Just in case you didn’t have a chance to see the Grammys results, here’s a quick summary.
Out British singer Sam Smith made history tonight as the first openly gay winner of the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. It was one of four wins for Smith who also took home Grammys in Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.
“It was only until I started to be myself that the music started to flow and people started to listen. Just a quick one, I want to thank the man who this record is about who I fell in love with last year. Thank you so much for breaking my heart, because you got me four Grammys.”
The evening included memorable numbers from LGBT artists including Sam Smith teaming with Mary J. Blige, Brandy Clark collaborating with Dwight Yoakam, Lady Gaga with Tony Bennett, and Sia. The show also included a video message from President Obama about domestic violence and the It’s On Us campaign to stop sexual assault.

Other highlights included everyone making Tom Petty jokes when he did online, and Iggy Azalea not winning much despite all the hype, and Kanye West rushing the stage just as Beck was accepting his win for album of the year, who he happened to win over a certain Beyonce Knowles.
