Last night at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, America, the 58th Grammy Awards took place, with artists such as Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and the Weeknd all winning awards.
The night was a chance to look back at the musical talent seen this past year, awarding and acknowledging a great selection of new and current artists. However, the night also played host to some unfortunate performances; with technical difficulties for Adele and a very busy and manic Bowie tribute performance by Lady Gaga. In addition, the audience also witnessed some on stage guest surprises, such as Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper performing with the Hollywood Vampires and Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, dressed as a taxi, appearing on stage during Pitbull's closing performance.
The star of the show was Taylor Swift, winning the album of the year award, becoming the first woman to win the award twice. She opened the show with a version of her hit Out of the Woods which proved to be a showstopping performance. She later made a defiant acceptance speech, alluding her argument with Kanye West, which occurred earlier in the week.
Kendrick Lamar took home the most awards from the night, winning five in total; best rap song, best rap performance, best rap/song collaboration, best music video and best rap album. The rapper had received 11 nominations over all, beating Eminem's record for most nominations in a single night, and coming second to Michael Jackson for the most nominations ever. Later in the show he too took to the stage for a politically charged performance of The Blacker the Berry and Alright.
Taylor Swift and the Weeknd received seven nominations each, with other artists such as Meghan Trainer winning best new artist, Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk winning record of the year and best pop duo/group performance. Best dance recording was won by Skirllex and Diplo with Justin Bieber for their Where Are Ü Now.
However, a set by Rihanna, which was promised to be the night's most high octane performance was cancelled last minute.
