New Zealand’s singing Diva, Lorde and French DJs Daft Punk were honoured with the top awards at this year’s Grammys at the Staples centre, Los Angeles.
“Thank you to everyone who has let this song explode, because it has been mental,” Lorde said when accepting her award with writing and singing partner, Joel Little.
Lorde and Joel won Song of the year for their hit single, ‘Royals’ which stormed the international charts last year earning Lorde, the first act from New Zealand to top the US Billboard chart.
Daft Punk scored the Album of the Year award for Random Access Memories and Record of the Year award for the hit single, Get Lucky featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.
Topping all performances, the ‘Drunk in Love’ duo Jay Z and Queen B wife, Beyonce in her first appearance since the release of the self-titled album in December, stunned the crowd with their outstanding performance after several speculations about the couple performing on stage together.
