It was most certainly Bruno Mars' night, with Kendrick Lamar a close runner up

Retro R&B star Bruno Mars was the surprise big winner Sunday at the Grammy Awards, with a clean sweep of the top awards including Album, Record and Song of the Year, and six overall.

Mars won all of the awards for which he was nominated.
