The 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards took place last night.

Kendrick Lamar walked away with the most awards - five, including best rap album for 'To Pimp a Butterfly'. He received 11 nominations, coming second only to Michael Jackson who once received 12 nominations. Ed Sheeran also won his first Grammy (Song of the Year), and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars won Record of the Year with Uptown Funk. Justin Bieber's musical comeback was recognised with his Where Are U Now collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo winning Best Dance Recording.

Taylor Swift responded to *those* Kanye tweets.

Kanye is no stranger to controversy, and was in the spotlight earlier this week for his very weird tweets. He claimed he "made that b**** famous" (flashback to that "Imma let you finish" moment) - conveniently around the same time he released his own album. Taylor hit back with her acceptance speech for Album of the Year. It's directed at all the young women out there, but we all know there's a Kanye dig all over it.

“I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment."

To make it even more triumphant, Taylor walked away with 3 Grammys - and pointed out she was the first woman to win Album of the Year twice - having previously won with Fearless.

It all got a bit emotional for Selena Gomez

Adele's Grammy comeback was marred with sound troubles.

A microphone fell onto the strings of the piano - so the live performance of All I Ask was ruined. At least things got better for Adele. (But the rest of us are still utterly heartbroken.)

And Lady Gaga went Gaga for Bowie

In a tribute to the late great David Bowie, she sung a medley of some of his greatest hits. There were MANY outfit changes.
