It was Sam Smith’s night as he took home 4 Grammys during the 2015 57th Annual Grammy Awards. The show boasted of great performances including Common and John Legend performing nominated song “Glory” and Smith and Mary J. Blige’s version of the mega hit “Stay with Me” was one of the main reasons to watch the show.

Once again the main awards that I wanted to see where not televised but congrats to Erica Cambell who won for “Best Gospel Album” for “Help” while the “Best Gospel Performance/Song," was "No Greater Love" by Smokie Norful; "Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song" winner was "Messengers" by Lecrae featuring For Kings & Country; “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album" winner was "Run Wild.
