It’s not a surprise that Adele picked up more hardware. She is, after all, one of just a few artists basically propping up the industry’s sales numbers, and NARAS voters know it. However, it was a surprise that she edged out Beyonce, in the Album category.

When all was said and done, it was a bigger year for pop and rap than it was for rock and alternative. There were some well-deserved wins as David Bowie received 5 posthumous nods, Sarah Jarosz took home two, Sturgill Simpson had a bit of a surprise win, and Fantastic Negrito went from a Tiny Desk Contest winner to Grammy winner.

Notable Wins:

Adele: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album

David Bowie: Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Alternative Album, Best Engineered Album – Non-Classical, Best Recording Package
