The Grammys are over. Sam Smith has truly arrived on the international stage thanks to his four awards.
Beck was a surprise but well-deserved winner, while Pharrell and Beyonce continue to dominate the world of pop.
Performance highlights included Sia (even though she was facing a wall) and Pharrell (can the next album be full of pseudo European film soundtracks please?) Madonna returned, but needs to find a new way to shock.
There was also a serious undertone, with sections highlighting domestic abuse and civil rights.
