Taylor Swift lands Album of the Year.
The music event of the year took place last night (February 15th 2016) with Taylor Swift and Mark Ronson scooping the top prizes but Kendrick Lamar taking home the most awards altogether at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. Here's a rundown of the ceremony in brief.
Mark Ronson wins Record of the Year for 'Uptown Funk'
Record of the Year, of course, went to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars for 'Uptown Funk' which also earned Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and the Dave Audé Remix won Best Remixed Recording for a Non-Classical song. It was Taylor Swift who landed the coveted Album Of The Year, however, with '1989' also becoming Best Pop Vocal Album. Swift also won an award alongside Kendrick Lamar for Best Music Video with 'Bad Blood', marking the rapper's fifth accolade of the evening.

While 'To Pimp A Butterfly' was beaten to Best Album, it did still come out on top as Best Rap Album while single 'Alright' landed Lamar Best Rap Performance and Rap Song. He also won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for his joint venture 'These Walls' featuring Bilal, Anna Wise and Thundercat.
Kendrick Lamar takes home the most awards
Alabama Shakes were another big winner at the show, their song 'Don't Wanna Fight' named Best Rock Performance and Rock Song, and their album 'Sound & Color' named both Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album in the Non-Classical category. They weren't nominated for Best Rock Album this year though, and that prize was taken home by Muse for 'Drones'.
It's been another successful year for Ed Sheeran
It was Ed Sheeran's hit 'Thinking Out Loud' that was branded Song Of The Year, also landing him Best Pop Solo Performance. Meanwhile, fellow pop singer Meghan Trainor became Best New Artist.

It was common knowledge that Lady Gaga would be paying tribute to the late David Bowie at this year's Grammy awards, but the night also gave a nod to another musical legend taken from us too soon as it was the touching Amy Winehouse documentary entitled 'Amy' that was named Best Music Film.
