Updated | English singer Sam Smith and indie chameleon Beck proved to be the major winners at the 57th Grammy Awards Sunday night.

Smith snagged four awards total, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year (both for "Stay With Me"), while Beck took home both Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for 2014's Morning Phase. (Beck beat out U2's controversial iPhone giveaway album Songs of Innocence in this category.) The Album of the Year win was partly interrupted by Kanye West approaching the stage in support of Beyoncé.

Smith's lucky night began early: Within an hour of the ceremony's start, the English star was awarded two Grammys for Best Pop Vocal Album (for 2014's In The Lonely Hour) and Best New Artist. Taylor Swift presented the latter award, cheekily reminding the audience that she lost that award in 2008. (Read about why some artists might not want to be the recipient in the Best New Artist category.)

Other big winners include Beyoncé, who thanked her "bey-hive" fanbase after taking home the Best R&B Performance Grammy for "Drunk in Love," and virtuoso Kendrick Lamar, who snagged Best Rap Performance for "I."

Meanwhile, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for Cheek to Cheek; Miranda Lambert was awarded Best Country Album for Platinum; and Pharrell Williams snagged both Best Music Video and Best Pop Solo Performance for 2013 mega-hit "Happy," which the artist performed in a choir arrangement, as well as Best Urban Contemporary Album for G I R L.

Memorable performances of the evening included Madonna's bizzare matador-themed "Living for Love", Kanye West's intimate rendering of "Only One," and a performance of Selma anthem "Glory" featuring John Legend, Common and Beyoncé. Sia sang her hit "Chandelier" with her back to the audience, while actress Kristen Wiig showed off her dancing abilities when she joined Maddie Ziegler onstage for the song.
