Last night's Grammy Awards were dominated by Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar, who picked up three and five awards respectively, including a joint win for their collaboration on Bad Blood.

Swift scooped the fattest prize, with 1989 crowned Album Of The Year, seeing off Lamar and The Weeknd, and also came up with some choice words for (presumably) Kanye West. Her acceptance speech saw her pronouncing, "I want to say to all the young women out there – there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," widely taken as a riposte to West's claims in new track Famous.

Also on the night, there was a brace of wins for our own Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud and a Best Rock Album gong for Muse's Drones, while Best Music Film went to Amy, the documentary of the life of Amy Winehouse.

Scattered among the awards, there were performances too from Swift, Adele and Lady Gaga, who delivered a David Bowie tribute medley with the Aladdin Sane make-up projected on her face.
