Lizzo was the first winner announced at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The 31-year-old singer was shocked as she earned the Best Pop Solo Performance Win for Truth Hurts in front of the star-studded audience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Crowd - Message - Positivity - 'Let - Continue

She uplifted the crowd with a message of positivity as she said: 'Let’s continue to reach out, hold each other down and lift each other up.'

She faced stiff-competition including: Beyonce (Spirit), Billie Eilish (Bad Guy), Ariana Grande (7 Rings), and Taylor Swift (You Need To Calm Down).

Gong - 'This - Week - Problems - Priorities

While accepting the gong she said: 'This whole week I've been lost in my problems, stressed out, and that can go away and priorities really shift.'

The second award of the night was given to Dan & Shay in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for Speechless.

Night - Alicia - Keys - Boyz - II

Earlier in the night Alicia Keys was joined by Boyz II Men as they paid an emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna while kicking off The Grammys.

The 39-year-old singer gave an emotional monologue before the performance in front of the star-studded crowd at the Staples Center where Bryant had played most of his NBA career.

'We - House - Kobe - Bryant - Built

She said: 'We're standing here, heartbroken, in the house that Kobe Bryant built.'

There was also a spotlight on the LA Lakers star's No. 8 and 24 jerseys in the rafters of the arena the entire night.

Accompaniment - Alicia - Boyz - II - Men

With no musical accompaniment, Alicia began singing Boyz II Men's 1991 hit It's So Hard to Say Goodbye To Yesterday.

She was then joined by the R&B group who happens to be from the same hometown of Philadelphia as the recently-departed 41-year-old NBA superstar for the a capella performance.
