Staff WriterA star-studded guest-list gathered together for the 56th Grammy Awards in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California last night to celebrate another year in music! Before the ceremony began, there was a Pre-Telecast (hosted by the wonderful Cyndi Lauper) where the more specific awards were given out. Some of the awards and winners were the sensational Michael Bublé for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, Ziggy Marley for Best Raggae Album and Cedric Gervais’ remix of Lana Del Rey’s hit “Summertime Sadness” for Best Remixed Recording. Other big-name wins from the pre-show were French-duo Daft Punk for Best Engineered Album with their hugely successful album Random Access Memories. Moving on to the main ceremony, Daft Punk managed to bring their total awards up to a whopping five Grammys! Macklemore and Ryan Lewis also won big; bagging four awards. The 56th Annual Grammys were not only a night of celebration in music, but a celebration of love! Live on stage, Madonna, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert performed as 33 couples got married! Couples of all ages and genders tied the knot in the most unique and powerful statement on equality. Other big names pulling off some impressive performances on the night were Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Lorde, Paul McCartney with Ringo Starr (who also received the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award for The Beatles), P!nk with Nate Ruess and Sara Bareilles with 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year Carole King. You can check out some of the big winners below! For a complete list, visit The Grammy's website.
