POLL: Houston Symphony Wins at The Grammy's


They didn't all get to walk the red carpet... but the Houston Symphony won its first-ever Grammy Award Sunday night. They took home the "Best Opera Recording" for their live two-disk set of Alban Berg's "Wozzeck". It was also their first-ever nomination.

One comedy bit in the show - broadcast on CBS and the Recording Academy - had various celebrities "auditioning" to read the audiobook version of Michael Wolff's scandalous book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." Among the celebrities: John Legend, Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and, finally, Hillary Clinton...

Chart-topping pop star Camila Cabello, a Cuban-Mexican immigrant, made a speech in support of DACA while introducing a live performance by U2...

"All I know is, just like dreams, these kids can't be forgotten and are worth fighting for."

Bruno Mars was the big winner on the night, taking home nine Grammys.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will also feature two other Grammy winners. "Best New Artist" Alessia Cara will perform on March 4th. Chris Stapleton - who won "Best Country Album" - will be on the new stage March 16th.
