55th Annual Grammy Awards: Sons, Fun., Gotye Win Big In One Of The Best Grammy Nights! [Winners List]

It’s the music industry’s biggest night as the world’s greatest artists gather together to celebrate the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.  Multiple winners tonight are The Black Keys, winning 3 Grammys plus an award for member Dan Auerbach, Gotye with a total of 3 Grammys, and Mumford And Sons, also with 3.  Frank Ocean who received the most nominations (6), goes home with two.  Pop-rock band Fun. wins Song Of The Year for their smash “We Are Young,” and one of the most coveted categories of the night — Best New Artist.  It’s also a night of the American Idols as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood win Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Country Solo and Country Song, respectively.

The night is filled with incredible performances by Fun.Frank Ocean, Mumford And SonsKelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jack White, and Ed Sheeran with Elton John, Rihanna, and more, but my favorite performance of the night goes to the Bob Marley Tribute featuring Bruno Mars, Sting, Rihanna, Ziggy and Damien Marley.  I also love the performance of Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys where they mashed their songs Daylight and Girl On Fire together.  One of the major highlights of the night is the return of Justin Timberlake to the stage.  I must say, this year’s Grammy Awards is one of the best.
