2017 Grammy Award winners

The 2017 Grammy Awards handed out 84 awards to the music industry’s best and brightest on Sunday. The major awards were handed out during the televised broadcast, but many were handed out before the big show began.

The big winner of the night was Adele, who took home five Grammys, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Hello,” and, in a major upset, beat out Beyoncé for Album of the Year (25).
Chance the Rapper took home three trophies, including Best New Artist. And David Bowie’s Blackstar — released just two days before the singer passed away on January 10, 2016 — earned five.
Here’s the full list of winners.
