Sam Smith Is Quadruple Winner At 2015 Grammy Awards

Sam Smith Is Quadruple Winner At 2015 Grammy Awards

Sam Smith was the toast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb15), walking away with four of the six honours he was nominated for, including the coveted Record of the Year.

The British soul sensation kicked off his celebrations early after claiming the very first award of the televised show for Best New Artist.

He soon followed it up with the Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour, and was back onstage towards the end of the Los Angeles ceremony to wrap up his big night with wins for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.

Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Smith poked fun at the ex-boyfriend who inspired the album, saying, “This is the best night of my life. I wanna thank the man who this record is about… Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!”

Fellow six-time nominees Beyoncé and Pharrell Williams each went home as triple winners, while Beck landed Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase – and almost had Kanye West repeat his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift to defend his pal Beyoncé’s honour. This time, the rapper approached Beck as he collected the Album of the Year accolade and pretended to head towards the mic, before laughing and returning to his seat in the front row – much to everyone’s amusement.

The full list of winners at the 2015 Grammy Awards is:

    Happy for Sam… He deserved it. I would’ve been surprised if he didn’t win all four.

    But I’m also sad Jhenè didn’t win any from her 2 nominations.

        They didn’t fall off the earth but they haven’t really brought out new stuff either, I understand that, they aren’t anyhow artists, these are entertainers who understand their craft and aren’t just about releasing music so that their celebrity retains relevance, and so it’ll take time for them to produce something, but be sure that when they do…it’ll be worth he wait.

    I’m bummed that Hozier didn’t win for Song of the Year. The lyrics of Take Me To Church are a witty mix of brilliant innuendos and the song was written abt the Church’s stance against homosexuality. i felt Stay With Me was too literal..anywaysss

    glad paramore won for Ain’t it Fun…yaaay!!.
