Daft Punk, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won big at the Grammy Awards. Continuing their incredible year, the electronic duo won five Grammys including “Album of the Year” for their Random Access Memories LP and “Song of the Year” for their hit-single “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell and Nile Rodgers.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis fueled more debates in social media when they swept all three rap awards (“Best Rap Album,” “Best Rap Performance,” “Best Rap Song) during the pre-show telecast. The Seattle rap duo would go on to win “Best New Artist” during the main show, bringing their victory count to four.
Justin Timberlake won three awards including “Best Music Video” for “Suit & Tie” with Jay Z, while teen sensation Lorde received two awards for “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.” Other winners included Rihanna (“Best Urban Contemporary Album”), and Alicia Keys (“Best R&B Album”). Sadly for Kendrick Lamar, he was shut out after receiving seven nominations.
