Sam Smith Drives The 57th Grammy Awards Wild

Raised up with the incredible success of his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour', last year, Sam Smith got various nominations for six songs at Grammy Awards. The British singer also performed on his songs from the wonderfully emotive album that has made the world glimpse his honesty and true love and follow his emotions.

The ceremony took place on 8th day of February, 2015 where the 22yrs old singer drove the wonderful evening of 57th Grammy awards crazy by his superb performance.

The Grammy opened up with the supreme performance by AC/DC, classic rock band. Then Taylor Swift appeared on the stage taking the honor to present nominations for the Best New Artist Award: one of the categories where Sam won the trophy standing against some heavy hitters like Iggy Azalea, Bastille, HAIM and Brandy Clark.

The humble star addressed the crowd after receiving his award from Taylor. 'I've got to try to say something without crying. Thank you, 'Mom and dad, I won a Grammy!' Sam was controlling his emotions.

The hit maker also won the Song of the Year award for 'Stay with Me' (Darkchild Version), the Record of the Year award, and the Best Pop Vocal Album trophy. He won over the tough competition with Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, and Ed Sheeran.

Sam Smith, Beyonce Knowles and Pharrell Williams were declared the celebrities with the most Grammy nominations, honored for six awards each.

Grammy witnessed over 20 outstanding performances like Madonna who put on a wavering matador-themed show on her new song, 'Living for Love'. She recreated scenes from her music video and swept the show with her amazing dancing skills, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett who played a classic jazz duet and were apprised by the audience. The professional two of a kind won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for their song 'Cheek to Cheek'.

Some other live performances at this year's Grammy Awards include Ariana Grande, Kanye West, Rihanna, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Ed Sheeran, Mary J. Blige and other music folklore rocking the world.

The ceremony was held in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. The venue was gleaming with the shine of music and film stars. LL Cool was the host of the 57th Grammy Awards. The star has been doing the honor to host the show in his unique way for last 4 consecutive years.
