey is any different from theirs. I'm a proud Cuban-Mexican immigrant born in eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammy stage in New York City and all I know is just like dreams, these kids can't be forgotten and are worth fighting for."

During her speech, this also happened when cameras cut to the Carter family and it was glorious:

Trump's Biggest Critics Take Aim

[[__inactive:kaltura-video:0-8uolg3v4__]]

Corden introduced a pre-taped segment where some of the biggest names in music tried narrating Michael Wolff's explosive book about the president, "Fire & Fury."

Donald Trump critics like John Legend, Cher and Snoop Doog all tried reading some of the most salacious bits from the tell-all, before Cardi B read a passage about his alleged love of cheeseburgers. "I can't believe this. This how he lives his life?" she asked with a laugh.

But the big surprise was at the very end: Hillary Clinton, telling everyone about POTUS' supposed fear of being poisoned.

Miley and Elton John's Duet

Miley Cyrus has come a long way from twerking all over Robin Thicke.

The singer hit the stage with Sir Elton John for a memorable performance of his classic son "Tiny Dancer," looking stunning in an oxblood gown she joined him for a duet.

It was a simple, but lovely pairing.

Logic's Suicide Prevention Performance

The In Memoriam segment ended with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, who committed suicide in 2017.

The tribute was followed with a performance from Logic, who sang his single, "1-800-273-8255," which is also the number for the suicide prevention hotline.

He was joined on stage by suicide attempt and loss survivors.
