Beck and Sam Smith dominated the 57th Annual Grammy Awards held Sunday in Los Angeles, winning the biggest categories on the world's most celebrated night of music. Sam Smith won four of his six nominations, whereas Beck's Sea Change quasi-sequel "Morning Phase" surprised many when it won the prestigious Album of the Year award.

Sam Smith bagged the first award of the evening, becoming the first British act to win the Best New Artist honor since Adele back in 2009. The Rolling Stone cover sensation's "In the Lonely Hour" then won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. Smith also performed his breakthrough single "Stay with Me" on the Staples Center stage alongside with Mary J. Blige.

"This is the best night of my life," said a jubilant Smith after accepting the prestigious Record of the Year award. He went on to thank the man who Smith said the record was about, referring to a man he fell in love within the previous year. He said if this mystery man had not broken his heart, he would not have won four Grammys.

Beck surprised many when he won one of the most desired awards of the night, the Album of the Year, after he missed out on the Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song categories. His "Morning Phase" beat out Beyoncé's "Beyoncé" and Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour".

Kanye West was so surprised that Beyoncé lost out to Beck that he jokingly crashed the stage, much like in 2009 when he interrupted Taylor Swift's speech at the VMA when she won against Beyoncé's hit "Single Ladies".

Beyoncé may not have won Album of the Year, but she won two Grammys before the evening even began. Her "Drunk in Love" bagged the Best R&B song and her album "Beyoncé" locked Best Surround Sound Album at the pre-ceremony festivities.

Rosanne Cash won three Grammys in what turned out to be a whitewash of the Americana category. Her album "The River & The Thread" won Best American Album while her song "A Feather's Not a Bird" won Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance. Pharrell Williams' incredibly successful single "Happy" won Best Pop Solo Performance.
