OLIVIA Rodrigo, Jon Batiste and Silk Sonic all hit big at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, each winning multiple awards on the night.

Host Trevor Noah kicked off the show with a joke about the week of controversy following the King Richard star’s actions.
Questlove also joked about the slap after picking up his Grammy, as his own Oscar win came shortly after last week’s dramatic incident.
