Grammy Awards 2017: The Complete List of Winners

This year’s Grammy Awards were probably not a surprise for most. UK pop singer Adele has pocketed quite a few of them: the one for the Album of the Year, the Song of the Year, the Best Pop Vocal Album, and the one for the Best Pop Solo Performance. This is a record performance, by the way – Adele is the first artist to win album, record, and song of the year twice.

Another big winner of this year’s Grammys was Chance the Rapper, snagging the awards for the Best Rap Album (Coloring Book), the Best Rap Performance (“No Problem” [featuring Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz]) and the Best New Artist, a distinction awarded to a black hip-hop artist for the first time since Lauryn Hill (1999).

This year’s Grammys honored the legends of music, too. The late David Bowie won his first Grammy awards since 1985, when he snagged “Best Video, Short Form”. This year, the memory of the artist was honored with four awards, including the one for the Best Rock Song (Blackstar), the Best Rock Performance, the Best Alternative Music Album and the Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical awards.

Other notable wins include The Chainsmokers winning the Best Dance Recording award for their “Don’t Let Me Down” [ft. Daya], and Flume winning the Best Dance/Electronic Album award for “Skin”.
