Taylor Swift, who won the night's top prize, beating out Kendrick Lamar, Chris Stapleton, Alabama Shakes and the Weeknd said: "There will be people along the way that will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. You just focus on the work and don't let those people sidetrack you"
Country singer Taylor Swift scooped up Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for her record-breaking pop collection 1989. But the night's big winner was rapper Kendrick Lamar, the voice of the Black Lives Matter movement, who won five awards including Best Rap Album for To Pimp a Butterfly, Rap Performance, Rap Song, Rap/Sung performance and Music Video
