THE LIST: Who were the big winners at the 2015 Grammy awards?

by

57th GRAMMY Awards - Press Room

Well another year of Grammys has wrapped up and unless you’ve been living under a rock you’d have heard all about Kanye West almost pulling another “imma let you finish” on Beck, Madonna still not realizing she’s older than your grandmother and Rhianna wearing what looked to everyone else to be a giant birthday cake as a dress. But despite all the attention grabbing distractions, the Grammys has always first and foremost been about the music – and boy were there some big winners.

 

Sam Smith cleaned up at this Grammy awards ceremony snagging three of the four most coveted awards including Best Song and Record of the Year for his song “Stay With Me” whilst Beck took long overdue honours for Album of the year (whilst sending twitter into a meltdown over who he actually IS).

 

They were far from the only winner on the night though. From Aphex Twin receiving mainstream critical acclaim for his first album in 10 years in Syro to Pharrell taking home the award for best pop solo performance for a live version of “Happy,” that was released in 2013 to Beyoncé taking home three awards including Best Surround Sound Album to become the #2 on the list of all-time female winners at the Grammys, there was no shortage of surprises.
