While Taylor Swift may have won Grammys for Album of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989, it was Lamar who was the big winner as he swept all of the Rap categories. Swift and Lamar were heavily favored to win big.

The LA Times caught up with Swift after winning Album of the year as she expressed her thoughts about Kanye West’s outlandish comments.

“As the first woman to win album of the year twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undermine your success or who will try to take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.”

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars won Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo for Uptown Funk, while Indie/Alternative rock group Alabama Shakes won Best Alternative Rock Album, Best Rock Performance, and Best Rock Song.

Other winners included Pop star Meghan Trainor, who took home Best New Artist, and Ed Sheeran won both Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

Rapper/actor LL Cool J hosted this year’s Grammy awards from the Los Angeles Staples Center. This marks the fifth time the actor would handle Grammy hosting duties.
