Childish Gambino Made History At The 61st Grammys, And Didn't Show Up

Young Thug wins first-ever Grammy for work on Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”

NAN reports that Childish Gambino's "This is America" won a total of four Grammy awards on Sunday night. According to the organizers of the ceremony, the performer declined all invitations to perform at the event. His chart-conquering 2018 single "This Is America" managed to take home both Song of the Year and Record of the Year, and all of this after turning down the offer to perform and not even attending the telecast.

The 35-year-old artist's Grammy win is his second overall, after his hit "Redbone" won the prize for Best Traditional R&B Performance last year. But presenters John Mayer and Alicia Keys had to accept for the absent rapper.

That wintry mix will form in large part due to temperatures that forecasters expect to slowly climb while precipitation falls. A special weather statement has been issued for Waterloo Region, Wellington County and much of Southern Ontario.

The Recording Academy has made an effort to diversify its membership amid complaints the Grammys have frequently failed to recognize rap and hip-hop artists in the major categories. "When you go to vote on a piece of music - at least the way that I approach it - is you nearly put a blindfold on and you listen". Keys explained that after his win, Mayer broke his GRAMMY in half and wrote "If I Ain't Got You" on the trophy and gave it to her.
