The 59th Annual Grammy Awards acted as a sort of second tribute to the late David Bowie with his final studio album Blackstar going five for five in its nominations for the evening.
Bowie faced stiff competition, but he came out on top in the following five categories:
- Best Rock Performance
- Best Rock Song
- Best Alternative Music Album
- Best Recording Package
- Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical
Bowie’s official Twitter account issued the tweet below after collecting its fifth statue.
Congrats to all involved with the creation of Bowie's ★, after a clean sweep at the GRAMMYs tonight: https://t.co/FNJYAnD3Gf #grammys2017
