Sam Smith Dominates the Grammys

Sam Smith took Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal, and Song and Record of the Year (for “Stay With Me”) at the 57th Grammy Awards on Sunday night, while a shorts suit-wearing Pharrell Williams won Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit “Happy.” Best Rock Album and Album of the Year went to Beck, and Best R&B Performance and R&B Song went to Beyoncé for “Drunk in Love.” Pre-show winners included Weird Al Yankovic, Joan Rivers, and Kendrick Lamar. Of course, what would any music award show be without Kanye West interrupting a speech. The “Yeezus” rapper walked on stage during Beck’s acceptance for Album of the Year, but then left, leaving the audience to think he was making a joke a bout his interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 Video Music Awards. However, West clarified after the show that he certainly wasn’t. “I don’t even know what [Beck] said. I just know that, the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he said. “We aren’t going to play with them no more.”
