The results are in.

Cardi B, Childish Gambino and Ariana Grande are among the artists who have received awards at the 61st Grammy Awards.

Childish Gambino, AKA Donald Glover, won Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Music Video for ‘This Is America’, making it the first hip-hop Song of the Year Grammy winner in history.

Donald Glover was not present at the awards ceremony, with composer Ludwig Göransson accepting the prize for Record of the Year on his behalf. During his acceptance speech, Göransson shouted out 21 Savage, who features as one of the many backing vocalists on the track and was recently arrested by ICE. Glover’s absence at the ceremony follows Grammy show producer Ken Ehrlich telling The New York Times that Childish Gambino, Drake and Kendrick Lamar all turned down opportunities to perform at this year’s awards.

Ariana Grande received her first Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album, but was also not present to receive the award after she claimed that her “creativity & self expression was stifled” by Ehrlich. Her comments were in response to Ehrlich claiming that Grande was not performing at the Grammys as she “felt it was too late for her to pull something together”.

The other big awards went to Kacey Musgraves, who won Album of the Year for Golden Hour, Dua Lipa, who won Best New Artist and Cardi B, who won Best Rap Album. Best Dance/Electronic Album went to Justice for their live album Woman Worldwide, beating albums by Jon Hopkins, TOKiMONSTA and, most disappointingly, SOPHIE’S Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides.
