Jon Batiste, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic Take Home Top Honours, See Grammys 2022 Complete Winners’ List

Jon Batiste won album of the year honours for “We Are” at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, giving him five trophies on a night that saw the ’70s funk of Silk Sonic take record of the year and song of the year and newcomer Olivia Rodrigo take three awards.

Batiste honoured the artists he beat. “The creative arts are subjective,” he said. “Be you.”

The multi-genre performer also won for his song “Cry,” the video for “Freedom” and his work with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross on the soundtrack for “Soul.”

“I just put my head down and I work on the craft every day. I love music,” he said.
The R&B supergroup Silk Sonic took home awards in all four categories it was nominated in, including record of the year.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak were exuberant as they accepted the honour toward the end of the ceremony. The win puts Mars in historic company again: He becomes the only artist along with Paul Simon to take home the award three times.

“We are really trying our hardest to remain humble at this point,” .Paak said. “But in the industry, they call that a clean sweep!” later adding “drinks is on Silk Sonic tonight!”

The win came after the night’s festivities grew grim when Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the gathering with an update on the war and his numbers included children injured and killed.

“Our musicians wear body armour instead of tuxedos,” he said. “We are fighting Russia, which brings horrible silence with its bombs. The dead silence. Fill the silence with your music.”
