Silk Sonic, Olivia Rodrigo & Foo Fighters win big at Grammy Awards

The 64th Annual Grammy Awards took place in Las Vegas last night, despite a two-month delay.

Organisers decided to push it back from the end of January because of Covid-19.

At the start, host Trevor Noah referenced Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars - saying they'll be "keeping people's names out of our mouths".

However, Bruno Mars, the late Taylor Hawkins and Ukraine's President were the major talking points this morning following the ceremony in the Entertainment Capital of the World.


American rock band Foo Fighters picked up three awards in the rock categories at the Grammys - a few days after the death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins.


The group won Best Rock Performance (Making A Fire), Best Rock Song (Waiting On A War), and Best Rock Album (‌Medicine At Midnight).

The ceremony in Las Vegas also featured a poignant tribute to the late drummer, with a video montage to their song "My Hero", showcased during the slot the band were supposed to perform before they pulled out following the death of their friend.


Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo also won three trophies - including best new artist - while supergroup Silk Sonic claimed record AND song of the year for “Leave the Door Open”.


Bruno Mars appeared in the headlines this morning after lighting a cigarette after he won an award.

Jon Batiste won what's considered the night's biggest prize - album of the year for 'We Are'.


The evening also featured a chilling message from Ukraine's President - saying his country's musicians were wearing body armour instead of tuxedos.

A bunch of artists also performed at the ceremony, including Billie, Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
