Grammy Awards 2019: The winners

The winners from the 61st Grammy Awards have been announced, and it was a big night for Dua Lipa, Kacey Musgraves and Childish Gambino.

Dua Lipa, Kacey Musgraves and Childish Gambino were among the big winners at this year's Grammy Awards. 

Country-pop star Musgraves took home four prizes in total, including Album of the Year for Golden Hour. The singer-songwriter, who bagged the top prize over the likes of Cardi B, Drake and Janelle Monae, thanked her "sweet husband" during her acceptance speech, who she met and fell in love with during the recording of the collection. 

Musgraves also picked up awards for Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance for Butterflies and Best Country Song for Space Cowboy. Golden Hour is the singer's first Top 10 on the Official UK Albums Chart, debuting at Number 6 upon its released last April.  

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa won Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for her Silk City collaboration Electricity. The singer thanked her fans, "who have allowed me to be the best version of myself."

Lipa also paid tribute to the "many female artists" in the category, adding: "I guess this year we've really stepped up". The comment was a not-so-subtle dig at Grammys president Neil Portnow, who last year brushed off criticism of the lack of female winners by saying women needed to "step up" in order to be considered.

Elsewhere, Childish Gambino won Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year for This Is America, and Lady Gaga picked up prizes for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Duo Performance, the latter for Bradley Cooper duet Shallow from A Star Is Born.
