Kendrick Lamar Does INSANE Performance of 'The Blacker the Berry' & 'Alrigh

Kendrick Lamar stole the show at the 2016 Grammy Awards on Monday night (Feb. 15). With politically charged renditions of "The Blacker The Berry" and "Alright," the Compton rapper -- who took home five trophies including best rap album for his sophomore studio album To Pimp A Butterfly -- wore chains alongside dancers before hosting an on-stage bonfire at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Even Adele had to give Lamar a shout out following her own Grammy performance. "Love you Kendrick, you're amazing," she said.

Timelines followed Adele's lead as celebrities gave K. Dot glowing co-signs after his powerful set. See how blue checks reacted to his performance on Twitter below.
