Last night at the delayed ceremony, which marked the 64th GRAMMY Awards, 86 different categories were awarded across a huge range of musical artists and songwriters. 

Global megastars like Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic (a project between Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak), and jazz musicians Jon Batiste shared the top honours at a ceremony which also saw a tribute to Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and a video message from Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky.

While a host of PRS members were nominated across the night, four winners emerged. Songwriter Steve McEwan won in the Best American Roots Song category for the song Cry, performed by (and also written with) Jon Batiste. McEwan was also a contributor to Batiste’s Album of the Year award for We Are.

South African DJ Black Coffee picked up the prestigious Best Dance / Electronic Album award for Subconsciously - while Stewart Copeland won Best New Age album for Divine Tides
