2017 grammys winners

‘And The Winner Is…:’ Complete 2017 Grammy Winners List

Music’s biggest night has called it a wrap!

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards — from hereon referred to as the 2017 Grammys — which were telecast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, honored the best of music excellence and featured extravagant performances from Beyonce, Adele, Katy Perry, and Bruno Mars, the latter of whom headed a star-studded tribute the late musical icon Prince. Another dearly departed musician, George Michael, was memorably memorialized by Adele, who refused to allow a faulty first cover of Michael’s “Outside” stand as the best that she could do.

As the evening progressed, the Inquisitr updated readers on the 2017 Grammy winners as they occurred. Below, you will find a majority of the hits and misses from the 2017 Grammys, as noted by USA Today, with winners’ names being displayed in bold type.
