GRAMMYS 2013: And The Winners Are…. (Full List)


Rihanna-Chris-Brown-Grammys-2013
Another year of music's biggest and best has come and gone.
This year's Grammy awards, hosted by the always fantastic LL Cool J saw a raft of awards handed out to some of 2012's most vibrant artists!
It was expected that one of the year's most talked about talents Frank Ocean would go home with a few nods, and that he did! A few days after his feud with Chris Brown came out, Ocean picked up the gong for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Channel orange, and Best Rap/Sung Collabo for No Church in the Wild – one of his two featured performances on Jaz and Kanye's 'Watch the Throne album.
The cameras panned to Chris Brown as Ocean went to receive his award... and let's just say he wasn't exactly jumping for joy over his nemesis's win!
Some of the other 'urban' winners included Usher for his monster hit 'Climax' – he took best RnB performance; best RnB song went to Miguel for Adorn, while the Queen B took the award for best traditional RnB song for 'Love on Top'. She looked stunning on the red carpet in pants.
Drake silenced the opposition with his win for the album 'Take Care' while Jay Z and Kanye took the Best rap song/ performance awards for 'Paris'.
Fallen greats were honoured during the live telecast, including Hip Hop mogul and co-founder of Violator records Chris Lighty who was found dead last August, while the legend that is Bob Marley was celebrated with a performance that included Rihanna and Sting and Bruno Mars.
