"It was a ‘Lucky’ night for Daft Punk," reports CNN.
The story continues: "The robot-headed duo won record of the year for the hit ‘Get Lucky’ and album of the year for ‘Random Access Memories’ at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night."
The CNN article adds: "Daft Punk was typically silent, but singer-songwriter Paul Williams accepted the album of the year award with a generous speech. Williams, who’s written such songs as ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ and ‘Evergreen,’ had struggled to overcome substance abuse problems over the years. ‘Then I get sober and two robots asked me to make an album,’ he said."
"The Grammys also often manage to single out rising artists, and this year that meant Lorde, Kacey Musgraves and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis," says the CNN story, adding "Lorde earned the third of the big three awards, song of the year, for ‘Royals.’ The honor is a songwriters’ award."
CNN also noted: "Musgraves won for best country album. Macklemore & Lewis, who were nominated for seven awards, won four. … The pair also took home rap album (‘The Heist’), rap performance and rap song (both for ‘Thrift Shop’). Macklemore & Lewis beat out some tough competition in the rap categories. Their album was up against offerings from Drake and Kendrick Lamar, and ‘Thrift Shop’ defeated songs by Jay Z and Kanye West."
