It was the Grammy Awards in LA last night. Am I going to just focus on the UK artists who won awards like some kind of UKIP-voting Brexiteer shouting in everyone’s face that “British is best”, “we invented everything”, “fuck the foreigners” and “God save the king!” Maybe. We’ll see.

I mean Harry Styles did walk away with the prestigious Album Of The Year gong for ‘Harry’s House’, as well as the Best Pop Vocal Album prize for the same record. Because, you know, British is best.

And Wet Leg got two awards as well. Best Alternative Music Album for their eponymous debut long player and Best Alternative Music Performance for ‘Chaise Longue’. Because, I mean, we invented everything.

Sam Smith got the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Award for Kim Petras collaboration ‘Unholy’. Adele won Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Easy On Me’. And Ozzy Osbourne got Best Metal Performance for ‘Degradation Rules’. Because, and let’s be clear about this, fuck the foreigners.

And that was pretty much it really. Yeah, Bonnie Raitt was the surprise winner of Song Of The Year with ‘Just Like That’. Lizzo got the Record Of The Year award for ‘About Damn Time’. And Beyonce won in four categories, meaning she has now won a record breaking 32 Grammys across her career. But I mean, who’s counting?

For the full lists of nominees and winners in all 4917 categories at the Grammys, check this page on the award bash’s own website.

Will a UK artist also win the prestigious Album Of The Year prize at this weekend’s BRIT Awards. I’d predict so. And only partly because we don’t let any foreigners into that category. God Save The King!
