Ariana Grande was named artist of the year and also won album of the year for Sweetener, while Taylor Swift's Reputation tour was honoured.

Taylor (above), who won tour of the year, said early press reports that the shows would flop "really did wonders for my self-esteem."

"It was great to hear people say that I would be playing to nearly empty stadiums!" she half-joked.

She went on to say that an "unforeseeable factor... was my fans, I owe everything in my life to you."

Oh Taylor, stop it.

Another winner on the night was Cardi B, who replicated her best hip hop win at the Grammys with another trophy for her ever expanding cabinet.

She recorded a video speech (above) as she was "busy doing some things."

Fair enough - those rhymes won't write themselves.

"I gotta thank my haters," she added. "Because y'all be saying mean things and think they discourage me but they make me go harder."

Wasn't us Cardi, we've been with you from the start.

Taylor Swift is so worried about her safety that she carries military-grade bandages at all times.

Last year, the star won a restraining order against a man who tried to enter her home armed with a knife.

Another man was arrested last February for attacking her front door with a shovel.

In light of those incidents, the star wrote: "I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds."
