The Grammys also marked first-time wins for Alabama Shakes, the Weeknd, Stapleton, Pitbull and Ed Sheeran, who won song of the year for "Thinking out Loud."

"We wrote it on a couch in my house," he said of his hit song he wrote with Amy Wadge, which also won him best pop solo performance.

Alabama Shakes' three wins included best alternative music album for "Sound & Color," as well as rock song and rock performance for "Don't Wanna Fight," which they performed.

"My heart is beating a mile a minute," said frontwoman Brittany Howard. "I promise we're going to keep going."

The Weeknd, who won two awards, performed in a cube that was brightly lit for "Can't Feel My Face" until he switched to a piano-tinged version of his upbeat hit "In the Night." Stapleton, who has written for dozens of country acts, won best country solo performance and country album for "Traveller."

"This is something you never ever dream of so I'm super grateful for it," he said.
