On February 12, The 59th annual Grammy awards were held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. James Corden, most known for his Carpool Karaoke segments on his show “Late Late Show” shined as the host of this year’s ceremony. Adele, Chance the Rapper, Drake, Beyoncé, and even the deceased David Bowie each won awards.

Adele was the most prominent artist this year; as she won all five categories she was nominated for including: song of the year, record of the year (both for her hit song “Hello”), and album of the year (for her album “25”).

Chance the Rapper won artist of the year, and made history when he won the first award given for most music streams.

Beyoncé, nominated for nine categories, took home two Grammys for her album “Lemonade.”

David Bowie, who died after a battle with cancer in early 2016, won two Grammys for his acclaimed album “Blackstar.”

Drake also took home two awards for his summer hit “Hotline Bling.”

Notable performances include The Weeknd and Daft Punk, Adele’s George Michael tribute, Metallica and Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Skip Marley (Bob Marley’s grandson), Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars.

There were a few mishaps this year, from Metallica’s microphones not turned on, to Adele’s restart on her George Michael tribute (unsatisfied with how she began), stating that Michael was too important to her for her to not get it right.

Overall, the 59th Grammy’s held high ratings and contained minimal conflicts, making it a success.
