    Grammy Awards 2022: See the full list of winners

    The 2022 Grammy Awards winners were announced Sunday, April 3, at a live ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada. Early winners included Jon Batiste, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Foo Fighters, St. Vincent, H.E.R. and comedian Louis C.K.; Central New York native Joe Bonamassa, on the other hand, lost in the Best Contemporary Blues Album category.

    Highlights at the beginning of the broadcast included performances by Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson. Paak), Rodrigo (”Driver’s License”), J Balvin, and K-pop sensation BTS. The night also featured a career-spanning medley by rap legend Nas, a tribute to Tony Bennett performed by Lady Gaga, an address by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, a moving in memoriam segment bookended by late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Broadway great Stephen Sondheim, and performances by Billie Eilish, Brandi Carlile, Lil Nas X, H.E.R., Travis Barker and Lenny Kravitz.

    Silk Sonic, a superduo composed of Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak, were the first performers to take to the stage and also to pick up a major award, winning the Grammy for Song of the Year with Leave the Door Open. The track came out highly decorated, also snagging Record of the Year, Best R&B Song, and tied with Jazmine Sullivan for Best R&B Performance.

    Silk Sonic won all the categories it was nominated for, with Paak calling the night “a clean sweep.”

    Jon Batiste, a multi-genre artist who garnered the most Grammy nominations this year, being acknowledged in 11 categories, took home Album of the Year for his LP We Are. He earned another four Grammys at the Premiere Ceremony for a total of five wins.
