The 57th Annual Grammy Awards belonged to Sam Smith, as the British singer won four of the biggest awards to complete an incredible rise to stardom over the past few years. “Stay With Me” won both the Record of the Year and Song of the Year awards. Smith won the Best New Artist award, and his album In The Lonely Night won Best Pop Vocal Album.
One of the more surprising results was Beck winning Album of the Year for Morning Phase, beating Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and Beyonce. Lady Gaga won her 6th Grammy for her collaboration album with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek, which won the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album award.
