Grammy Awards 2013

The 55th Grammy Awards took place last night, (this morning our time) to honour the biggest musical achievements from the past twelve months. The biggest night in music featured performances from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, Miguel and Bruno Mars – just to name a few.

For the Rap & R&B categories the biggest winners on the night were Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne collaboration, scooping up three awards; Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for ‘N****s In Paris’. They also won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, with Kanye in Brazil the award was accepted by Jay-Z alongside Frank Ocean and The-Dream.

The Best Rap Album was swept up by a very happy Drake for Take Care, so happy that he released the video for ‘Started From The Bottom’ straight afterwards.

Early wins saw and Usher’s ‘Climax’ scoop up Best R&B Performance and Miguel’s ‘Adorn’ take Best R&B Song- which he them performed with Wiz Khalifa.

Rihanna scooped up one award out of the three categories she was in for, the short form music video category, beating Jay-Z and Kanye’s ‘No Church In The Wild’ and M.I.A.’s ‘Bad Girls’.

The night saw disappointment for Frank Ocean and his fans, as the singer-songwriter only scooped up one out of the four awards he was nominated for (collaboration doesn’t really count); taking home the Best Urban Contemporary Album for album channel ORANGE. Despite his losses Frank performed ‘Forrest Gump’.

Alternative rock Gotye swept up three major awards including; Best Alternative Album with Making Mirrors, Record of the Year and Best Due/Group Performance for ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ featuring Kimbra.

In the Rock category, The Black Keys were the biggest winners. While Skrillex swept the Dance/Electronica category.

The night was a big one for the Brits; Adele scooped up Best Solo Pop Performance for her live rendition of ‘Set Fire to the Rain’, Mumford & Sons won Album Of The Year and Ed Sheeran performed ‘A Team’ with Elton John.

Overall, Jay-Z & Kanye, The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Gotye, and Skrillex were the big winners at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
