February 8 2015, 8:20 pm

There’s good news and bad news. Want the good news first? Meghan Trainor, Iggy Azalea and “Shake It Off” received no awards. Praise Godney! Now for the bad news…

ALBUM OF THE YEAR: “Morning Phase” – Beck

Twitter lost its mind when Prince didn’t say Beyoncé (blame “Superpower”) and nobody could believe it. Prince couldn’t believe it, you couldn’t believe it and neither could I. Luckily, Kanye West was on hand to intervene and he singlehandedly delivered the best moment of the night.

Iconic. Now for Sam Smith the rest…

Now, I thought about including the country awards but after the painfully boring performances I had to sit through for that genre – no.

Anyway, the real winner of the night was Madonna. If you missed the live debut of “Living For Love” (or just want to watch it over and over again like me) then you can check out all of the night’s performances here.
