The 58th Annual Grammy Awards were held just a couple of hours ago at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. To nobody’s surprise, Tay Tay took home her second best album honour with her bestie Ed Sheeran bagging awards for “Song of the year” as well as “Best pop solo performance”.

Meghan Trainor took home “Best new artiste” and hit us right in the feels with her emotional acceptance speech and, also, Lady Gaga knocked the socks off out feet with a fascinating tribute to her idol, the late British rock visionary David Bowie.

Show-stealers and red carpet arrivals aside, here are the winners of the awards:
