Yes. Technical (engineering)'-- a category likely not awarded on TV.

I figured the same but it's still an award for him nonetheless.

Grammys can't handle HnR Ph.2... it's exclusive - for committed fans.

Dear Bruno Mars,
Eye am a fan of yours. Eye have tickets to see U in October when U come 2 Philadelphia. Eye am looking forward to your Prince tribute 2night. Eye would like 2 make 1 request: Please don't sing Purple Rain. Don't get me wrong, Eye love Purple Rain. It's a great song. But it's been PLAYED OUT! Prince has close to 1000 songs in his catalogue, including dozens of hits, but pretty much every tribute 2 Prince has included Purple Rain. So, 2night, maybe U could sing Little Red Corvette or When Doves Cry or, 1 of my favorites, Diamonds and Pearls. I look 4ward to your performance! RIP Prince. ~ Michelle #Prince #Grammys

David Bowie is winning pretty much every award he was nominated for. Clearly the powers that be decided they didn't honor him enough when he was alive so they're doing it posthumously.

I dont know why I cant bring myself to watch Prince tributes. sad
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

OMG BRUNO JUST SHUT IT DOWN!!! THAT TRIBUTE WAS F**KING INCREDIBLE!!! I was dancing almost the entire whole time. --- And then the ad that comes on after the performance has people singing Nothing Compares 2 U. -- Seriously, BRUNO WAS AMAZING!!! The outfit, the steps from the movie, the guitar solo, it was INCREDIBLE!!! I'm LOST FOR WORDS!!! -- LONG LIVE PRINCE!!!

Me neither. Another reason to really like Bruno. He & the band did a great job, as did the TIME!

Bruno was perfect, & did it right. That's not a statement on any other tributes in the past.

The guitar, the purple, the lace, everything. Just fantastic.

As a George Michael fan, I don't know who to blame for that ridiculous version of "Fastlove". I don't blame Adele, because she's an immense talent. The song was inappropriate. She should have done "A Different Corner", DNCE do "I Want Your Sex", then Adam Lambert doing "Freedom '90" with a choir. So much better choices than "Fastlove".

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I had so many mixed emotions watching Bruno's performance; cried the entire time; half being pisssed that someone else besides the MAN himself playing his song; the other half, happy to hear Bruno doing a good job and not ruining the song/tribute.

Thank you, Bruno! I still miss the one and only though.

Kudos to Bruno for doing a pretty good job tonight. At some points, it seemed like a Vegas tribute show, but Bruno was not bad. I'm glad there was no Purple Rain or Nothing Compares to You performance.The Time were ok, but something was missing.

These tributes really drive home the point that Prince made ALL of these songs/performances look so effortless. I miss the faces, the moves, the aura he just oozed. Sometimes knowing he is not there is still very hard to fathom, but his legacy will endure.

On a final note, the Google tribute (Nothing Compares to You) gave me goosebumps. Very nice job by Google.
