Harry Styles took home the most coveted award at this year's Grammy's, which took place in Los Angeles last night, scooping Best Album for Harry's House, while Beyonce broke the all-time most Grammys record with her 32nd honour, as Renaissance won best Dance/Electronic Album.

Hungarian-British conductor George Solti's 31 Grammys had been the most won by any individual, a record that had stood for more than two decades.

Accepting the Best Album gong, which he can put alongside the Best Pop Album Harry's House also earned, Harry Styles said "On nights like tonight, it's obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as best in music."

"I don't think any of us sit in the studio, making decisions based on what is going to get us one of these."

"This doesn't happen to people like me very often, and this is so, so nice."

While receiving Best Pop Vocal Album earlier, Styles had said, "This album from start to finish has been the greatest experience of my life. 

I'm trying not to be too emotional. I'm trying to just receive this night

"From making it with two of my best friends to playing for people has been the greatest joy I could have asked for."

Beyonce, accepting her Best Electronic/Dance Album award - one of four the star took home last night - said, "I'm trying not to be too emotional. I'm trying to just receive this night."

Jack Antonoff won Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, for the second year running, beating Boi-1da, Dahi, the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, and Dernst D’Mile Emile II. This year’s Grammys also marked the pop superprodcuer’s fourth consecutive nomination in the category.

Within the eligibility window for this year’s win, Antonof has worked on Florence and the Machine’s Dance Fever, the Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack, Taylor Swfit's All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault), I Still Believe by Diana Ross and the 1975’s Part of the Band. 

He’s also surely a shoe-in for a nomination next year, when his work on Taylor Swift’s Midnights and the 1975’s Being Funny in a Foreign Language will be eligible.

Ozzy Osbourne was unable to attend, after his ill-health-forced retirement from live work last week, so his award for Best Rock Album for Patient Number 9 was accepted by the record's producer Andrew Watt and Metallica bassist Robert Trujilo, who featured on several tracks and co-wrote the title song. 

"Ozzy, Sharon, we love you so much, you know," said Watt. "We just want to take a second to thank the unbelievable musicians that helped to make this album. 

"So many people came together for Ozzy: the great Taylor Hawkins; Chad Smith; Robert Trujillo; the great Jeff Beck, greatest guitar player alive; Josh Homme."

Elsewhere, Lizzo took home another major gong, claiming Record of the Year for About Damn Time. Accepting the award from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Lizzo said “This is so unexpected!” 

Dedicating the award to Prince, she continued, “When we lost Prince, I decided to dedicate my life to making positive music. I wanted to make the world a better place, so I had to be that change, to make the world a better place.”

Paying tribute to Beyonce, whose Break My Soul Lizzo beat out for Record of the year, she told the star that she had “skipped school to see you perform. Thank you so much. You clearly are the artist of our lives!”
